Rudrapathi Temple - Kilakkadambur


This Temple depicts the history of Saivite Saints or Nayanmars in sculptures. Some of the names of Nayanmars are found in the Adhistanam with the script of 12th Century CE. These scultptures predate the icons of Darasuram, which were commissioned by Rajaraja II. Scenes depicting Karaikkal Ammaiyar’s departure to Kailash in inverted position, Kannappa Nayanar, Chandikeswarar and Thadagai a female saint worshipping Siva are the note worthy sculptures of this temple.
