Where the epic was written

நடையின்நின்று உயர் நாயகன் தோற்றத்தின்
இடை நிகழ்ந்த இராமாவதாரப் பேர்த்
தொடை நிரம்பிய தோம் அறு மாக்கதை
சடையன் வெண்ணெய்நல்லூர்வயின் தந்ததே

Of the virtuous Vishnu’s avatars
the middle one called Ramavatar,
as faultess verse filled epic
was written in Sadayan’s Vennai Nallur.
Kamban’s patron was Sadayappan Vallal of Thiru Vennai Nallur village. Kamban states that this epic was written by him in his Patron’s village. Of Vishnu’s avatars, Rama comes between Parasurama and Balarama. Hence Kamban says the middle one (இடை நிகழ்ந்த).
