According to legend, Lord Murugan got Brahamahathi Dosham after killing the demon king Soorapadman. To get rid of this dosham, Lord Murugan erected a Shivalingam at this place and worshipped Lord Shiva. Later on this Sthalam became Tirumurugapoondi, a Paadal Petra Sthalam visited by Sundarar.
This temple is facing west and there is no gopuram in front as in other temples. The temple has come up in about 1 acre with high compound walls on the four sides. The main Lingam inside the sanctum sanctorum is two and a half feet in height and is facing west. To the right side of the sanctum sanctorum, there is a statue for Lord Muruga which is 5 feet in height. To the left side of the sanctum sanctorum the shrine for female deity Aavudainayagi is situated.
