MANNARGUDI

The Moolasthanam deity is known as Vasudevar and is installed with Sridevi and Bhudevi on either side. Sri Rajagopala- swami is the processional deity with a commanding appearance standing in front of the cow, with Rukmini and Satyabhama. This idol is considered to be the most handsome and attractive among the images of Vishnu. There is another idol of Lord Krishna as a boy lying on the serpent Adisesha, with his right toe in the mouth, known as Santana Rajagopalan.

This image is made of bronze and
the workmanship is super-excellent. The worship of Santana Rajagopalan has got a special significance. The legend connected with it is that whoever holds Baby Krishna in his lap with the loving heart of a parent, is immediately blessed with a child. The historical evidence to show that a barren woman would beget a child is provided by the birth of a child to King Swarnasiga - many,son of King Rajasekhara, who was childless and was blessed with a child by worshipping this Baby Krishna.
