Temple History : For having playfully closed the eyes of Lord Shiva for three seconds and thus darkening the world he cursed his consort Parvati to be borne in the world thrice (Icha Sakthi, Gnana Sakthi and Kriya Sakthi) after which he will appear and marry her again. This is the story behind the three temples. The divine wedding is also believed to have happened here.

A rich man found his cow showering its milk into a shrub which was in the form of a Shivalingam and a snake consuming the milk and going inside. He covered this Swayambu Lingam (self-occurring) with an armour and started worshiping the Lord as Sungandavaneswaran. In due course the name changed to Thirumanangeesar.
