The Place was then ruled by the “BANGA” Kings. Banga Kings Contributed to the development of the Surya temple. There is small detail inscribed near the Nandeeshwara Idol which indicates that the temple’s history dates even prior to the 13th century. There is an interesting legend as to how the place got the name “SURYA”. Once upon a time, a woman was chopping grass with her son, when she hit a stone. Blood started oozing out from the stone she had hit. Afraid at seeing blood from the stone, the woman cried out “SUREYA” to her son. After the incident the place was named SUREYA, which gradually became “SURIYA” and finally “SURYA” as called now.
