AZHAGAR KOIL

There is a shrine in the western portion of the prakaram,dedicated to Yoganarasimha who also gives darsan in GhoraSwarupam. He is known as Jwala Narasimhar. To cool him down, abhishekam is done to the deity
everyday with curd, milk, etc. A big opening is provided in the ceiling just above his head, through which his anger and fury are radiated out. There are also shrines dedicated to Parthasarathy, Manduka Maharshi, Ashtabhuja Krishna,Nartana  Krishna, Saraswati, the Alwars, Ramanuja and many deities of lesser importance.

The temple is said to be guarded perpetually by a local Tamil deity known as Karuppanna -swami, whose other names are Peria Karuppan, Siria Karuppan,Mandai Karuppan, Toti Karuppan,Kummatti Karuppan, Pazhaya Karuppan, etc. He is also known as Krishna Putran.
