dc.descriptionThe Vasanta or Pudu Mantapam built by Tirumalai for the reception of the presiding deity of the place, who consented to leave his dark cell in the temple and pay the king an annual visit of ten days' duration in the hot month of May, on condition of his building a hall worthy of his dignity. Hall is 333 ft. x 105 ft. and consists of four ranges of columns, all of which are different, and all most elaborately sculptured. The ones in the centre have life-sized figures attached to them. Effect like that at Ramesvaram. 1623-45.
