Once Upon a time Chola king Saw a Shiva lingam and built a temple there. According to the Brahma Purana, the holy place is called Chintamani and Katikachlam. Sri Vishnu Purana and Sri Padma Purana tell about the significance of this place. Rama, after defeating Ravana in Lanka, wanted to return to his native place. When Anjaneya expressed his wish to support Sri Rama, later he directed him to protect the Saptarishis. Two evils named Kalan and Keyan are trying to destroy the penance built by Sri Rama. Anjaneya tried to fend off the two evils. Narasimha made a sacred conch and holy discus to destroy the two evils.
God appeared before the sages as Lord Narasimha. He instructed Anjaneya to sit on a top of a small hill and direct devotees till the end of Kaliyuga.
