Aiyadigal Kadavarkon Nayanar, counted as 46th among 63 Nayanars, composed Kshetra Thiruvenba. Kshetram means place, area. To be precise, it was composed by him when he visited different sacred places where temples of Shiva were situated. This poem said to be very big, but among them only 24 are surviving. Using this 24, Shekkizhar composed his life history in Periya Puranam. This Kshetra Thiruvenba is a part of 11th Thirumurai among other hymns sung by Karaikal Ammaiyar, Nambiyandar Nambi, etc.
