  Temple History:

One Danaramalinga Thevar was residing with his family in Kurichi village 10 km from Pattukottai on the Aranthangi road. He was very spiritual and righteous in nature. He offered medical help, astrological advice etc. to the poor. People from Palathali village approached Thevar to perform the consecration of the Durga temple. He took all efforts for the function and the consecration was completed with all devotional spirit.

On one Friday, Danaramalinga Thevar heard a voice telling him to imagine an idol of the design he wished and keep it ready. The voice also told Thevar that a Siddha would call on him and the idol can be installed as advised by the Siddha. Danaramalinga Thevar then became Danaramalinga Swami. The Siddha came.

On one New Moon Day (Amavasya) the Siddha came and made out the idol as imagined by Thevar with 18 hands (ashtadasaujam), seated on a lion, 12 feet tall with Navapashanas. This was done in a single night. Without identifying himself, the Siddha left with a note that he was going to Kollimalai hills. The idol was named Ashtadasapuja Mhalakshmi Durga.
