Sthalapuranam:

Perumal in the temple appears as if always ready to come to the rescue of His devotees with His Chakra-discuss.  King Ambarisha drowned in the worship of Lord, failed to strengthen his army.  He lost his kingdom too.  Not deterred by the loss, he continued his devotion to Lord only.  He was observing the Ekadasi fast one day with his habitual meditation.  He did not notice that Sage Durvas came to see him.  The sage thought that Ambarisha ignored him and cursed the king.  Ambarisha fell at the feet of Lord for protection.  Lord applied his discus on the sage which began to chase the sage.  Finally the sage surrendered to Lord and begged his pardon.
Ambarishan built a temple for Perumal in this place.  Hence, He is also praised as Ambarisha Varadhar.  Those praying to Perumal here are protected by Lord Himself directly guiding them in life. All the holy rivers joined in Cauvery to cleanse themselves of the sins left on them by peope.  Thus Cauvery had to bear the total sins of all.  She approached Lord Brahmma for solution who suggested that she pray to Perumal in this place for relief.  Thus Cauvery purified herself by the grace of Perumal in this place.

A parrot living in this temple complex used to pick a blackberry (Naval fruit) from a tree and place it at the feet of the Lord chanting Hari Hari.  One day, when it was bringing the fruit, a hunter shot it down, the bird fell chanting Hari Hari.  Hearing the parrot chanting the name of Lord, the hunter was scared and ran away from the place.  Lord Vishnu gave darshan to the parrot and reminded of its past birth as a scholar but a pedant and that it was cursed to be born a bird and that it remembered His name chanting it for ever.  Lord relieved the parrot of its curse.  The message of the story is that salvation is open to those placing themselves at the feet of Lord chanting His glorious name.

It is noteworthy that the sacred jack tree behind the sanctum sanctorum has a conch symbol as if naturally gown.  When the discus chased Sage Durvas, the conch had all the prominence here and this symbol is related to the story.  Worshipping this natural conch and the discus together ensures immense benefit to the devotee, it is strongly believed.
Of the Navagrahas-9 planets, this place is linked with Ketu importance.  Sri Sheektha (Sri Sukta) Homa is conducted in the temple with 108 lotus leaves on full moon days.
During His Varaha Avatar, Perumal went deep into earth.  The gap between the two feet of Perumal in the sanctum sanctorum is considered the centre point of the world.  Sage Nandaka and Devas came together (Koodi in Tamil) here to worship  Lord, the place came to be known as Koodalur.

Demon Hiranyaksha fought with Mother Earth and hid her under the world below-Padala Loka.  Lord rescued her back to her place with His Varaha Avatara. He split the earth for the purpose and brought back her at Sri Mushnam.  Remembering this event, Saint Tirumangai Azhwar praises this place as Pugunthan Oor (Lord entered into earth).  As Lord protected the world (Vaiyam) from the demon, He is praised as Vaiyam Katha Perumal.

Thirukokarnam – Sri Gokarneswara Temple

Name of the Temple

Sri Gokarneswara Temple

Period of origin

Before 9th Century

Name of deity

Moolavar: Gokarneswarar

Ambal: Bruhadmbal

Sthala Theertham: Mangala Theertham

Sthala Vriksham :Bakula

 Sthalapuranam:

Gokarnesvara Temple at Thirukonarnam is an exemplary portrayal of continuous tradition and culture of Pudukkottai from ancient time. Originally constructed as a cave temple during seventh century this temple has been patronized and extended by the rulers of later dynasties. As seen with many other old temples of Pudukkottai region, this temple is also a live temple and under worship at present time. The earliest inscription found in the cave temple is written in Grantha character of seventh-eighth century. As this is not a foundation inscription hence the cave temple must be in existence at that time and hence might be constructed in early seventh century. Though the pillar style and other features of the cave temple resemble with the Pallava cave temples however few scholars suggest that this would be a creation of the Pandya-s. Argument given to support this is that the Pallavas were not ruling over this part of land hence their monuments are rare to find. Though this might be true however vassals under Pallava-s were not very far from this land. Muttharaiya-s have constructed marvelous cave temples at Namakkal not very far from Pudukkottai. But as there is no foundation inscription hence it is hard to determine authorship of the cave temple. Where the country is Pandya, the style of construction is Pallava.

