AVADAYAR KOIL

The trunk of the Konrai tree which is the Sthala-vriksha is sacred and, to avoid the ravages of nature', the trunk has been cop
plated and preserved.Inside the temple there is an idol of Manickavachakar, which is worshipped with all ceremonial rites and rituals. The sculptural work the temple is exquisite. It is, perhaps, the best architectural marvel South India. Although the figures carved are seen everywhere in Southern temples, still the workmanship and the vivid portraiture of here are worth seeing.

A portion, of the Mandapam is built of stone which from a distance, looks like a zephyr work of wood, set together so nicely that an English-man fired a shot at one corner to know its real structure. The bulletshot could make a hole of about an inch in circumference. Another ma of construction of this temple is that the rays of the setting sun always fall on the sanctum sanctorum although it is inside three prakarams!
