Vandiya Devan reached Kadambur Palace within an hour after he left Veeranarayana Temple. Sengannar Sambuverayar was one of the foremost noblemen in the Chola Kingdom. His palace stood as a testimony of his power. It looked almost as huge as a king’s fort with high walls and well-armed guards.
At the entrance, there were horses, elephants and their caretakers moving around and guards on the fort ramparts holding torches.
“Seems like something important happening here. Why did I have to come here today, of all days?” thought Vandiya Devan. But he was also interested in knowing what was happening in Kadambur palace.
