 Greatness Of Temple:
  When the nectar pot broke, the water flowed in this place and a tank came into being called Chandra Pushkarini.  In course of time, it dried.

Lord Muruga grants darshan sitting on a peacock with sandal in one leg.  The temple has only one prakara.  As Moon and Jupiter worshipped in this temple, Mondays and Thursdays have huge devotee crowd in the temple.  There are three entrances to the temple.  Devotees can have the darshan of Lord Maleesar and Mangala Nayaki if they go through the Rajagopuram entrance.  As Vishnu (Mal) worshipped here, Lord is known as Maleesar.  Somanathar and Thenarmozhi darshan is open to those coming through Kattai Gopuram entrance.  The north entrance leads devotees to the darshan of Someswarar and Somasundari.  Lord’s blessing is open to devotees coming from any entrance.

Lord Somaskandar blesses the devotees in the inner mandap.  There are 8 sculptures on the sanctum wall in worshipping posture. Lord Nataraja has His shrine with Mother Sivakami.  He is named Kana Nattam Udayar meaning that the Lord would have no loss if devotees overlook praying to Him but it would be a loss only to such indifferent ones.  Praying in this shrine, according beliefs, brings the devotee progress in his trade and promotions in job.
  Temple History:
  Lord Brahmma was much annoyed when the great flood-Pralaya- took place and was in a dilemma as from where he had to begin creation again.  He surrendered to Lord Shiva for guidance.  Lord Shiva said, “Gather sand from as many holy places as possible and mix it with nectar and make a Mayakumbam-pot.  Fill this pot with nectar and keep the creation seed – Srushti Beeja.  Place a coconut on the pot and decorate with mango leaves.  Cover the pot with threads.  Keep it on an Uri so that it does not fall on sides.  This pot would float on the Pralaya flood.  I will come there.”
 Kumba the pot fell from the Uri and floated in the pralaya flood.  A Linga appeared at the place.  Moon-Soma worshipped the Lord here, hence, Lord is praised as Someswarar
