Greatness Of Temple:

   Perumal grants a pleasant darshan to His devotees from the sanctum sanctorum with Mother Mahalakshmi on H.is lap. Perumal is the deity for planet Budha (Mercury) and Mother for Shukra-Venus, hence the temple is the remedial centre for those facing problems from these two planets. The place is known as Budha-Shukra planets remedial centre-Parihara Sthala. Those facing problems from Mercury pray to Perumal with Tulsi garlands and those from Venus perform archanas to Mother with kumkum. Devotees also worship Perumal before sending children to schools praying for their shining in education. Those facing problems in wedding proposals light ghee lamps on coconut shells placing it on rice spread on plantain leaves. As the temple was once attached to Lord Shiva, the Vilwa belonging to Him continues to be the sacred tree of the temple. Chakkarathazhwar graces in the front mandap with His 16 hands. Behind Him is Lord Yoga Narasimha with four hands holding the discus. Lord Shiva and Lord Brahmma are on both sides. Adisesha the divine serpent is above His head. This is a rare form of Lord Narasimha. Lord killed demon Hiranya at about sunset known as Pradosha time and was too furious. To restore the Lord to a pleasant mood, a drink made of dry ginger, jaggery, cardamom, water and lime juice is offered as nivedhana during the evening pujas. On the Swati star day devotees offer this to Lord Narasimha for the same purpose. Sri Anjali Anjaneya appears with a small Shivalinga on his head. This darshan is not available in other temples.


Temple History:
