There are several references in the Rig Veda about this.  Epics like the Ramayana and Mahabharatha, Smritis like manu Smrithi, parasara Smrithi have devoted hundreds of pages eulogizing its importance.  Saint poets and minstrel - musicians, like Gnanasambandar, Tirunavukkarasu Sekkizhar, Kambar, Arunagirinathar, Thayumanavarpoured out their souls in song shedding light on the spiritual heights of this mighty kshetra.
