Trivikrama Avathara Sthalam. It was here that Mudal Azhwars (poigai,
Bhoodath and peiyazhwar's) met one night in a small room. They felt
the presence of one more person and found the Lord and Piratti(Lakshmi)
and composed the First three Tiruvanddadi in praise of Him. This
is one of the five Krisharanya Kshetras. Mahabali's pride bit the
dust in this kshetra.
