Vishesh This Kshetra is known for Stone Garuda Vahana which becomes heavy in stages when taken out; initially requiring by four persons in the sannadhi and requires sixty four persons to carry at the end. Here Thayar(Nacchiyar) gets preference in all uthsavas and hence called Nacchiyar Kovil. During Uthsava days Nacchiyar comes out first to give darshan. The Lord Himself became guru( Acharya) and performed Pachasamaskara to Tirumangai azhwar at this place. Brahmothsavam during dhanurmasam (Dec-Jan) is celebrated in grand manner. The kshetra has fragrance all over and hence called Narayur (Narumanam fragrance in tamil).
