It is said that worshipping in five places around this temple in a single day on the Dakshinayana Punyakala day -1) Nallur, 2) Valanchuzhi, 3) Sathimuttram, 4) Patteeswaram and 5) Avur would be very beneficial to the devotee.

Garuda, the eagle vehicle of Lord Vishnu got a nectar pot from Devendra and passed through this place to free his mother from slavery. He was intercepted by some demons when three drops of nectar fell on this place.
The three drops became a Shivalinga, Mother Goddess and a holy spring. Garuda bathed in the spring and won. A holy spring made by Garuda individually is called Jadayu theertham.
