It is also said that there was not enough development in one of the Pandya Prince’s fingers. After taking a dip in the river the King prayed to this Lord and his son’s fingers soon grew to normal size. The King designed the three main towers (Gopurams) to display his gratitude, and restored this temple. This place is also named Pandikkodumudi, because of its connexion with the Pandya kingdom.
