On the way to Chidambaram Natarajar temple from Nandhanar madam, we went to this Sekkizhar mani Mandapam. This was managed by the Karanthai Jayakanthan – Duraikannu Sekkizhar Vizha Trust, since 1989. Most of the trustees are from United Kindom. Land for this Manimandapam was donated by Arumuga Navalar, one of the Shiva devotee from Sri Lanka. Arumuga Navalar was the instrumental for finding out the original place of Thiruketheeswaram Temple in Sri Lanka after it was completely destroyed by the Portuguese.
Ground floor housed a hall called Thirunavukkarasar Hall where regular discourses and functions are held. The first floor walls are adorned with sudhai reliefs of 63 Nayanmars and 9 Thokai Adiyars story.
