TIRUKKOILUR

Then they invoked the compassion of Lord Trivikrama again; and as if an answer to their soul-searing appeal, there came then Kusadwaja a famous king of great prowess. When acquainted with the glory of the place and the predicament they were in, he promised protection. And at this juncture, there appeared in the sky a bright stately horse, and started descending. The sage then told him that it was sent by heaven only to destroy the demon of the underworld. Seeing Patalakethu nearing them disguised as boar, Kusadwaja gave a hot chase and killed him with an arrow. 

Returning to the asram, he regaled the asramites about the death of their awful enemy. Delighted Kalava requested him to name any boon that he would grant at once. Kusadwaja much to the surprise of the sage begged him to show Muktimarga, disregarding the earthly glory, like Digvijaya yatra or Ekachatradipatya. The sage then recounted the glory of the place with Mrikanda Maharshi episode and the like. Delighted with the uncommon sanctity permeating every inch of the Kshetra, he did penance there and was relieved of the shackles of Punarjanma with the darsan of the Omni-compassionate Lord Trivikarma.
