SIRKALI

Now remains the scene spectacular that brings out Mother Uma's infinite compassion for the devotees. Her boundless compassion transformed, but an ordinary lad into an interplanetary luminary, whose rare devotion and principal preachings are acting as the Polestar for those, lost in the ocean of samsara. 

The Jaganmatha's compassionate act of giving milk to that child took place at a spot now called Sirkali, lying 6 km off the famous Vaideeswaran Koil. 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 name of Uma Maheswar and in the second floor, Sattanathar in a separate niche like mandap; it is this, shrine built in the form of a boat and so this kshetra is called Tiruthonimalai.
