History

Lord Shiva in the form of Sivasakthi had come down as a watch God in the name of Karuppannaswami. There is also a spot here called Uppiliappan Thittu. A king called Mohur Pazhayan ruled Mohanur in the past, took all the decision after praying to Navaladian. He declared the nearby Neem Tree as the Watch Tree of the region.
