The temple was founded 26 years back by Swami Krishnaalwar Swamigal. Every year, his birthday is celebrated by his devotees on the occasion of Guru Jayanthi.
Around 120 packets of chocolate were donated to the temple by devotees. Each packet weighed around 1 kg and these chocolates were used for decorating the sanctum sanctorum and the main deity, Pratyangira Devi.
