Aabathsahayeswarar Senthamangalam was part of the Kadava Chieftain Kopperunchingan Kadavarayan’s fort (who later became a King – reign.c. 1216–1242 CE). He converted it into a military stronghold and fought successfully against Kulothunga Chola III and Rajaraja Chola III, Hoysala kings and Jatavarman Sundara Pandyan. The temple is under the control of ASI and many stone inscriptions were found here after a long process of excavation. This is the historical place that saw the very last battle of the glorious Cholas after which the Chola Regime came to an end.
