Tirupullani - Kalyana Jagannatha Perumal Temple

Its legendary name is Dharbhasayana, and according to sthalapurana Sri Rama took rest here lying on Dharbha during the building of bridge across the sea to reach Lanka for releasing Sita, from the captivity of Ravana, the notorious demon abductor. The sea - Bay of Bengal lies at only 5 km off and a bath in it rids one of all sins, says the priest with face beaming and in loud voice. It is called Adisethu samudra snana and Puranas have eulogised it with several examples. The temple is vast in dimensions and with its imposing towers beckons the pilgrims by being visible for miles afar. It has three holy thirthas going by the names of Hema thirtha, Chakra thirtha and Aswartha thirtha. The garbhagriha is adorned with Kalyana, Vimana. The Goddess is called Kalyanavalli Tayar. It is here Sri Rama with the local name Kalyana Jagannatha Perumal bestowed boons on the Samudraraja, Pullaranya Maharshi and Aswarthanarayana. The icon of Moolavar is in standing posture and facing east. The sthala vriksha is Aswartha vriksha and there lie many serpent images deemed very very potent and bless the sevarthis with child birth without fail. Among the many sculptural pieces the superbly sculptured images of Vibeshaqa and Samudraraja along with celestials worshipping the Lord lying on Dharbhasayana are quite enchanting ,and raise the hands of the visitors at the first sight itself. The holy kshetra is commanding an unending streams of pilgrims throughout the year. Daily puja is offered with great devotional fervor and the periodical festivals lure huge crowds. Tirumangai Alwar offered Mangalasasan to the deity.

It lies 10 km off the capital of the Rajas of Ramanathapuram, accessible by four wheelers.
