THE TEMPLES OF PADMANABHA

But one day, while Divakara Muni was in meditation the child took the ‘salagram’, which he was worshipping and put it into his mouth and made such a nuisance of himself, that the Muni chastised him. The child immediately ran (away and disappeared saying, "if you wish to see me again You will find me in Anantankadu, the forest of Ananta."

The sage was inconsolable and followed the chi. For several days without food or rest. Finally, he reached a wooded area near the seacoast and saw the child vanishing into a hug ilappa tree. Immediately, the tree fell the ground assuming the shape of a recumbent Maha Vishnu. The divine form was nearly 13-km. long, having his head at Tiruvallam (about 5 km. distant from the present fort) and its feet at Trippapur (8 km. away in the opposite direction).
