  Temple History:
     
 

A debate about horses arose between Katru and Vinatha wives of Sage Kashyapa.  Both were adamant in their stand.  It was then decided that the loser should become the servant of the winner.  Katru lost and became servants of Vinatha with her snake children.  Vinatha’s son Garuda harassed the snakes.  The serpents, headed by Vasuki came to a cave near the Kumaradara River and stayed there and prayed to Lord Shiva for relief and protection from Garuda.

 

Lord Shiva advised them to approach His Son Lord Muruga which they meticulously followed.  Pleased with their prayers, Lord Muruga protected them.  As a mark of their gratitude to Lord, Vasuki the leader of the snakes spread its heads and became an umbrella.  The river is flowing in Karnataka.  The temple is built on the banks of this river.  The very name of the place itself is Subramanya.  As the Lord is holding the Cock symbol banner, He is named Kukkuda Dwaja Kandaswami – (Kukkuda-cock, Dwaja-banner, Kandaswami-Muruga).

There is a cave near the temple named Pallus from where Lord Shiva and Mother Parvathi grace the devotees.
