Temple: This temple is housed atop of small hillock and one has to climb about 500 steps to reach the temple. The special feature of this Shivasthalam is that the sun's rays falls on the sivalingam (Maragathalingam) on the sivarathiri day in the Tamil month of Masi every year.

Agasthiya Munivar worshipped Lord Shiva at this sthalam transforming himself as a fly. It is considered very auspicious to visit three Shivasthalams ( Kadambar Kovil in the morning, Tiruvaatpokki (Ratnagiri) at noon and Tiruveegoimalai in the evening) on Mondays during the Tamil month of Karthigai.
