A TEMPLE FOR RAMA AND LAKSHMANA 

The popular belief is that darshan of both Tirunavayi and Tiruvilwamala on one and the same day is very auspicious.  Since seeing the light of temple even from a distance is equal to seeing the deity, lights in the towers were prohibited.  The Lord ordained it that the real Bhakta should come physically to Tiruvilwamala and pray rather than adopt the short cut of viewing the lights from Tirunavayi.

The story goes that once the temple priests sleeping on the top storey of the gopuram lighted a lamp and some of them went to Tirunavayi to see if the lights could be really seen from there.  They did see the lamp and they showed it to others as well.   The very next day the gopuram was struck by lightning and thunder and was razed to the ground.  They have not been rebuilt since.
