The etymological distinction behind the name Annur has various accounts to its credit. One such widely believed account is that the term may have been derived from the term 'Vanniyur' which later attained a completely different form and became 'Anniyur' and finally transformed to Annur. The traditional story accepted as history of Annur states that over a thousand years ago, a huntsman hit a rock under a Vanni tree. Subsequently, the tree started bleeding which took the hunter by surprise. He then reportedly called the people of the village to look after this mystery. Afterwards they discovered a Suyambu Lingam (Lord Shiva) Idol and decided to establish a temple at the very spot.
