Goddess Mahalakshmi was finally pleased with the request of Shri Adhi Sankaracharya to shower with gold to the poor lady. Second picture is not visible.

have you ever heard of a tuft on the shivalinga
here is a deity of kudumiyan malai with tuft 

the temple is near pudukkottai

Before this place was called Kudumiyanmalai, its name was Thirunalankunram. Legend goes that the king used to visit the temple everyday in the evening and it was customary for the priest to give the prasad to the king after the evening puja. One evening, it was getting late and King Sundarapandian had still not come. Since the closing time of the temple was nearing, the priest gave the prasAd to the dasis who danced everyday at the temple. Seeing the king enter the temple just as the dasis were leaving, the priest got worried and took the flowers from the dasis who had already worn it on their hair and gave it to the king. Seeing a strand of hair on the flower, the king became suspicious and questioned the priest about the presence of hair in the flowers. Overcome by fear, the priest lied that it was from Lord Shiva's head. Angered by the priest's reply, the king locked him inside the temple, telling him that he would come the next day and check if the Lord did really have hair. Worried, the priest prayed to the Lord.


The next day when the king came, there was indeed a kudumi/shikha (tuft) on the Shiva linga! Becoming suspicious, the king tried to pull it from the Shiva linga, only to see blood coming from the lingam! That's how the Shiva here got the name ShikhagirIshwarar & the place got the name, Kudumiyanmalai.


you can see the tuft on the shivalinga which is why the name kudumi( tuft)yaan malai









this is the only place in India where the 63 Saiva Saints (Nayanmargal) is depicted along with Shiva and Parvathi on Rishba (Bull).


stone wall with inscriptions on Indian Classical Music and he explained that it is the oldest inscriptions on Indian Music providing details on the 7 Musical Notes and the rules arranged in 7 sections.


On the right is the old and main temple (Kudavaraikkovil) carved out of the hill. The front part was built later but the actual sanctum sanctorum, as you can see, is inside and carved out of the rocks of the hill.

All the Stars and Rasis (Birth Signs) on the ceiling


 these inscriptions as the "first record to mention the solfa names of the seven notes... where the srutis are designated by resorting to the vowel changes in the name of the note and reduced to a mnemonic system of absolute notation."
