This temple is closely linked to Lord Shiva's marriage with Goddess Parvathy. The Goddess wanted to have an earthly wedding with the Lord. The Lord granted her wish, by the construction of this shrine. Lord Shiva fought with Goddess Parvathy and put a curse on her, saying that she would transform into a cow and exist on the earth.When Lord Vishnu came to know about the fight between the couple, he wanted to do something to bring them back together and solve their fight. Lord Shiva was approached by Lord Vishnu, who asked him to reconcile with Goddess Parvathy , and he told him that Goddess Parvathy wanted to experience an earthly marriage, he further added that everything would eventually lead to that. He told Lord Vishnu to escort Goddess Parvathy to the Cauvery River, so that she could bathe in it, and doing so would result in her transforming into her original human form. After this was done, she actually did transform into her old self again. Then she was told by Lord Vishnu to go Bharata muni, who was a saint who lived at a close distance from there and to exist as his offspring. The saint then went to Lord Shiva and asked him to marry his daughter, thus Goddess Parvathy was granted her wish of having a wedding on earth.
