A king ruling this region was a Lord Muruga devotee. He was also in charge of the army of Rani Mangammal. He used to visit Kalahasthi often to worship Lord Shiva. As he grew old, he could not continue his frequent travels. Merciful Shiva, to fulfill the wish of the devotee granted darshan to him in this place and stayed here as Kalatheeswarar. The place came to be praised as Then Kalahasthi – Kalahasthi of South.
