: Shiva manifested himself as a giant golden lizard for Rajendra Cholan here. An Udumbu (giant lizard) worshipped Shiva in an anthill. Indra also worshipped Shiva here.
: A gajaprashta Vimanam crowns the sanctum. The present structure is attributed to the period of Kulottunga Chola II. Recent renovation has resulted in the temple losing its older features.
