Located under ½ km East of Purushottamar Divya Desam is Sempon Sei Arangar Divya Desam in Thirunangur. Sempon Arangar is said to have come from Uraiyur. Hence the Lord here has 2 Goddesses similar to Azhagiya Manavaalan of Uraiyur.

After killing Raavana, Lord Raama is said to have stayed here for a few days. While here, he is said to have a made a golden cow and given it to a Brahmin, who is said to have built this temple.
