Thirugnana Sambandar was a proficient Tamil composer of the 6th century. He is one among the three Shaivite
saints who are credited with the composition of Tevaram (sacred hymns), others being Thiru Navukkarasar
and Sundaramurthy Nayanar
. Each of his works explores various dimensions of the devotional experience. The song that was sung in praise of Bhavani Sangameshwar Temple
is a good example.
