During the celestial wedding of Lord Shiva with Goddess Sri Parvati at Mount Kailash, an enormous crowd of deities, sages and rishis were assembled to witness the divine occasion and Sage Agastya was one amongst them.  Due to the immensity of the crowd, the Earth tilted to North and it was created a huge chaos.   Lord Shiva instructed Sage Agastya to move to South to bring stability on the Earth.  Sage Agastya reluctantly left Mount Kailash and arrived on this sacred land and worshipped Lord.  Lord was pleased at the devotion of Sage Agastya and revealed His existence.  This is one of the sacred shrines on the Earth where Sage Agastya attained the vision of celestial marriage of Lord Shiva with Goddess Sri Parvati.
Worship or remembrance of Lord Agastheeswara with his consort Goddess Sri Soundaranayaki provides abundances of devoutness.
This temple remains open from 6.30 AM to 11.30 AM in the morning and 4.30 PM to 8.30 PM in the evenings.
Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara !!
