  2. Senguttuvan
  3. Irumporai

Solution

The correct option is A Silapathikaram
Ilango Adigal composed an epic called Silapathikaram, which talks about a woman named Kannagi. Chera Senguttuvan’s wife was so mesmerised by this character that she wanted to deify her as a goddess. To fulfill her wish, the king went on a military expedition to the Himalayas to get a stone to make the idol of Kannagi. She was then worshipped as Goddess Pattini. This resulted in the introduction of the Pattini cult.
