Tirusenkundrur - Imaiyavarappan Ambalam

This Vaishnava kshetra of immense prominence recalls to memory the disastrous over-credulousness of Lord Maheswar, who was about to be converted into ashes, if the timely succor was not extended by Sri Mahavishnu. The enormously popular episode of granting the boon by Lord Siva to converting into ashes anything to Bhasmasura - the ash demon was enacted here and a temple for Mahavishnu was built later to perpetuate the propriety of His attribute - Aapadbhandava - Protector of kinsman in times of insurmountable peril. The Lord assuming the tantalizing beauteous form of Jaganmohini descended at this spot and by his inimitable craftiness put an end to the ingrate Bhasinasura by his own boon. This temple is an ancient one built in the Kerala architectural style and the garbhagriha is adorned with Jagatjyoti Vimana. The icon of the Lord is facing west and gives darsan with his consort Sengamalavalli Natchiar. There are two Pushkarinis - Sankha thirtha, Tirusittar thirtha supplying water to the visitors for bathing and to the temple for holy abhisheka purposes. Regular worship is offered according to Vaishnava sampradaya and the annual festivals are celebrated with great eclat. This Chera desa Vaishnava kshetra is popular as Malai Nadu Tirupati. Among the Alwars, Nammalwar offered his worship with immortal flowery verses of inexplicable sweetness. This kshetra is known by other names such as Tiruchitravar and Tiruchenganur.

It is 40 km off Kotrakaram and a mile off Chenganur, a famous temple town of Kerala, accessible by bus or auto etc.
