Kizhi on Sri Andal's left shoulder are as follows

SIGNIFICANCE:It is said that Sri Suka Brahma
Rishi went as a 'thoodu' (messenger) to Sri
Rangamannar being assinged a task by Sri Andal.
           After the successful completion of
the mission ,Sri Andal told Suka Brahma Rishi
that he could ask for any boon from Her.Sri
Suka Brahma Rishi replied that in the form of
a parrot he would always like to be beside Sri
Andal.

KIZHI KAIMKARYAM AND SAMARPANAM TO SRI ANDAL
AT SRIVILLIPUTTUR.
Everyday one kizhi(parrot) is prepared and offered ,which adorns the Left Shoulder of
Sri Andal at Srivilliputtur.This is currently
