Subramanya used to be called as Kukke Pattana in the past. In the 'Shankara Vijaya' Anandagiri observes that Sri Shankaracharya camped here for a few days during his religious expedition (Digvijaya). Shankaracharya referred to this place as 'Bhaje Kukke Lingam' in his 'Subrahmanya Bhujangaprayata Stotram'.

Sri Subrahmanya kshetra has been brilliantly described in the 'Thirthakshetra Mahimani purana' chapter of the Sahyadri khanda comprised in the SanatkumaraSamhita of Skanda Purana. This kshetra is situated in the banks of the river 'Dhara' which originates in the Kumara Mountain and proceeds to the western sea.
