Legends of Sree Subrmaniya Swami Temple, also known as South Palani or the Thekkan Palani, have it that the temple has Velayudha Swami who is considered to be the protector of all the devotees of the temple.
Legend says that the four-handed deity of Lord Subrmaniya was found in the back waters of Kayal. This is because all the four landlords of Haripada at the same time had dreamt about the existence of the idol. And they found the idol in the back waters. The place where the idol was found a whirlwind had formed and a place where flowers were found. After finding the idol the landlord had ferried the deity. The idol was kept under a banyan tree which belonged to a Christian family. The place came to be known as Aranazhika ferry. Presently the place has a Muruka Temple.
The idol which has been installed in Haripada was brought through waterways. As a result the carrying of the lord through the waterways is celebrated as Jalolsavam. During the ceremony many people gather in groups to offer their homage to the backwaters of Aaru.
History says that in the month of Kartika at a time before noon Lord Subramaniya Idol was installed in the temple along with Eakchakra. It is said that a saint had installed the idol in the temple. People had a belief that the saint who had installed Lord Subramaniya in the temple was no other than Lord Sree Hari.
The fire had completely destroyed the temple in the year 1096 but the golden flagstaff of the temple had been kept safe from fire by the people.
