After the marriage, the Gods, rishis, and others who were assembled were about to be feasted, preparatory to which they all bathed in the Pottamarai-tank, (the tank of the Golden lotus) when certain of the rishis said, "Unless we see the God dance we will not eat." The God replied, "How can you expect to see one dance,
whose form is that of the seven superior and seven inferior worlds, and whose members are the places most famous for their shrines and temples? But, as this place is chief of all, since you wish it, you shall see me dance." Accordingly the God danced in silver temple, while the Gods, rishis and the numerous other attendants, joined the chorus and chanted his praises.
