ancient Tirukkovil of Siva built in a circular shape by Vijayalaya
Chola is a unique gift to Tamil Nadu. Narthamalai was the chief town
of the Mutharai rulers and enjoyed the status of capital. It is a
standing example of their patronage. Its queer circular shape,
though a very common architectural pattern in Kerala, is quite odd
and awesome in Tamil Nadu. Its sculptural marvels too are enticing.
Another temple of Siva lying in vicinity is called Kadambarmalai and
is worth visiting.
