TIRUKKOILUR

THE THIRTHAMS

As the water of Krishnabhadra, now goes by the name Pennar said to have flowed down from the Kamandal of Brahma, while washing the feet of Lord Trivikrama, they are held very very holy. Several accounts narrate that they are more sacred than the waters of the Ganges, or Triveni, for the main reason that they came down from the Kamandal of Brahma, and moreover trickled down from the lotus feet of Bhagawan Trivikrama.

They cure skin disease, besides purging off the sins accrued from birth. Devout Hindus choose this place for offering pindas to their manes and arranging samaradhanas on large scale. Feeding made on the sacred banks has special merits and certain months and days are very efficacious. It is said that a touch of the water, or a sprinkle confers merits. They are scores of Thirthas in and around the temple campus imbued with spiritual powers and each has an awe- inspiring tale to narrate. Illustrious persons bathed in them and sipped several times to be relieved of the gross and dross sticking on their bodies, due to living amidst sinful persons and acquiring certain objectionable traits by either forceful cohabitation or unavoidable association with them.

Several celebrated Maharshis and celestial denizens were lifted by the infinite compassion of Sri Trivikram on this land. Each thirtha has a story of its own and attracts the pious on certain days auspicious, for several purposes like offering pinds, feeding the poor, observing vratas and celebrating festivals. And they are not far from the main shrine.
