[[Note 2 (VMS, 1_111):
Kaṭaimuṭi: This is commonly believed to be the place now known as Kīḻaiyūr, which is five miles to the east of āṉanta tāṇṭavapuram railway station Tanjore Dt. But M.Raghava Ayyar thinks that this decade of verses is on tirucceṉṉampūṇti, a mile and a half east of Kōvilaṭi, Tanjore Dt. The inscriptions which belong to the 9th and 10th centuries mention the god as tirukkaṭaimuṭi makātēvār and the shrine as tirukkaṭaimuṭi'. There is another shrine by name tiruccaṭaimuṭi which is mentioned in Appar tēvāram where both the names are found in one and the same stanza. This Caṭaimuṭi is to the north of Kōvilaṭi (ref. Collection of essays, p.280-284, 2nd edition, march 1964)]]
