Nayanmar 22 - Somasimara Nayanar

Somasimara Nayanar (சோமாசிமாற நாயனார்)

Birthplace  : Ambarakathur
Star           : Vaikasi Ayilyam

A staunch devotee of Lord Shiva, Somasimara Nayanar’s service to his Lord was to serve His devotees irrespective of caste or creed. He used to recite the Panchakshara and performed Yagnas everyday without fail. He was not only devoted to Lord Shiva, but also to Sundaramurthy Nayanar. He went from his hometown of Ambarakathur to Thiruvaarur to meet Sundaramurthy Nayanar and finally attained mukti as a result of his service and devotion!
