 Greatness Of Temple:

Residens of the locality say that Swayambulingeswarar is growing taller day by day. As a mother catering to needs of the child, Lord Swayambulingeswara graces the devotees Himself and does not wait for their asking anything. The existence of the temple in the place by itself is considered an asset to them. Nandeeswara (the bull vehicle of Lord Shiva) graces from His place before Lord Shiva.

Devotees gain longevity if they walk around the hill known as Girivalam. They are also relieved of past sins. They conquer the cycle of births and deaths and cross the ocean of Samsara – life’s burdens. Every step the devotee puts towards the Lord awards him/her the benefits of great yagnas called Rajasuya, Ashwamedha and the collective benefits of all Yagnas.

  Temple History:

In the year 1860, a resident of the place named Chinnavedi Chetty had a dream of the darshan of Lord Shiva telling him that there was a Shivalinga in a tope (a piece of land with many trees) and directed him to build a temple and promised prosperity to all in the location. Chetty immediately set out in search of the Shivalinga in his coconut tope but could not find it. Sitting sadly under a tamarind tree, he was scratching the land with a stick. He felt something while doing so, started digging and found the Shivalinga.

He decided to build the temple under the tamarind tree. He wanted to cut the tree as it was a hindrance. When he attempted to cut the tree, a Sanyasin came there and advised him not to do so. As Chetty could not find a suitable place, he went home sadly. He decided to take the Linga to his house. While digging, though the Linga just moved, it could not be taken out but only bent on a side. The man returned home sadly. As there was no alternative, it was decided to build the temple there itself.

Suddenly rain began to pour with thunder and lightning felling the tree to the root. No obstacle to build the temple now in the same place. The temple came up majestically. As He offered Himself, the Lord was named Swayambulingeswarar.

It is said that the Linga is growing taller day by day.
