History & Significance of the Temple

Lord Ram, the seventh avatar of the god Vishnu, prayed to the god Shiva to absolve him of the sin of killing a Brahmin, committed during his war against Ravana. Rama wanted to have a large lingam to worship Shiva and he asked Lord Hanuman to bring a lingam from the Himalayas. When Hanuman was delayed in bringing the lingam, Maa Sita built a small lingam out of the sand available in the seashore. That small lingam is believed to be the lingam in the sanctum.
