Significance of the temple:

Thirupugazh composed by Saint Arunagirinathar. The temple is revered in eight verses by the saint. As per the legend, the saint worshipped Murugan at Thiruporur temple and was on his way to Thiruthani Murugan Temple. During his sleep, a divine voice directed him to go to Vallakottai temple. He woke up to realise it was the order of Murugan and he visited the temple. The temple is considered equal in importance to the Arupadaiveedu, the six abodes of Murugan


Temple Legend:

Once upon a time, the place was home to a demon, by the name of Vallan. On learning difficulties and injustice done to Devas by this Asura's, Lord Muruga killed him to reinstate peace and harmony. He gave it the name, Vallankottai, according to the death wish of the Asura. Eventually, it came to be known as Vallakotai.

The temple constructed by the emperor by the name of, Bagiradha, in appreciation of the God, Vallakkottai It is believed by the people of that region that the place derives its name from an ogre named Vallan, who intimidated the people who lived there many years ago.
