SUCHINDRAM

After this, the visitors worship Nilakanta Vinayakar called b  another name of Mukkuruni Pillayar.  Then they enter the largest southern corridor, appearing to be the largest, but it is next to Rameswaram only.  Kankalanathar, another name of Siva here is seen with a begging bowl in his hand, resembling to that of Maheswar standing near Mata Annapurna at Kasi.  Then comes the mini-shrine adorning with the beautiful images of Rama and Sita in sitting posture with Lakshmanan at the entrance in the company of Hanuman with folded hands.  Near the Northern entrance a big statue of Kalabhairava is installed and in a separate mini-shrine, beautiful images of Lord Muruga with Valli and Devayani on either side are seen here. 

Here are seen at the entrance, two big statues of Nanjil Kurava, the chief of this region and two of Davadasis, who practically donated all their wealth to the temple in token of their renunciation of material world.  Behind, there are minishrines dedicated to Mahadeva, Narayana, Rameswara, Krishna, Durga, Muruga etc.  This group goes by the name of Jayantheeswar temple group.  This group is also known as Pancha Pandava temples. And it is believed that Pandavas visited and worshipped the dieties during their vanavasa period.  Next comes the Alankara mandapam.
