Temple History : As per Indian Epic Ramayana, Sri Rama (Avatar of Vishnu) quelled many Soldiers including Ravana when he went to Sri Lanka to get back his wife Sita. To ward off the evil effect of this act he performed Shiva pooja at Rameswaram. On his return he crossed this forest made up of Champak flowers. Under a tree he found lord Shiva in a Self-formed state. He made preparations to perform poojas. Nandi Deva prevented Sri Rama not to reach Shiva by mistaking him as an ordinary human being. Goddess Ambigai appeared there by pulling Nandi on the sides and allowed Sri Rama to perform the poojas. Rama performed Shiva pooja and returned to city of Ayodhya . Later a temple was raised here.
