The temple represents one of the five earth elements i.e. vayu (air). Here the shrine of Lord Shiva is worshipped in a form of vayu linga as a representative of vayu (wind). It is believed that the place where the temple stands is where Lord Shiva rendered salvation to Kannappa, one of the 63 Shaivite Nayanars.
