The temple is on the spot where Sriram rested after giving moksha to Jatayu as per sthala purana. Sita is not nearby as Ravana had already abducted her, hence only Bhoomiprati is seen. The Utsav Moorthy of Sriram (Valvil Raman) has four hands (Chaturbuja). Only here, Sri Rama gives his seva as Chakaravarthi (along with Sangu and Chakram).
Mandangudi a small village, which is the birth place of Thondar Adi Podi Alwar, is about 2 Km. from here.
There is one Brindhavan here which belongs to Ahobilam mutt 19th Jeeyar, Sri Maha Desikan.
