Sthala Puranam
Once Baratha Maharishi performed Penance here for a child and Parvathy devi herself agreed to take birth as his child.

Baratha Maharishi brought up Parvathy devi as his child and then married her to Lord Shiva in Tirumanchery sacred place which is near this village.

Hence this Putra Kameswara Theertham here blesses childless couples to have children. Moola Shiva Lingam is known as Vadaranyeswarar and Parvathy is known as Vandaar Kuzhali in the Temple.
