Skandar Andati, Verse 23 reads like this:

Dinakara akkara, - He broke the teeth and plucked the eyes, of
                Dinakaran, the Sun, he is Siva, and you are his Teacher,
Dinakara akkara - You are the substance of Shadakshra, the
                six lettered sun-like mantra Saravanabhava, and you stay
                in Tiruchendur,
Dinakara akkara - You are praised by Vedas and dinakara akkara,
                and live in serpent (which swallowed the Sun) like mountain
                of Tiruchengode and you are having the sunlike Spear,
Dinakara akkara - You saved the sun-like city of Amaravati and the
                 devas and Indra, lest the demons would have destroyed them!
