Masilamaniswara Temple, Thiruvaduthurai – Literary Mention

Masilamaniswara Temple, Thiruvaduthurai – Literary Mention
Tirumoolar composed his Thirumanthiram here under the Sthala Vriksham, Arasa maram. The shrine is praised in the Thevaram hymns of the three Saivite Saints, Tirugnanasambandar, Tirunavukkarasar and Sundarar. Saint Sundarar, in his hymns prays to Lord Gomuktheeswarar that he had reached him fearing the deep adverse destinies following him. This is the 36th Shiva temple on the southern bank of Cauvery praised in hymns. The temple is revered by Sampanthar in the third Thirumurai in one verse, Appar in five and Sundarar in 2 verses.
"இடரினும் தளரினும் எனதுறுநோய்
தொடரினும் உனகழல் தொழுதெழுவேன்
கடல்தனில் அமுதொடு கலந்தநஞ்சை
மிடறினில் அடக்கிய வேதியனே
இதுவோஎமை ஆளுமா றீவதொன்றெமக் கில்லையேல்
அதுவோவுன தின்னருள் ஆவடுதுறை அரனே."
