 Greatness Of Temple:
  He was again born to the divine cow Kamadenu in the Chithirai month (April-May) on the Chithirai Star day and on the poornima day of the month.  As he was born from a picture-Chithiram in Tamil-and was born again on the Chithirai month on the Chithirai star day, He is named Chithra Puthran.  But he is popularly known as Chitra Gupta.  He was brought by Indira’s spouse Indirani.  Chitra Gupta, as a staunch Lord Shiva devotee, achieved the wisdom-look (Gnana Dhrusti) to monitor the deeds of beings.  Lord Shiva appointed him to keep an account of the characters and deeds of all beings and account them accurately.
It is believed that if one takes an oil bath on the Chitr Poornima day, , Chitra Gupta would reduce the consequences of sins committed.  As he was born of the womb of a cow on Chitra Poornima day, we are restrained from using cow milk, cow curd and cow ghee that day.  There is a shrine for his spouse Prabhavati in the temple.  People clean the entrance of their houses and decorate it with rangolis and chant slokas in his praise on this day.  It is believed that he would visit our houses and bless with longevity.
Chithiram also means wonder.  Guptam means secret.  As he has the power of even penetrating into the secrets of people – good and bad – and account them accurately, he is praised as Chitra Gupta, goes the other description about his  name.
  Temple History:

According to Sastras, Lord Shiva is monitoring the deeds done by the beings on earth and accounting them.  Lord Shiva wanted to create a deity for doing this job.  He looked at Mother Shakti, who, understanding his plan, drew a picture.  Both Lord and Mother gave life to the picture and thus was born Chitra Gupta.
