Injimedu is also called Yagna Vedhikai, as many yagna rituals are performed in the village.
Srimath Ahobila mutt was started by Srimath Aadhivan Sadagopan swamy, born circa 1300 A.D. He played a role in the construction of several temples in the area. In this Aacharya Parampara, Sri Sashta Parankusha swamy (the sixth Jeeyar) was also involved in the maintenance of these temples. These temples were destroyed in consecutive invasions and only the Ramar temple was left.
There are currently three main temples in the village: Perumal Temple, Sri Lakshminarasimhar Temple, and Siva Temple.
