........ KAILASHA NATHAR TEMPLE - HILL TEMPLE
Next to Nataraja is Kailasanada facing east, and having a separate Mahamandapam. That extends upto the Devi's shrine. In this arda mandapais a north facing Dandayudapani inside a separate niche. Even though there are two Muruga temples here, Palani belongs only to Danayudapaniand a special reverence is paid to him.
The main deity is in the form if a Linga. When the Devi performed penance in this Vilvaranya this Lord gave darshan to her. Hence he has been provided with a separate shrine. We can come to the Mururga temple by an entrance in the south wall of the Arda Mandapa.
