DHARASURAM

Record dated in the 31st Year, Makara, and Ba Dvitiya, Uttarashada (probably a mistake for Uttaraphalguna) of the reign of the Chola king. Thribhuvana Chakravartin Sri RAJARAJADEVA registering the grant of land (Irandu Ma mukkani arikkani) 23/160 of a veli to meet the expenses of worship, offerings, etc., to the God by a native of Peruchchalipuram, a village in Kilar-kurram, a sub-division of Pandyakulapati valanadu.

As originally Airavata worshipped the Lingam, the Lingam is named after him as Airavateswara. The Goddess in this temple is known a, Deva Nayaki. Whatever remains of the sculptural part of the temple is on the inside wall of the outer prakaram, about a foot from the Pool level.

The carvings contain different poses of gymnastic feats we see ii modern circus, shown by females keeping their head at the centre and (legs interwoven in such a skilful way as to form the circumference of circle.
