Even though the temple is very old, it came into lime light during the period of Thirumalai. Naicker who renovated several temples in and around Madurai god Kaalakatheeswarar and goddess Gnanambika are the presiding deities here. It was a practice to bring the idols of Abhirama Devi & Padmagiri Nagar from above mountain to this temple & Celebrate the Festival of Brahmasaram in the month of Chitrai. The Mandapam used for this purpose has been later embalished and the deities Kalakatheewarar & Gnanambikai were installed & consecrated during the 14th century. There will be Poojas for all the 5 timings in the temple. Other regular religious events are arranged as a routine.
