CHOLANADU  DIVYA TIRUPATHIS

Tiruthetraimbalam - Senganmal Perumal Temlpe

Palasaranya chapter, an integral part of Padma Purana narrates a fascinating story of this holy kshetra under the heading Lakshmiranga Vaibhavam. It begins with Haranyasuran, an awful demon, who caused night mares to sages, angels, gods, besides the locals here in the dim past. Gods en masse visited Vaikunta and implored the Iord to rid them from his torture. Deeming the act most indispensable to justifying His role as the Protector of worlds, He hastened instantly to Kalakeyapuram, the demon's capital and ended his atrocious rule with His Sudarsan chakra in the war that lasted for long. And stayed here itself at the request of the afflicted. This caused worry to Sri Mahalakshmi and Adisesha too; for, the pangs of separation worried them most. They then descended and did penance for His come back and never to leave them forlorn without Him. Adisesha started penance in this Palasaranya bathing everyday in a holy tank nearby. God appeared and blessed him timely. This thirtham was named after him - Sesha thirtham then itself. And later this place was fittingly called Seshapuram Mahalakshmis penance too was rewarded with reunion and the Lord chose to remain in His Sayanasana on the Adiscsha wish Sridevi and Bhudevi at His feet. As the Mother's ardent wish of dwelling with him eternally was fulfilled, this place went by the name of Lakshmirangan also. The Chaturbhuja Moolavar is popular both ss Lakshmirangan and Senganmal Ranganathar. The temple faces east and is grandly built on the Dravidian architectural model with Veda Vimana beautifying the garbha griha. The Pushkarnis are called Surya pushkarini and Sesha thirtham, and devotees bathe in them before praying to this Karunaikasindhu. The Lord gave darsan to Ananthalwar, a pious devotee of great name, Tirumangai Alwar composed ten Pasurams eulogizing the glory of the Lord, and they occupy a covetable place in the Tirumozhi. Daily puja is going on and annual festivals are conducted with great zeal drawing huge crowds.


It lies about a mile off Thevanar Thogai, near Sirkazhi, a famous town in Tamilnadu, accessible by bus.
