Tirumangaiazhwar (One of the 12 Alwars – 7th to 10th Centuries CE) has sung hymns of Divya Prabhandham here at Thiru Chemponcheikoil Thirunangoor in praise of the Lord.


Rama, in order to releive himself of the curse by killing Raavana, is beleived to have created a Golden cow on the advise of Sage Dhrudanetra and after performing the rites gifted it to a Brahmin who used the gold to build Thiru Chemponcheikoil Thirunangoor temple. Thus the name Chempon (gold) Sei (create) Kovil (temple).
