Among the Pancha  Krishanaranya  Kshetras, Tirukkoilur Sri Trivikramaswami temple occupies a conspicuous place. It is dedicated to Sri Trivikrama - Ulagalantha Perumal, the fifth incarnation of Sri Mahavishnu, and as such is very popular and famous for Vaishnavates in particular and in theists in general. It is situated on the southern bank of Krishnabhadra in South Arcot District of Tamil Nadu. Pride of place goes to this divya kshetra for reasons more than one. 

It is the unique place, in which the Lord revealed Himself again in the selfsame form of Trivikrama at the instance of Mrikanda Maharshi. It is this place that claims the privilege of having one of the tallest temple towers, measuring 192 feet in height, among the towers of our Punya Bharat, ft is in this sacred place the reputed Vaishnavate minstrels - Poigai, Boodhath and Peey Alwars met and poured out their souls in sweet verses in praise of Srimannarayana, under extraordinary circumstances, started by Poigai Alwar, followed by Boodhath and then Peey Alwars that formed the integral part of the world renowned Nalayira Divya Prabhandam. It is in this holy place, Durga, in the role of custodian of the temple is receiving prayers first.
