  Temple History:
  Mother Parvathi expressed Her desire to Lord to play balls.  Lord made balls of the four Vedas.  Parvathi continued Her play for too long a time.  Though it was time for sunset, Sun only delayed the setting.  The Rishis could not perform their Sandhya Vandanam due to delay in sunset.  They asked Surya to act but he said that He could not afford to incur the wrath of Parvathi.
They appealed to Lord Shiva.  Mother did not notice Shiva coming to Her and therefore was cursed by Him.  He tossed the ball that fell under the Sarakondrai tree here.  Lord said she would be relieved of the curse by performing milk abishek to the Linga under the tree.  As the ball –Pandhu in Tamil extinct here -Anaindhadhu in Tamil – the place came to known as Pandhu Anaindha Oor – Pandhanaindha Nallur.
To help His sister Parvathi, Mahavishnu came to the place as a shepherd.  He left His cow to graze during the day and supplied milk to Sage Kanwa in the evenings.  The cow saw an antihill and poured the milk there.  Sage Kanwa had no milk that day.  Lord Vishnu hit the cow, which jumped and placed its leg on the anthill.  Immediately, the cow and the shepherd were back to their original form.  Cow-Parvathi begged Lord to accept her in marriage.  Lord advised Her to perform penance facing north and reach Him. Ambica followed the advice and realized Her wish.  Lord Shiva appears in the Sanctum Sanctorum as Kalyana Sundarar.
