The temple witnessed a major expansion during the rule of the Vijayanagar kings like Sadasiva Raya, Sriranga Raya and Venkatapati Raya II (16th Century). Many sub-shrines and pillared pavilions (mandapas) like the Tiruvaimozhi Mandapa were added.
Our glories float between the earth and heaven Like clouds which seem pavilions of the sun.edward bulwer-lytton
And the Naiad-like lily of the vale, Whom youth makes so fair and passion so pale, That the light of its tremulous bells is seen, Through their pavilions of tender green.Percy Bysshe Shelley
