TIRUCHENDUR

The beautiful arch through which devotees pass springs a surprise next; for, from here for about a mile around the temple there exists a shaded shelter facilitating easy pradakshana for the visitors.  This unique feature enkindles curiosity, and as they walk along circumambulating, they come across the Vinayakar shrine called by a special name Thoondukai Vinayakar On the way they visit Valli cave lying to the North of the temple.  It is an impressive small shrine dedicated to Valli and Dattatreya.  In the rear, there is yet another smaller one carved out of sandstone inside. 

The image of Valli placed in the niche is quite pleasing and commands veneration.  Emerging, they reach the eastern side washed by the roaring waves.  Sooner than seeing, they hurry down to the shore for sea bath.  An indispensable ritual for the theists for bliss, and a jolly pastime for the tourists.
