TIRUVANAIKKAVAL

He also performed many miracles and at last disappeared. So, this wall is known as Vibhuti Wall and one who goes round this prakaram in the clockwise direction is blessed with children and gets all his
desires fulfilled.  In the next enclosure there is a beautiful portico of cruciform
shape leading up to the door of the sanctuary.

In the same enclosure grows a collection of coconut palms. The legend says that Lord Ranganatha of Srirangam used to visit this shrine once a year to worshipLord Siva, But the practice was given up later owing to quarrels between the Saivites and the Vaishnavites.

The Lingam, enshrined here, is Appu (Water) Lingam. The image is placed under a Jambu tree, which is much venerated and is said to be many hundred years old and hence this place is known as Jambuke - swaram and the Lord as Jambukeswara , Jambunathan, Jambunayakar and Jambu Lingam. There is a legend connected with the origin of this Jambu tree as well.
