The heart of this book is a temple built in the Tamil-speaking South in the late 9th or early 10th century CE, at Tiruccennampunti, near Trichy. Now abandoned, that temple is one of the earliest known Saiva temples of the Cola period. The evidence gathered here suggests that this shrine, dedicated to Siva as 'the great god of Tirukkataimuti', was raised in honour of a deity who is lauded in the Tevaram (7th-9th centuries), a poetic anthology of the earliest surviving Tamil Saiva hymns. PRINTED PAGES: 406.
