TIRUVALLUR

[an error occurred while processing this directive]
Introduction

Tiruvallur is the Headquarters of a Taluk in Chingleput District in Madras State. There is a Railway Station on the Madras - Arkonam line of the Southern Railway at a distance of 20 miles to the west of Madras City. The place is glorified by the location of a famous Vaishnavite temple dedicated to Lord Veeraraghava. The Goddess is known as Kanakavalli or Vasumati.

The legend connected with the origin of this temple shows that once upon a time, in Krita Yuga, a sage by name Purupunyar lived with his wife Satyavathi in Badarikashram. They had no children. Purupanyar performed a Sali Yajna. (Putrakameshti Yaga) with great fervor and devotion. The Sage offered 1000 Ahutis (oblations of ghee to the sacrificial fire after chanting the mantra each time) every day, for one full year. 'On the last day, when Purnahuti (the final offering) was performed, Lord Narayana was pleased
with the austerity of the ritualistic observances of the Sage, and appeared in the sacrificial fire in a blissful mood to offer boons. The Sage prayed for a noble son.
