a holy tank, is on the north of the 100-pillar mandaparn. There are two mandapam in the
tank--one for Lord Sri Artigiri Varadaraja and another called the Neerali mandapam. Lord
Sri Artigiri Varadaraja is lying below the water and is taken out once in a generation for
the worship by the devotees.

of Azhwars have been installed. Sri Perundevi Tayar, the consort of Lord Varadaraja, pays
a visit to this garden every Friday, when a festival is celebrated. It is said that Sri
Perundevi Tayar had her manifestation in a holy tank near the eastern tower. The shrine of
this Tayar is on a small hillock. On entering the Hastigiri Hill gate we notice in Sri
Guha Narasimha's shrine, Lord Sri Alagaisingar and Sri Haritartha Devi. The Supreme God
here gave Lord Brahma a darsan. Yathoktakari Temple. The name Yathoktakari means "one
