Masilamaninathar Temple was built in 1305 A.D by the Pandya King Maravarman Kulasekara. This 13th centuary temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva & is built in Indo-Chinese architecture to attract Chinese merchants. Last tsunami engulfed the main gopuram & the carved granite pillars. Now the  Shiva-lingam is housed in the Dansborg Museum & the villagers used to conduct pooja only on the Sivaratri Day . The Tamilanadu Government is restoring this area. Granite stones are laid to protect the remaining of this temple complex from sea erosion.
