Vaikundanarayanar, Manakkal Ayyampettai was known as Thiruperuveloor Vinnagaram in the past. Stone inscriptions place this temple between 7th and 9th Century CE. References are also made during the times of Kulothunga and Rajendra Chola. During the time of the Thanjavur Nayaks (around 15th century CE). It is also thought that this temple could have been originally created during the Pallava period based on certain architectural features. The temple was damaged during the invasion of Malik Khafur in the 14th Century CE and neglected for a long time. In recent times Dr.R.Sivaraman hailing from here, played an instrumental role along with the Government, religious organizations and people to bring it back to its old glory.
