Kadinagar - Neelamega Perumal Mandir
much-hallowed Vaishnava kshetra lies at the confluence of Vishnu Ganga with
Bhagirathi. And at this place alone this holy river is christened as Ganga.
Moreover, here meet the other rivers Alakananda, Saraswathi and Bhagirathi,
making this into a holy confluence going by the name of Triveni Sangama. The
mere fact of merging these sacred rivers has
invested the place with a unique divinity igniting irresistible craze for
pilgrimage. Normally. pilgrims to the North, visit this invariably, after
completing darsan at Haiidwar and Rishikesh. And Rishikesh is the starting
point for these good old Himalayan kshetras like Kedarnath, Badarinath, Gangotri
etc. Four wheelers run by State Government and Private Organizations are
aplenty, so desiring yatris avail them at all seasons. The archamurti's icon in
standing posture faces cast and is sculptured superbly. The floral decoration
interspersed with gold jewels serves a feast to the eves and lifts the souls.
The Goddess is called Nndarikavalh and as it is on the bank of Pavana Ganga, no
Pushkarini is needed for separate bath. The garbha griha is adorned with Mangala
Vimana. Perialwar and Tirumangai Alwar offered Mangalasasana to lord expressing
their realisation of the glory of the Lord and his kshetra. Regular worship is
offered and periodical festivals are celebrated with due fervour. Bharadwaja
Maharishi enjoyed the vision of the lord here.
