AZHAGAR KOIL

There is also another story connected with this doorway. In the army of the Naick King there was a soldie r named Madurai Veeran (Warrior of Madurai) whom the princess loved and with whom she eloped to some unknown place. After their death, the story says, they were deified and worshipped.
Madurai Veeran is also known as Patinettuppadi Karuppan (guard of 18 steps).

Round about this ancient temple are the ruins of an old fortified town covering an area of 100 acres. It is said that the Naga
Princess Uloopi who, according to the Mahabharata story, married Arjuna ruled this place. There is no doubt that Nagas once inhabited the mountain. There is a temple dedicated to Naganatha and further many images of Nagas can be seen on the mountain. 

Naga worship is being conducted even today in this locality. There are many Mantapams and gopurams with images and sculptures of exquisite beauty and grace.The walls of the Vasanta.Mandapam inside the temple are blazoned with fine frescoes illustrative of the story of the Ramayana.
