Mallam Subramanya Swamy Temple History

Once King Kullothunga Pandya Bhupathi who went to forest for hunting, saw the bamboo sticks which were grown over the anthill and wished to make a palanquin out of these sticks. Anthill was grown over Subramanya Swamy who was doing penance there for many years. King who is not aware of the Subramanya Swamy’s penance, ordered his servants to collect the bamboo sticks. Servants while cutting the bamboo sticks, unknowingly chopped Subramanya Swamy’s both the hands and bloods starts oozing out of the ant-hill. Later in this night, Subramanya Swamy appeared in the King’s dream and ordered him to construct the temple to get rid of the committed sin. From then on the King used to offers his first prayer (pooja) to the Subramanya Swamy before starting their day.


Legend associated with Temple Corridor

The King handed over the responsibility of the temple corridor construction to the entrusted craftsman. This famous craftsman had a son who was young with high professional skills. He was in a love with a girl and was about to visit her place. To impress her, he sculptured two stone horses along with wheels and used to turn the temple corridor with his power and skills. By this time his father came to know about his son’s act, the temple corridor already took 180 degree turn and about to ride away, so he broke the legs of the horses to stop the further movement. The father killed his son in anger for his son’s foolish act, then killed himself.
