Renovations were done in the year 1014 during the reign of Raja Raja Kulothunga Chola. Saint Arunagiriar had sung the glory of the temple in his Tirupugazh hymns. A beautiful and blessingful Shiva temple on the top of a hill.

Lord Sri Rama after winning the war against Ravana and returning to Ayodhya wanted to perform Shiva Puja in this place. As Sri Hanuman could not return in time with holy Ganga water and flowers from Kasi, Rama shot an arrow on rock creating the Rama Theertha and completed the puja. Sri Hanuman threw the pot of water from here which fell at a distance of about 12 kms from the hill and became Hanuman Theertha. People take the first dip in Hanuman Theertha and then at Rama theertha for relief from sins. Lord Siddhi Vinayaka adores the temple. Vayu Theertham and Varuna Theertham are on the western side of the hill. Indira Theertham is on the east. Hanuman and Yama theerthams are on the north and south respectively. Vasishta theertham is at the top of the hill. This is a divine hill surrounded by holy theerthas.
