According to legends, a boy named Agnihotri went to the river with his mother to bath. The boy picked up sand and formed a pile on the shore. When the mother tried to remove it, she discovered that it had hardened in the form of Shiva Lingam. Thus, the famous temple of Shiva that still exists today was built. It is said that the river changed course to make room for the construction of the temple. One of the oldest temples is the Kattil Madom temple, which dates from the 9th or 10th century and whose architecture represents the change of style of construction from Chola to Pandya.
