It is estimated that about 400 years ago, this area (Sathyamoorthy Nagar) was inhabited by wild animals and was a dense forest with the fresh spring river Bhavani flowing on the left side of a small hillock. Many sadhus, rishis and munis from the lingayat community in Karnataka who flocked these hills and chose this hillock as a sacred place for worship. They carved out a cave temple with three lingams (Bana Linga) brought from the River Bhavani. It is believed that the people who took the abode of the Lord, actually attained Moksha.

Mettupalayam, Nandavanam.

About 50 years ago, there was a major effort to renovate the burial grounds on the banks of River Bhavani which was in disrepair many years. Without any proper supervision, many people in the neighbourhood abused the land. Then a sangam (union) of all hindu communities called Anayithu Hindu Samudhaya Sangam was formed to promote the Nandavanam. The hindu burial ground nearby was not maintained properly and hence about 27 commnities came together without any inhibition and worked very hard to make this a reality today. There is an ambulance for the burial parade and also an ice-box to assist people who would like to avail of these facilities.
