Thirunalloor Perumanam temple - Tamil Nadu, the place where Sambanthar along with 3 other nayanmars experienced Spontaneous Human Combustion SHC due to kundalini, as depicted in the image by the burning shiva lingam.

With the exception of Manickavasagar, who reached a very high state of meditation called the rainbow body, all the other nayanmars as far as history has reveiled left their bodies in normal samadhi state and some experienced the above mentioned SHC due to kundalini.

Below you will find the hand drawn images of the 64 nayanmars by Chidambara swamigal himself, so these are the closest to the real image of the nayanmars as you can get.
