  Saint Tirunavukkarasar had sung the glory of the Lord of the temple in a metre that runs fast with such melody suiting to the dancing skill of the Lord as the very name Nardana Pureeswarar-Aada Vallar suggests. “He is penance Himself, He is the Veda and its seed, wearing the crescent moon.  He always retrieve me from sufferings, hiding the Ganga in head and has Mother Uma as His part, He is all philosophy.  I have wasted and lost all the days being away from Him.  That Lord is in Thalayalangadu.” This is the 93rd Shiva temple on the southern bank of Cauvery praised in hymns.
