   ALIMELU MANGAPURAM
SRI PADMAVATHI DEVI AALAYAM

This is a renowned TRIPUTI, where the triple aspects - kshetram, thirtham and daivam seem vying with one another for supremacy. It was the seat of sage Sukabrahma, who gave asylum to Mother Mahalakshmi, when came down to this region and later to Sri Maha Vishnu too during his worship of Lakshmi Devi with lotus flowers at the instance of aerial voice. As it lies on the bank of Swarnamukhi, more so on the fringe of padmasarovar, its sacrosanct position accelerated the progress of worship and turned it into prestigious thirtha kshetra. Variously known as Tiruchanoor, Sri Sukapuri, Tiruchchoginur, Vadirajapuram in legends and history, this august seat of Mother Padmavathi Devi, the highly sensitive and supremely self-willed yet compassionate boon-giver created a splendid record in mythology and made Sri Mahavishnu perform penance for 12 years to appeasing her just anger. 

This Temple is built in Dravidian architectural style with sturdy high prakaras and broad Mahadwara surmounting a tall multi-tired gopura. There are three holy shrines in its vast campus-Alagi , perumal, Varadaraja and Padmavathi, but each is independent and has all the essential parts.
