Point Pedro is the nearest town.
This temple was constructed around the 13th century.
It should be noted that Tamil Buddhist and Hindu cults co-existed easily, even when the rulers did not, and hence a Vaisnava tradition may have existed in early times as well.
The deity of the temple is called Vallipura Azhvar.
Azhvar names are common in Vaishnavite tradition.
