KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN TAMILNADU

Veeranarayanapuram - Kaatumannar Temple

This ancient Vaishnava kshetra has given birth to two illustrious Acharyas - Nadamuni and Yamunacharya, who held aloft the Vaishnava banner very high and became responsible for enthroning Bhakti cult, encountering interminable conflicts perpetrated by Saivate rulers. But for them Vaishnavism would not have reached the four corners of India, and enjoyed pre-eminent position as it is today. Here the archamurti is called Kaattumannar and demonstrated his sports in a spectacular way. The inspiration derived from this Moolavar was' so infinite that these twin Acharyas entered the arena and achieved the impossible, despite several odds threatened them throughout. And retrieved the lost ground in the end. All but due to the Lord's might and the name Veeranarayana is appropriate to the letter, says the priest. It is built in Dravidian architectural style and contains all in modest proportions. Agamic worship is offered and illustrious bhaktas visited and raised its glory by endowments etc,

It lies 25 km off Chidambaram, the pilgrim centre of Tamilnadu, accessible by bus.
