The temple has a historical connection to a devotee who established the Vel for good luck just as in Srilanka . He has managed to retain and do all the Poojas. The government has now contributed towards construction.

Good place One of the nicest places in Kovilpatti, on top of a hill. Very quiet usually, you can either drive or take the steps. Very cool even in the middle of summer. The 8th abode of lord Muruga

One of the recent icon of kovipatti is kathiresan temple. You have to climb few stairs to reach the temple. Worth visit with the great view of kovilpatti.
