loss of the idol from her bed chamber. The princess was in a love-lorn state and, when it
was found difficult to bring her to normalcy, the Mogul emperor sent her to Srirangam
along with a posse of soldiers under a commander with orders to bring the idol back.When
the princess and her escort reached Srirangam they found the temple doors closed.
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.
