The Ratnagirishwarar Temple is a result of some locals that came together in the year 1972 who aspired to have a place of worship for the local community. For the same purpose, they approached Sri Paramacharya of Kanchi Kamakoti Mutt who forecasted that there would be a Shiv lingam found in the seashore off the Thiruvanmiyur coast. This lingham was eventually found after three months, following the forecast, and a temple was constructed to accommodate it. This is how the Ratnagirishwarar Temple came into existence. Being a Shiva temple there is also an idol of Lord Ganesh in here. The temple has enthralling rituals every day.
