Rajadhi Raja the eldest son of Gangaikonda Cholan ruled this place between 1018-1054 CE. He was also called Jayamkondan for the services he rendered to this Lord (to be verified).


During the Thirattupal (a sweet made from milk) festival celebrated on the Rohini star day (in May-June) the sweet is prepared and taken on an elephant from this temple to Lord Rajagopalaswami Temple. It is believed that Lord Jayamkondanathar felt that Lord Vishnu may be tired after play with Gopikas and he needed the sweet to rejuvenate. This ritual is one of representing worship of Lord Shiva and Vishnu as one.


Jayamkondanadar, Mannarkudi, is south of and near the Mannarkudi Railway Station.
