TIRUKKOILUR

Thereupon, he went to Himalayas and did penance for centuries, but to no effect. Chancing to know the intention of the sage and his failure, Narada counseled him to meditate on Brahma for solution. Accordingly, sitting under water, he continued his tapas, Brahma appearing before directed him to prolong it in Krishnaranya - a sacred place dear to Srimannarayana to fulfilling his ardent wish. Reaching this place and satisfied with its sublimity, he resumed his deergha tapas and it went on for centuries. Pleased, Lord Sri Maha Vishnu gave darsan as desired. Elated at his fuffilment, the Maharshi solicited HIM to emancipate the pious, when offer prayers at this place to that apurvarupa; and it was granted.

That accounts for the Trivikrama image here raising the right leg above the ground, indicating the measuring of the sky with His foot after measuring the earth first. The Presiding Deity is seen worshipped by Brahma on the right side, and on the left by Mrikanda Maharshi,Namachu, Garuda, Ananta, Vishaksvena, and a host of other celebrated saint poets. Another fascinating feature of the Moolavar is, his holding the divine conch. in His right hand, normally intended for Sudarsana Chakra, It is said that Mahavishnu in ecstatic joy of pushing down the demon-king, blew His conch lustily proclaiming to the world the necessity of His avatar and also heralding to men and gods that they would enjoy bliss on offering genuine prayers here.
