DHARMAPURI

No idol had been made for the Princess,
but to commemorate this incident, there a painting of the Princess on the wall. Only bread and-butter is offer as oblation to
the Princess, even now, as she was a Mogul. When the Mogul emperor heard
the news of  beatification his daughter, he sent rich presents to the temple, which are still being used.The washerman who could readily distinguish the taste of ablution water was named thereafter as Iram Kolli, water taster Kodavar's son who brought back the idol to Srirangam was named
Tiruttazhvarai Dasar.

The troupe of dancers, who helped in
regaining the idol, was named as Isai Ariyum Perumal Kootattar, the troupe that brought back the idol by music. In the 13th century again, for the third time, Muslims attempted to remove the idol of Ranga- natha from the temple. When devotee’s
got scent of this iconoclastic intention of the heretic invaders the idol was secretly removed to some unknown place.

As the Mogul armies were fond of dance and music even in their camp near the battlefield, some local devotees mooted a very intelligent plan. They procured a
very famous dancing girl and deputed her the army camp to persuade the Commander - in-chief not to destroy the idol of the temple. The dancing girl by her music and dance could win the heart of
the Commander-in-chief who became almost mad in with her.
