This is one of the oldest temples built during the Chola dynasty.  The temple inscriptions reveal the dates back to the great rulers of King Paranthaka Chola and King Rajaraja Chola.

The legend has that Goddess Parvati turned out a cow at the curse of Lord Shiva.  She came down to the Earth and worshipped Lord Shiva by pouring out her milk on a Linga.  Lord Shiva was pleased at the devotion of Goddess Parvati and married to her at Thirumancheri which is close to Thiruvelvikudi.   Consequently, all the marriage rites were performed on the sacred land of Thiruvelvikudi and the celestial marriage of Lord Shiva with Goddess Parvati took place in Thirumancheri.          

Worship of Lord Kalyana Sundareswarar and his consort Goddess Sri Parimalasugandha Nayaki removes delay in marriages and provides good physical & mental health.

This temple remains open from 6.00 AM to 12.00PM in the morning and 4.00PM to 8.00PM in the evenings.
