Vikrama Pandya 



(This great stotra written by the scion of Pandya dynasty who faced Malik Kafur is a prayer addressed to Lord Sundareswara. It is from Halasya puranam which deals about the town of Madhurai. There is a village called “Attala Nallur” founded by the Pandyas near Kallidai Kurichi. But there are no references to any temple of Sundareswara there.)
