The place is also hailed as Pullaranyam, Pullanai, Thiruvanai, Adhi Sethu, Dharbasayanam, Rathnaakara Kshetram, Nalasethu, Saranagati Kshetram and Pullangadu.


Temple History:

   72 Chatur Yugas ago (countless crores of years), three sages Pullavar, Kannavar and Kalavar came to this temple region, then covered densely with darba grass and merged themselves in deep penance. Pleased with their penance, Lord Vishnu appeared before them in the form of Arasa Maram. Though happy they were, the Sages sought the grace of Perumal in His original form, Perumal obliged in the form of Lord Adi Jagannatha. That is the place now called Tirupullani. A shrine for Mother Padmasani was built later. This is also the place where emperor Dasaratha learnt the Mantra for child boon and was blessed with Sri Rama and his brothers as his sons.


Special Features:

   Miracle Based: Tirupullani is one of the celebrated 108 Vaishnava temples. Sri Rama graces in a reclining form. The Bodhi Tree (Arasa Maram) dates back to centuries said to have been graced by the darshan of the Lord.
