HISTORY OF THE TEMPLE:
This temple at Rajah Annamalaipuram, built on a site donated by Rajah Sir Muthiah Chettiar of Chettinad, is well maintained by his illustrious son, M. A. M. Ramaswami, who is the Pro-chancellor of Annamalai University, founded by his grandfather, Rajah Sir Annamalai. When it was established in 1981, the Panchaloha idol was made by the sculptor of Nagercoil, Sri Bhattanachariar. It was taken in a procession from January 25, 1981, from the Krishnan Temple in Nagercoil to various places before it was installed in the temple at Rajah Annamalaipuram.
