Temple History:

   During the 17th century, Kovilur was part of the Mysore Samasthan. The king of the state offered lands and materials to the temple known as Srothriam. Therefore, the place is also called Srothriam Kovilur. The Mysore kings were devotees of Lord Vishnu. They were rewarded with male progenies by the grace of Chennakeswara Perumal who is also regarded as the elder brother of Tirupathi Venkatachalapathy. Chennakesava Perumal is the family deity of many families here.
