TIRUKKADAIYUR

The command of the King was declared in the form of a document written on copper plates, which is still in the hands of the successors of the priest. This illustrates that the Goddess always comes to the rescue of her devotees if their prayer is genuine.

There is another interesting anecdote about a bhakta, named Kungulinga Kalayar, who spent all his lifetime in worshipping the Lord Amritaghateswarar. He used to go to the temple daily and offer Kungulingadhupam (a kind of incense) to the Lord. He became very poor. He was not able-even to procure enough food for himself and his family.

One day, his wife gave away her last jewel, i.e., the Mangalyam, which is a priceless treasure for any Hindu married lady to part with. The depth of poverty could be well
imagined when a lady had to part with this most precious possession. Kalayar accepted the jewel and went out to the market to purchase foodgrains for his family by selling it.
