Temple History : During the end of "Kreyathayuga" the Earth was destroyed by the water forces of 7 Seas. Thirupurambiam was existing from the Kreyathayuga and Lord Shiva wished to preserve this Holy place "Thirupurambiyam" and passed this holy work of preserving Thirupurambiyam to His son Lord Ganesha. Lord Ganesha using the powers of "Pranava Mantra" - Holy vibration "Om" controlled the forces of the 7 seas into one well and saved this holy place from "Pralaya" as per Lord Shiva. This well is known as Yezhu Kadal Kinaru. Lord Siva went to Madurai and reported as an evidence for a lady merchant in her case. Hence the name of the god is known as Satchinathar.
