whole region heightened by the eyeful sumptuous beauty of the primeval
forests was so captivating that gods used to hold conferences here. So it
enjoyed the assemblage of all the highest divinities quite often and acquired
special sanctity of listening to the debates presided over by celebrities. The
charming idol of Daivanayakkan in standing posture is a specimen of superb art
and arrests the attention of the visitors at the first sight itself. And lifts
them filling their eves and souls with his apurvasobha. The temple tank is
called Devasabha pushkarini, perhaps due to bathing by the gods during their
visits to attending meetings. It .has another name Sobhana pushkaiini signifying
its auspiciousness on account of gods using it for their use. The goddess is

built temple enjoying all the parts and displaying fine sculpture, the mark of
the patrons' lavish patronage. It was visited by Tirumangai Alwar, whose
