At the initiative of Arulmiku Kattikulam Soottukkole Mayandi Swamigal, Arulmigu Dhandapani Temple was built by Irulappakkonar around 1910. The temple was only a temporary structures, Hence Shri Mayandi Swamigal has left a note that the temporay temple structure has to be replaced in due course by granite structure. To achieve the above purpose bhoomi pooja was perfomed on 26.01.2004.
Since then, basic necessities like water, electricity and foot steps to reach the top of the hill (300 ft height) were provided by using appropriate technology. Pooja was performed on 14.06.06 for construction of black granite structure of Karpagraham, Arthamandapam of Dhandapani Temple and Temple for Meenakshi Amman.
