curses absolved by Thayar and hence the place is known as Indhalur
and Thayar is named Chandrasapavimochanavalli. Sayana Perumal has
Chaturbuja. Cauvery matha, Gangamatha can be seen near the head
and foot of the Lord. (As Ee promised river Cauvery to increase
her status, he made her as his bed at Srirangam, took her as his
mother at Thirucherai and here at Thiru Indhaloor, he has taken
river Cauvery above his head. Thus gave her the same status as river
Ganges who is on the head of Lord Shiva). Adaimuga Snan at Mudavan
Muzhukku at the Cauvery delta is considered sacred and devotees
from all over India assemble here for the Ayppasi ( Oct-Nov) festival.
