KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN TAMILNADU
Perumpuliyur - Sundararaja Perumal Koil

Here is an ancient Vaishnava kshetra with a -fascinating tale that taught to the caste-conscious egoistical brahmins, the value of divinity embedded in god-men and the futility of class distinctions. It is dedicated to Sundaearaja Perumal and the moolavar is facing east, and reveals in sthanka posture. It is a well sculptured icon that wrings veneration at a single glance. The Mother is called Sundaravalli Natchiar and the temple built in the South Indian architectural style is quite grand and possesses all the component parts. All are vast in dimensions and specimens of fine craftsmanship. The temple built on the bank of river Cauvery claims an additional plus point for sacred bath.

The Brahmins of this town were famous for their proficiency in vedic lore and passed for authority on scriptural treatises, but were highly conceited that they looked down on others. They were humbled' by Tirumalisai Alwar, whose spiritual power made God followed him once like shadow. It appears, when a group of brahmins were reciting the vedic hymnsand chants, the great Alwar happened to pass that way by accident. The puffed up brahmins suddenly stopped their loud recitation, pressuring that the sacred lore would lose its sanctity if heard by a low class man. Sooner than the Alwar disappeared from their sight, they desired to start afresh, alas! they could not locate the place where they left and could not recall however much they tried. Their tapping on the brains, or looking upto sky for proper clue eluded their grip. Then one among them, attributing it to their folly prayed to that man for help. When prayed sincerely they got over the predicament. Thus the soul power of Tirumalisai Alwar established its supremacy and cut the hollowed brains to proper size and taught a fitting lesson. That happened here in this temple.

It lies on the Trichy-Tiruvaiyur bus route, accessible by four wheelers.
