Thiruveswarar Singalandapuram is an ancient temple as is evident from some of the idols and the inscriptions found on the base of the sanctum sanctorum outer side. Below the Nandi Mandapam, there is an idol of a King and a carving of his queens, probably the one who built or developed the temple. The details of these inscriptions are not available as of now.
