Athi Varadar

Athi Varadar, the god was worshipped by the likes of Ramanujacharya, Vedanta Desikan, Manavala Mamunigal. But it had a minor damage, and had to be replaced, as per Agamas. 

So a new Vigraham was brought from a nearby place, Pazhaya Seevaram, and was kept in place of Athi Varadar. Athi Varadar was then, and even today, kept in the pond of the temple, Anantha Saras, and is raised once in 40 years, so that the devotees can see the Vigraham that was worshipped by the greats.
