  Temple History:
  Thadaga, a staunch Shiva devotee was unable to place her garland to Lord one day as her upper sari slipped.  She held the sari by one hand and tried to place the garland by other, yet could not.  Lord obliged His devotee by leaning His neck for her.  The girl was happy to place the garland on the Lord.  Since that day, the Shivalinga was always in a leaning posture.  It was the time when Chola king was renovating the temple.  On hearing that the Shivalinga was not straight as it should be, he sent his men to set the shivalinga in order.  They did their best but could not.  They even used elephants to pull the Shivalinga to set it in order but failed.  A Shiva devotee, one among the Nayanmars, Kungilia Kalaya Nayanar came there for usual worship and learnt that Lord was leaning on a side.  He began reciting the Panchakshara “Shivaya Nama” and offered the Kungilia Dhoop to Lord.  He took a rope covered with flowers, connected one end with the Shivalinga and the other around his neck and pulled to straighten the position.  As the rope tightened around his neck, he was likely to lose his life.   But Nayanar did not mind the risk.  Lord did not want to test Nayanar anymore and yielded to his pious efforts and returned to the original straight position.  The king paid rich tributes to Nayanar and honoured him with gifts.
