 Greatness Of Temple:

It is the staunch faith of the devotees that every deity resides in this temple, hence it was called Dheivambadi Valasu.  Deivam-God.  Later, it changed as Devambadi Valasu.  Lord Shiva appears with half-closed eyes, wearing the sacred thread as if in penance.  His eye on the forehead is in star shape and feet close to each other.

  Temple History:

Bhagiratha, a king of the Surya (Sun) dynasty, performed severe penance for thousands of years to bring down Akash Ganga to gain salvation for his ancestors and perform tarpan.   When She-Ganga came down with a devastating velosity, Lord Shiva spread his long hair to control Her speed and save the Earth.   He allowed Ganga to pass through a hole in His hair bunch.  As Ganga stayed in the head of the Lord, she assumed the status of Lord’s consort.  The presence of Mother Ganga with Shiva in this temple has this story behind.  Mothers Ganga and Parvathi bless the devotees with Lord Shiva.
