RYALI

You will gain merit, and the adorers will be emancipated. So you will serve the cause of religion too. Go ahead." Delighted at the heavenly bidding, he set sail with it forthwith, but when he came to this area, the boat refused to move further. Presuming it to be the spot God chosen for it, he felt elated; but when the thought of means crossed his mind for installing it, he felt helpless - how to meet the cost of installation. It grew into a big problem and worried him endlessly -he was on the verge of madness. The news reached a Chola king ruling over the region. Immediately deeming himself the God-chosen agent he took up the installation and construction of temple. in no time, the entire region throbbed with unprecedented devotional activity emanating from the beautiful shrine he built, and he made endownments for carrying on several prayers services to the Lord. The strangeness and sancity of the image attracted devotees from all parts, and in course of time it grew up into a pilgrimage centre of great spiritual significance.

Though this temple prospered, its inscriptional proof is quite inadequate, nor history divulges facts with dates. Yet it is luring the art lovers and god-worshippers through out the years and is making strides in its own characteristic way, despite poor publicity by the Government. And if it is accorded, shines as the pole-star soon.
