PAZHAIYARAI VADA THALI ( MUZHAIYUR), – PONNIYIN SELVAN MEET AT THANJAVUR PERIYA KOIL 2016

...a Continuation post. 
26th September 2016.
141/ 24. PAZHAIYARAI VADA THALI
This is the 141st Devaram Paadal Petra Shiva Sthalam and 24th sthalam on the south side of river Cauvery. Appar has sung hymns in praise of Lord Shiva of this temple.

This temple is at Muzhaiyur.  During my earlier visits, the temple was closed, but this time  Lord Shiva gave us dharshan. There are lot of confusions about the Paadal Petra Sthalam at Pazhaiyarai, since the Pazhaiyarai Village has 4 temples in all 4 directions, via Kheel thali, Mel thali, Vada thali and Then thali. I thought previously this is one of the thevara Vaippu sthalam. After visiting this temple I understood that this is the Padal Petra Sthalam.

Iraivan : Sri Dharmapureeswarar.
Iraivi    : Sri Ganambigai
Some of the important features of this temple are....
  1. The temple facing east with a small Rajagpuram after the Rajagopuram.
  2. This is a mada type of temple with steps on east side. Amarneethi nayanar with his wife sculptures on the side wall of steps.
