SRIRANGAM

The soldiers however went inside found that the idol was not there. On hearing
the princess fainted and passed away at the temple entrance itself. Only the mortal remains lay prostrate at the temple doorstep, her spirit or soul obviously with
the Lord. She thus showed the climax of love towards the idol, which was none else than God himself in visible form. When they to know that the emperor had
sent his troops to get the idol back, troupe of songsters carrying the idol of Manavala
Perumal thought wise to disperse without going in a batch lest they should be readily recognized.

During the absence of Manavala Perumal narrated above, the temple doors were opened again but, to the surprise of all it was found that the idol of Nachiyar, which was kept hidden under Vilva leaves, was also missing. Consequently,' they had to install new idols of both Manavala Perumal and Nachiyar. When 60 years had already passed since the incident of the loss of idols from Srirangam temple, and subs- ttutes had been installed in their places, public memory being short, people forgot about theoriginal idol of Manavala Perumal.
Therefore they did not readily believe the story of the regaining of the original idol under mysterious circumstances.
