A TEMPLE FOR KANNAKI

All the same Kannaki welcomed her beloved husband and offered him one of her golden anklets for sale. They decided to proceed to Madura, the Pandyan capital and start life anew.

Their Kovalan entered the Goldsmith Street and offered the anklet to the goldsmith attached to the royal house-hold. It so happened that this particular goldsmith had Stolen the anklet of the Pandyan queen and he thought he had a good opportunity to cover his guilt. 

Accordingly he informed the King who without querying further ordered the execution of Kovalan and the seizure of the anklet. As Kovalan lay dead in a Madura street, Kannaki, fuming with anger and holding the other anklet in her hand, went to the King and accused him of murdering her innocent husband.
