  • Hi
    the only devara paadal petra sthalam in that area is thiru maagaaral
    between uthiramerur and kanchi.

    has lots of association with rajendra and his stay in chidambaram.
    some story about a jack fruit being sent to the king daily.

    also shiva appearing as a golden iguana lizard to rrajendra.

    but not sure if it is called pulivanam. any association to word puli
    actualy leads to vyagrapadfar.

    it could be a vaipu sthalam mentioned in another place's devaram.
