Tirusirivaramangai - Vanamamalai Perumal Temple

This is one among the ashta swayamvyakta kshetras lying on the banks of Tamraparani river. It is familiar as Vanamamalai kshetra and alsd nick named Totadri. Several divinities such as Devendra, Brahma, Romasa Maharishi, Brighu Maharshi and Markandeya visited and prayed to this Lord soulfully and were blessed magnificently. The image of archamurti Vanamamalai Perumal is in sitting posture and facing east.

He is attended by Sridevi, Bhudevi, Niladevi along with Garuda and Senai Mudaliar. Icons of Moon-God and Sun-God too are also adorning the garbhagriha, in addition to two charming figures with Chamaras in their hands. The moment the devotees enter the sannidhi, they feel enraptured by the huge assemblage of the highest divinities and their enchanting features and gestures. The temple is a very big one, built in strict accordance with Silpa sastra and the garbha griha is adorned with Nandavarthana Vimana. The temple has two tanks called Senthamarai pushkarini and Nanda pushkarini. As it is a famous kshetra, many religious institutions are striving for the propogation of bhakti cult. Among them Vanamamalai Jeer Mutt deserves reverent mention. Nammalwar visited and eulogized the glory of the Presiding deity with his Pasuramala. Daily Agamic puja is offered and the annual festivals are conducted with great pomp and splendour. The deity is given tailabhishek everyday as a curative measure due to the fact that when the image was lifted from hidden place, some bruises made on the body of the Lord. Hence regular gingely oil bath. This kshetra is popularly known by another names like Nankuneri or Vanamamalai. On account of the presence of Tayar Varamangai, this is very familiar as Varamangai kshetra. It commands lodging and boarding facilities.

It is a rail head and it can be reached from Tirunelveli by bus and hence enjoys all conveyance facilities.
