Pathigam (Hymn) rendered by :Saint Thirugnanasambanthar and Saint Sundaramurthy (Sundarar).
This east facing temple has no main tower (Rajagopuram) or dwajasthambam (flag post). But there is an arch at the entrance.
Saint Thirugnanasambanthar received golden plates (“thalam”) from Lord Shiva here.
The historical name of this temple is Thirukkolakka. However, it is now known as Thiru Thalam Udayar Koil.
Other than the shrines of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathy, shrines and idols of lords Periya Vinayakar, Murugan with his consorts, Somaskanthar, Natarajar, Dakshinamurthy, Lingothbavar, Brahma, Vishnu, Mahalakshmi, Durgai, Chandikeswarar, Nalvar, Saneeswaran, Suryan, Chandran and Bairavar can be seen in the corridors.
Goddess Osai Nayaki graces from a separate temple. Lord Vinayakar and Lord Dandapani can be seen on either side of her shrine.
Lord Shiva gave the plate to the saint but it was Goddess Parvathy who infused it with sound. Those facing speech impairment can visit this temple, place honey at the feet of Goddess Parvathy and consume the honey after performing poojas.
It is believed that by doing so, devotees can be cured of their speech problems. Furthermore, when this happens devotees make an offering of gold plates (Thalam) to the lord here.
Interestingly, there is a story that a mute child was able to speak by the grace of Lord Shiva of this temple in the year 1979.
His father donated a golden "thalam" which can be seen at this temple. This temple also maintains a list of such miracles and till date there are about 473 recorded incidents.
