Tirumogoor - Kalamegha Perumal Temple

This is yet another renowned Vaishnava kshetra lying near Madurai, renowned as Saiva thirtha kshetra par excellence. Its pouranic glory dates back to the time of Ksheerasagaramadana, when Srimannarayana metamorphosed himself into an enchanting belle of unparalleled glamour that beguiled the witless danavas into drinking in the hypnotic charms of Jaganmohini with their eyes instead of nectar, for which they toiled hard and long. The Moolavar is called Kalamegha Perumal and is abiding in this kshetra at the earnest entreaty of the devas, since that Mahatkarya. On account of this, the sacroscant place is called Mohanputa or Maigoor signifying that dramatic episode. This Lord emancipated Brahma, Devendra and Rudra, and is known for his abundant Vatsalya and easily accessible disposition. Among the noted Alwars, Nammalwar and Tirumangai Alwar composed Mangalasasanams and expressed their appreciation of the Lord's inimitable act that made devas immortal and free from the atrocities of their own cousins - danavas. The Lord's archamurti sculptured in captivating form detains the visitors and lifts their hands unknown to themselves. The icon of Meghavalli Natchiar is quite tantalizing due to excellent craftsmanship. It is built in Dravidian style of architectural design and is majestic in all its component parts. The Ketaka vimana on the garbhagriha is worth-seeing. Agamic worship is offered with great devotional fervor and the annual car festival celebrated in Vaisakha lures huge crowds making this kshetra into Bhuloka Vaikunta.

It is 10 km off Madurai, the famous temple city of Tamilnadu, and accessible by four wheelers.
