This is an important Sivasthala, 8 miles from Arantangi Rail Station. How the temple, with
its finest architectural work, came t built and by whom is not clearly known; but in all
probability the treasure given by the Pandyan King for the purchase of horses could have
spent for the construction of the temple at Tirupperunturai by Manickavachakar, who spent
the larger part of his time there.
