10 day Brahmmotsavam drawing a huge crowd of devotees with a car festival on the 9th day in Masi; 10 day Aadi Pooram especially for Ambica with Wedding Festival, etc., these are the festivals celebrated in the temple.


Opening Timing

Morning: from 06:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and Evening from 3:30 p.m. to 09:00 p.m.

During the days of Saivite Saints Appar, Gnanasambandar and Sundarar, the place was known as Pazhamalai in Tamil and changed to the Sanskrit version Vruddhachalam in the days that followed.  Vruddham means ancient and Achalam hill.  It is also said that Lord Shiva appeared here only in the form of this mount and other mounts came into being only later, according to scriptures.   Sage Vibasithu had a dip in the Manimutha river and undertook the renovation of his temple.  He gave the workers the leaves of the Vanni tree which later changed into coins to the value due to the workers based on the quantum and quality of his work, is a story believed by generations of devotees.  The Vanni tree is 1700 year old, say researchers. Sundarar passed through this place without singing the glory of the Lord.  He was stopped by the Lord, made him sing and gifted 12,000 gold coins, placed it in Manimutha River and directed him to collect it from the temple tank in Tiruvarur, according to sthalapurana.
