The photo above is outside Sage Markandeya temple . It is said that he is the son of Sage Mrukanda and Maruthuvathi and was born after a lot of tapas.   He did penance here ( Thiru manal medu )   to ward of danger that was to occur at the age of 16.  This village is one kilometre from Thirukadaiyur.  It is said that a pilgrimage to abode of Goddess Abhirami and Lord Amirthakateswara is complete only if we visit this temple too.
