is stated that there are 32 tanks in this Sthala of which 9 are considered to be very
sacred. Special mention should be made of a Mandaparn with 1000 pillars where the marriage
festival of the Lord and the Devi is celebrated every year in the Tamil month of Aippasi
corresponding to October-November.
Vasanta Utsavam also is conducted here in the
month of April-May in the Vasanta Mandapam specially constructed for the purpose. There is
another Mandaparn too known as Mani Mandapam. The pillars in this Mandaparn, numbering 48,
give out unique musical sounds when struck gently. The Nandi in this temple is fairly
big,similar to those at Tanjore and Rameswaram.
