Greenery Ruled (Aatchi) the place and thus the name Pozhil Aatchi came which too in the years following changed as Pollachi.The temple was built during the period of Kongu Sundara Pandian and Kongu Tribhuvana Chakravarthi Vikrama Chola according to epigraphic findings. There is also one such detail on the southern wall of the temple showing the name of the temple as Thiru Agatheeswaram Udayar belonging to the sixth year of the rule of King Perum Padappu Sorupam of Kochi royal family.
