  Temple History:
  Protesting against the decision of Lord Shiva on the Mango issue favouring Lord Ganapathi, Lord Muruga left His parents and settled in Palani.  On His way to Palani, He relaxed at this place with His peacock vahan.  Later, a devotee on his way to Palani also relaxed here when a voice said “I am here as Dandayuthapani”.  The devotee did not understand the voice and proceeded to Palani.  Lord Muruga came to him as a devotee, gave a begging bowl to this devotee and asked him to build a temple at this place.  With the money collected through the bowl, he built this temple here.  
As Lord Muruga was angry on the Mango issue, this fruit is offered as Nivedhana to Lord here.  It is also believed that the grace of Muruga had made Salem famous for mango production.  Devotees praise Lord as Mambazha Murugan.  Mango-Mambazham in Tamil.
