The sanctuary is a block-built temple dedicated to the Hindu god, Lord Nageshwara (Shiva), and was built roughly 300 years ago with the Kotiteertham and Sangam Sivalayam temples.
A large chunk of the sanctuary complex is still under construction, with just the Mukha Mantapam and a piece of the drawing-out buildings exposed.
The Archeology and Endowments administrations have said that they want to make extra efforts to uncover and reconstruct the sanctuary.
