SUCHINDRAM

This superb piece of sculptural art is carved out of a single rock. The four pillars adorning it have many subsidiary pillars within its frame work.  When struck with a piece of hard material, they produce different and distinct melodious tunes of various musical instruments.  There lies next, another shrine dedicated to Dharmasamvardini Devi. Its origin is interesting anti bears semblance to the glory of Andal.

It happened that a Vellala girt developed great devotion to the Moolayar Sthanamalayapperumal from infancy, and when she thirteen, she was visiting the temple everyday along with her mother. One day she miraculously disappeared while praying with her mother.  The afflicted mother wailed before the Lord to such an extent that an aerial voice then consoled her, stating that she had merged in the Lord in response to her soul-stirring supplication.  The grief-stricken family installed a life size bronze statue here and every year in the month of Masi, tirukalyanam - a festival is celebrated with great pomp and splendor.
