Each and every place has unique features and significance. In olden days Madhuramangalam was known as Mazalaimagalam. The temple at Maduramangalam is more than a 1000 years old and is said to have been built by a Thondaimandala king called Suparna.The utsavamurthi is the aradhanamurthi of Embar. Sri Embar is believed to be an incarnation of Garuda, for which reason the pushkarini is called Garuda Pushkarini. The villagers firmly believe that poisonous snakes will not harm them. In the Sannidhi for Sri Embar, he is seen wearing a pendant gifted to him by Sri Ramanuja.
