    You had mentioned about the elephant headed gaja-vaktra. Is there
any mention about howVishvaksEnar looks ? When we were young, we used to

call him piLLaiyAr and our elders quickly corrected it as VishvaksEnar.
Any thoughts on this?

Most of the old temples have either garudAzhvAr sannidhi or siRiya
thiruvadi sannidhi right in the front. I guess this could be a part of
the Agama.
Likewise, is there any refernce to sastric VishvaksEna ArAdhanai?
