The village people consecrated the Goddess on the shores of the river and erected a thatched leaf shed over her. Over time that hut was replaced by a pretty temple and the Goddess who was called as Azhagu Nachiamman became very famous and goddess of several thousand clans of the village. Just outside the sanctum there is a statue of a white horse and its rider, The people believe that the souls of their ancestors lay buried under the feet of that horse.
