Agastheeswarar Sholavaram is an ancient temple that could have been built during the Chola Period as is evident from the architecture style of the Vimaanam.
A cow was found shedding milk in an ant hill and upon digging the Shiva Lingam was found and the Agastheeswarar Sholavaram temple was built. The legend of Sage Agastya installing and worshiping the Lingam is also associated with Agastheeswarar Sholavaram.
You can reach Agastheeswarar Sholavaram temple which is after Red Hills and by taking aright in the fork before crossing the Karanodai Bridge.
