    But several years back..
    i have seen foundations of huge structures near Kadambur lake...

    Kadambur is of two portions.. : Keezha (Eastern) Kadambur
    and Mela (Western) Kadambur...

    Famous amirtha kadeswarar (Kulothunga - chariot type well decorated structure - our Kadambur Vijay has been making frequent mentions on these ) and Rajendra's War-trophy bronze of Dancing Siva (bengal origin ) are located here...

    Keezhakadambur - there was State Archlogy maintained Uthirapathy temple .. dilapidated.. when i saw 10 years back..

    In between - near a lake ( NOT veeranam of course ) there were several sivalinga's lying (at least 80 to 100) ..

    it was speculated this could be Kadamubur palace and associated temple ..
