    Importance: Rathna sabha of Nataraja perumal. Siva did urthava thandavam here. On request of Manji kesa muni and Krkoda muni. To teach a lesson and remove the ego of Badrakali he did urthava thandavam here. He lifted his left leg up to sky and while doing this his earring fell down and he lifted it up and placed it back to its place. Badra kali being a lady was not able to lift her leg as Siva did.

    Karikal ammai came to this place with her head and leg up. She was an ardent devotee of Siva and to her the whole place was considered holy and did not want to keep her leg down. She was blessed by Siva here.
