THIRUMANGAI-ALWAR   (early 9th century) has eulogized all the Divya Sthalas in Tondaimandalam, the geographical area, for long years, ruled by the Pallavas.

Alwaar's hymns are famous for the similes and intricately woven philosophical out pouring. They are also a telling commentary on the natural environment around those places.
