    History:

    The Hindu legend, Sage Kalava Muni was suffering from serious illness along with leprosy and he prayed to the Navagrahas, the nine planet deities (God). The planets were pleased by his devotion and offered cure to the sage. Brahma, the Hindu god of creation, was angered as he felt that the planets have no powers to provide boons to humans.

    And He cursed the nine planets to suffer from leprosy and were sent down to earth in Vellurukku Vanam, the white wild flower jungle. The planets (Navgaraha) prayed to Shiva (God Linga) to relieve them off the curse. Shiva appeared to them and said that the place belonged to them and they would have to grace the devotees worshipping them from the place. This is the only temple where there are separate shrines for each of the planet deities.
