Kesi who has seen his brother defeated wanted to take revenge and, consequently, she and her friend, Kothai has taken the form of rivers and surrounded the temple with the intention of evading the temple. At this time, it is estimated that Act"devi has raised the temple . Therefore, the temple is situated at a height of 55 feet from the ground level. The image of the Gopuram clearly indicates this.

In 1740 the men of the Nawab of Arcot plundered the temple and the golden idol (ulsava vigraham).  It was so heavy. He kept the idol with trash in the room of the wood. Each day, the idol would come on top, and in spite of the fact that they are attached with ropes, the idol would come toward the top. At the time, the Nawab wife developed a serious disease that can only be corrected by anyone. , IT manager has appeared in the dream of the temple priest and ordered him to go to Nawab's palace and inform the Nawab that if the idol was returned, his wife would be cured of the disease. The Nawab acted accordingly and his wife was cured. The Nawab gifted a silver tray and a cap to, it manager and this is used at the time of Sheeveli everyday.It has also provided funds for the achievement annual puja -MR.  , Thiru Alla Pooja.
