Tirukkoelur - Vaithamanidhi Perumal Temple

The sthalapurana of this Divya Desam embodies several anecdotes that have heightened the glory of this kshetra to unimaginable proportions. Among them, first is the celebrated Madhura Kavi Alwar was born here, and he is fittingly honoured with a separate sannidhi in the temple itself. Secondly, it is believed that the inestimably invaluable Navanidhis are concealed here and none knows their exact location even today. Next in importance is that Kubera and Madhurakavi were blessed with the vision of the Lord after offering soulful prayers. Finally, Kubera was blamed for having given false information regarding the Navanidhis hidden here. Darsan is made available to certain castes only; and that is another peculiar tradition observed here. With such awe-some facts, this kshetra has been luring a steady stream of devotees for over centuries now. The Moolavar - Vaithamanidhi Perumal gives darsan, reclining on Adisesha and facing east. The Goddess is called Koloorvalli Tayar. The Vimana is called Srikara and the thirtha, Kubera. Nammalwar adorned the Lord with his pasuramala. Daily worship is offered regularly with due devotional fervor. Annual festivals are celebrated with great fanfare.

It lies near Alwar Tirunagar railway station and can be reached by walk.
