The next puja is to be offered to Chandesa, an ordinary mortal raised to the status of General of Pramada ganas - Siva's forces. He was a canonized saint and hence worshipping is a MUST. The four Saiva Samayaacharyas Appar, Sambandar, Sundarar and Manikyavachakar invariably found in the company of sixty three Nayanmars deserve adoration too. Coming out of the inner prakara, we greet the image of Dakshinamurti, always installed in the western most niche on the southern wall of the garbha griha. Before coming out Rishabha or Nandi, the vehicle of Siva , is to be prayed for. And the worship will be complete with the worship offered to Sthala vriksha found in every temple.

This sequence is to be followed invariably, when a visit is made to Siva temple. Full merit is ensured, if this order is followed.
