  • ViraRajendran Sir,

    "In the 27th year (A.D.1045) of the Chola Emperor Rajadhirajadeva - 1 (A.D.1018-1054), a gift of money was made by members of the (village) assembly of Manali alias Singavishnu Chathurvedimanagalam. The money was deposited for conducting the festival of "Maasi Maham" at Thiruvottriyur Adhipurisvara Siva temple

    So Manali is that old - Singavishnu period.

    The enarby Thirukkattuppali is also mentioned in Pallava Copper Plates.

Howdy, Stranger!
