HISTORICITY

The ruling princes of Narayanavanam made additions by building the spacious garbhagriha, in addition to sculptural adornments made to several parts. Next comes Tondaman Chakravarti, ruling from Tondamanadu, a few kilometers off the present temple. He contributed to the further expansion by digging a grand broad tank for the benefit of citizens and visiting pilgrims. Celebrated Pallavas entering the area of expansion, built many mini-shrines and fortified the fort walls, adoring them with mahadwaras surmounting tall towers. Their beautification of several parts in and out of the main mandir still peeps into the eyes of the pilgrims and drives home the truth that offering Kainkarya to the temple tantamount to worshipping of the lord. Does not awakening of the aesthetic sense, end in enkindling spiritual instincts? The superb sculpture beautifying the portals of the garbhagriha illustrates this point. The Gali gopuram lying a little further the Bichchala gopuram, was undertaken to heighten the low lying area of the river Swarnamukhi then flowing very close to the temple, which construction consummated in the expansion of the town.
