PALANI

It might have served as resting-place for a while to the Pandava brothers. This has now been protected and shrines for Draupadi, Palani Azidavar and Vinayaka have been constructed. The cleft in Aivarmalai was also doubtless a Jain hermitage in the centuries of the Christian era, which is evident from the 16 rock-cut
representations of the Jain Tirthankaras on the face of the overhanging rock.

Dharmapuram, about 27 miles away, is spoken of as Viratapuram Sri Maruda
Kaliamman temple near-by is believed to be the place the Pandava. Arms were kept hidden on a Vanni tree. Kadattur, 14 from
Dharmapuram, was where Virata's cattle were led away; Karatholuvu, 12 miles off was where the cattle were seized and
impounded; Tirupur, 32 miles, where the cattle were retaken; Palani and Varahagiri places where Arjuna did penance and
secured Siva's grace; Aivarmalai, itself where the Pandavas abided incognito.
