Tiruarimeya Vinnagaram - Kudamadukutha Perumal Temple

This ancient Vaishnava kshetra is one among the six famous shrines lying in the vicinity of Sirkali. Padma Purana embodies a good deal of account of the glory of this Divya Desam, forming an integral part of Palasavana. Agasthya Mzharshi grows exuberant in eulogising the glory of this kshetra, saying that even gods too could not guage its holiness in its entirety. Hence it is called Ameya Devanagacam and the Tamil equivalent being Arimeya Vinnagaram. The place is also called Kodamadum Koothan Koil. Hence the moolavar is called Kodamadu Koothar. He is in sitting posture. With a view of winning the wager. Kadruva asked her children to hold on to the tail of the horse to making it appear black. They obeyed. Vinata was defeated and became slave to Kadruva. To get herself released, Amrutha must be got from Indraloka kept under strict vigilance of India. Garuda succeeded in getting the pot - Kudam under certain conditions that the pot would be taken back by gods before it was drunk by Kadruva. Kadruva seeing the pot, was satisfied but wanted to drink it after taking bath. Then a powerful demon Daityan - a mayavi took the pot stealthily. To see that the nectar should not fall into the hands of unrighteous people, Lord Vishnu appeared on the scene and released an arrow at the demon. T1re demon hit by the arrow let fall the pot. The nectar fell in Palasavanam and formed into a tank, and that is called Amrutha Pushkarini. Lord consumed the whole contents and danced in great ecstasy in token of joy as it did not fall into the hands of wrong persons. It is represented by the icon of the Lord in sitting posture with one foot on the pot. He is aptly called Kudamadu Koothan - dancer with pot under foot. Thirumangai Alwar sang in praise of the Lord. As it is one of the 108 Divya Desams its pull is on increase with passage of time.

It lies 5 km off Sirkazhi, a famous temple town in Tamilnadu, accessible by four wheelers.
