Adhishtanam at Elayathangudi

Close to Pudukottai near Karaikudi is Elayathangudi (Vidiathangugi). It is the home of the nattukottai chettiar Community. There are plenty of lakes and ponds with a huge siva temple . This area houses the adhishtanam and vedapatashalai of the Kanchi mutt slaiyathangudi1

Sri Sudarsana Mahadevendra Saraswati : Son of Seshadri Sastri of Madhyarjuna was known as Mahalingam prior to his sanyasa. He toured extensively and attained siddhi at Ilaiyattangudi on Amavasya in the month of Phalguna of the cyclic year Virodhi (1891 AD).His pontificate was for 40 years. A Temple has been built by the Nattukottai Chettiars on his samadhi.
