- Amaruliappa Perumal Temple
ancient Vaishnavate kshetra is one among the 108 Divya Desams dedicated to Sri
Mahavishnu. And the Moolavar is very popular as Amaruliappa Perumal due to
bounteous blessings. The sthalapurana embodies the glory of this holy place
citing the evidence of Vuparichara emperor. According to legend the emperor
incurred the wrath of Maharishis on one occasion by his thoughtless action. In
consequence, his aerial chariot crashed down on this spot by their potent curse.
And when he wailed piteously praying for the grace of the Lord, I3hagavan
hurried to this spot and rowed him across the ocean of grief. This Lord also
blessed Cauvery river and Dharmadevata on certain occasions, when they sought
his presence to tiding over their difficulties. The Mulavirat is facing east and
gives darsan in sitting posture. The garbhagriha is adorned with Garuda Vintana.
The Mother is called Se ngamalavalli. Regular agamic puja is offered with due
devotion and periodical festivals are celebrated with pomp and splendour.
Tirumangai Alwar worshipped with his pasuramala which is still emitting sweet
lies near Mayuvaram railway station and accessible even from Kuttalam in the
Kumbhakonam taluq of Tanjore district of Tamil Nadu.
