. Today is the day of marriage. Everyone was happy on that day. Alagar started his journey from Alagar kovil to Madurai. Mennakshi Amman temple was situated after the banks of river Vaigai. Alagar reached Madurai without any problem. Now he was shocked by watching the flood at river Vaigai. There was only few hours left to attend his sister marriage. Alagar was unable to cross the river. He came to know that the marriage function was over. Then he roamed across the Vaigai river. He stayed that night in Vandiyoor and returned to Alagar kovil in thief costume (Kallagar).
