Babu Rayan pettai  is a small, beautiful village where this  very big temple occupying an area of 16 acres, was constructed in the form  of Garuda ( Divine bird, being the carrier of Lord Vishnu ). This fact  can be ascertained even today, if one takes the arial view of the temple.
It is said that Babu Raya, a noble soul, constructed this temple in 16th Century, under the divine instructions from Lord Vishnu himself.  Those who belonged to that family, and later, kings belonging to Nayakkar Dynasty had seen to that all the festivals, celebrations and daily rituals of this temple were carried out without any break.

Unfortunately, during the last 50 years, no one took steps. As a result , the temple got very damaged and at present,is  in need of immediate attention.  Eventhough there is enormous wealth,  the temple is remaining uncared.  It  is now under the control of HR & CE Department, with  pooja  being performed once everyday.

Special features :

As in Badhrachala, Lord Rama is found here with His consort, Sita Devi sitting on His left thigh.  Sri Hayagreevar, Sri Narasimhar and Sri Venugopalar sannathis are also present.  Married couple seeking children and students pursuing higher education can find their prayers fulfilled, once they visit and conduct poojas here. Many are said to have benefitted by visiting this temple for this purpose.

Lord Rama’s consort, Sita Devi, once came to take bath in Kosathalai river nearby. Mahishasuran came and disturbed her peace. Getting scared, Sita Devi came running and sat on the left thigh of Lord Rama. Mahisasura had already done penance and obtained a boon from Lord Siva, according to which only women can end his life. Accordingly, Lord Rama  placed  four dharbai grass in the four directions. They took  the form of four Devis and ended the life of Mahisasura.
Even today, those four devis, Sri Angala Pramaeswari, Sri Ponniamman, Sri Mulakkal Amman and Sri Kekaithamman remain as the guarding deities ( Kaaval Deivam) of this village.
