@CElliottUK: Thank you very much. This is an ancient temple, built in ninth centuary.
Legend has it that Manikkavasakar, the saint poet, was appointed as minister by king Arimarttanar and sent to purchase 10,000 horses from Arab traders but spent the money building a temple in Avudaiyar koil also called Tirupperunturai.
George Uglow Pope, (born in Prince Edward Island in Nova Scotia) got interested in Tamil and learnt the language on board a ship travelling to India. His magnum opus, an English translation of 'Tiruvasakam' appeared in 1900.
