........ AZHAGU NATCHIAMMAN TEMPLE - GIRI STREET

Have you knocked your head on the steps of Valampuri Vinayagar? Then move on. A little distance away is the third peacock Mandapa.

Here is Idumban. Tank abutting the hill.The tank spreads over 148 acres. Let us go to the temple here. To the left of the temple stands Idumban canopied only by the sky. In the space where the papal and the neem is growing together, some unknown couple figure is seen half submerged within the earth. Like Nandi, a lion vehicle is seen in front. There are three Azhagu Nachi Amman temples for Devasthanam, one in Kothaimangalam, the second in Kumarasamudram and the third this.

The term Naikkan is used in Chilapathikaram for the father of Kovalan and Kannagi. In Manimekalai this denotes merchants. Nayakan is the same as Naicker. In telegu it became Naicken. The feminine gender became Naichi, then corrupted into Nachi. The Idumban hills extends upto this temple,. Now a doubt arises. Was there a temple for Idumbi hereand was it converted into Azhagu Nachi.
