TIRUVANGAD PERUMAL TEMPLE

 

THE TEMPLE

This sacred shrine is very extensive and occupies about six acres of land. It has a massive prakara and within it lie three shrines along with many minishrines and mandapas. In the vast courtyard outside the Srikoil there is a minishrines for Hanuman, called appropriately the junior assistant of Lord Hari, since Garuda is accorded the honorific title of senior personal assistant for remaining with Sri Mahavishnu always. 

The shrines of Subrahmanya and Ganapathi are lying to the South of Srikoil. Another deity that wrings veneration here is the Porkali Bhagawati lying in the wooden cage fur a strange reason.  It appears, she was seen restlessly moving about during the nights and was causing fear among the people visiting the temple, and people living nearby. 

The priests confined her to a wooden cage by a powerful mantra. Does this not divulge the potency of the mantra and the limitations of the deities? This Bhagawati was ardently worshipped by artists and royal families prior to this incident and went by the name of Vaageeswari - the patron deity of Learning; and was held in high esteem.
