SIRKALI - TIRUNILAI NAYAKI TEMPLE
This ancient Saiva kshetra embodies certain spectacular episodes that have
neither parallels in the past, nor future could ever produce similars. They
spotlight Mother Parvathi' unbounded compassion and Maheswar's aritapakashapatha.
Though both of them are spectacular and veneration worthy, Mother's anurag
raises the glory of the kshetra and parches at a higher place which gained an
indelible place in bhakthi literature. The Jaganmatha's compassionate act g
giving milk to a crying child later named Tirugnana Sambandar took place on the
embankment of temple tank of this place.
It is also the scene of many thrilling events linking the lives of Hari-Haras.
It is here Lord Mahavishnu's pride was humbled by Lord Siva , it was here Lord
Siva is abiding in the first floor with Parvathi going by names of Uma Maheswar,
and in the second floor Sattanathar in a separate niche like mandapa it is this
shrine built in the form of a boat and so this kshetra called Thiruthonimalai.
