TIRUKKOILUR

HISTORICITY

Though the legendary accounts of the temple date back to the Satyayuga, inscriptional evidence fixes its construction, expansion and patronage to the Pallava kings first and Vijayanagara rulers later. The inscriptions preserved give authenticity to several aspects of its construction, like the name of patrons, and the nature of endowments made. The temple administration was passed on to Emperumanar Jeer in the fifties of sixteenth century. It was the Peria Jeer of Tirupathi, who magnanimously appointed one of his disciples Emperumanar by name to minister to the needs of the ever increasing influx of pilgrims. And since then it is being maintained by his successors with due devotional fervour. 

It is now under the aegis of Venerable Thiru Srinivasa Ramanuja Chariar, the 25th Jeer, and under his able and efficient Trusteeship, the temple has launched renovation programme, mainly concerning Towers. Philanthropists and theists are generously contributing their mighty mite to celebrating annual Brahmotsavams and festivals. It is now under the supervision of the H.R. & CE Administration of Tamil Nadu Govt. and with its timely guidance and munificent provisions; it is striving to keeping up its past glorious name and hoary, traditions with the observance of-routine pujas and periodical functions.