Nanacampantar, seventh century Nayanmar, has sung in praise of the Lord of Kokarnam. In Tevaram 3:337:4,Nanacampantar invokes the lord with epithet, Malaittalaivan, referring to the cave temple. Another Nayanmar,Navukkaracar, has compared the hill of Kokarnam with that of Kailasha. Though the hill is not very high however places of Shiva were usually compared to Kailasha as seen in many other temples of contemporary time such as Kailasanatha Temple at Kanchi and Kailasha Cave at Ellora. Later this comparison was done with the Meru mountain as seen in Brihadeeshvara Temple at Thanjavur. In Tevaram 6:263, Navukkaracargives description of the Lord where he holds a sword and a tanka in his hands. Ganga mounts the crest of the Lord. He is probably referring to Gangadhara bas-relief of the cave temple.
(Above statements about Nayanmar-s and Tevaram are disputed by few scholars hence further study is needed in this direction. Will update the article once I am done with that study.)

As per stahala-purana, Kamadhenu (celestial cow) is supposed to fetch waters of the Ganga in her two ears and showered one earful on the murti (main deity image) and one into the tank. This explains the name Gokarnam, Go for cow and Karnam for ears. Currently the erstwhile princes of Pudukkottai, of Tondaimanlineage, is the trustee of this temple. The temple would have come to Tondaimans after the fall ofVijayanagara and then Nayaka rulers of Tamilnadu. They patronized this temple and the Lord of Kokarnam isKula-devata (main deity) of Tondaiman kings.

Gokarnesvara Cave Temple is excavated on the southern slope of a low rising hill and faces east. This rectangular mandapa (hall) , 18 x18.5 feet, is supported on two pillars and two pilasters ofMahendra order (Square base and top with octagonal shaft in middle). A sanctum is sunk into the back wall and has a monolithic Shiva linga inside. Lateral side walls are ornamented with bas reliefs. Right side hasGanesha while left is adorned with Shiva as Gangadhara. There are now dvarpalas here which is a subject of curiosity.

Shiva is depicted as Gangadhara on left lateral wall of the cave mandapa. This is probably the only image ofGangadhara icon in whole of Pandya region. Shiva is shown standing in tribhanga posture. Shown with four hands, he holds an akshamala in his upper right hand while his left upper hand holds tresses of his hair. His lower hands are placed near his thighs. Ganga is shown descending down towards the head of the Lord holding her two hands in anjali mudra in upper right corner. Ganga is portrayed on right side of Shiva in Dharmaraja Ratha and Adi-Varaha Perumal temple at Mahabalipuram and Trichy Upper Cave but she is carved on left side of Shiva in Kailasanatha Temple at Kanchi. Thitukokarnam cave is probably the only cave where we have Ganesha as a stand-alone image and also inSapta-matrika panel. Stand alone image of Valampuri Ganesha (truck turned to right) is carved on the right lateral wall of the cave mandapa. He is shown with four hands and seated in padmasana posture. He carries his broken tusk in his left upper hand while ankusha (elephant goad) in upper right hand. A modaka (an Indian sweet) is held in his right lower hand and as well as in his trunk. He is shown wearing vastra-yajnopavita andkaranda-makuta.

On right side of the cave, on slopes of a boulder, are carved Sapta-matrikas accompanied with Veerabhadraand Ganesha.  Order of appearance of these seven mothers is not very strict and they have seen to be arranged in different orders at different shrines. Here these are accompanied with Veerbhadra at start andGanesha at the end. Veerbhadra is shown with four hands and seated in sukhasana posture. His upper two hands are lifted in posture of invoking something. Lower hands are kept near thighs. There are two chauris(fan) on either side of him however there are no chauri-bearers. He is followed by Brahmi who is also shown with four hands. Next to her is Mahesvari depicted with two hands only. She is followed by Vaishnavi depicted with two hands and a long kirita-makuta. She is followed by Kaumari wearing karanda-makuta. Next isIndrani and then Varahi. The last and seventh matrika is Chamunda who is shown holding a knife in one of her hands. She is also wearing a munda-mala. Ganesha is carved at the last as his regular position in sapta-matrika group.

A spacious maha-mandapa was added with an enclosure around this in the early Chola period. Two Devishrines, one for Brhadambal and one for Mangalanayaki, were added to the cave temple complex during the later Chola rule. V Latha suggests that this would have been done during the reign of Kuluttonga Chola I who had fascination of adding separate devi shrines to Shiva temples. The temple witnessed many extensions during the rule of Vijayanagara and Nayaka rule. A Nataraja shrine was added to mahamandapa during thisVijayanagara phase. A shrine for Bakulanesvara is also added near to Sapta-matrika frieze. This shrine perhaps came after the sthalavrksha (temple tree) Bakula. As per a legend this Bakula tree blossomed when women sprinkle at it mouthful of wine. This tradition would have come due to the fact that the temple was known to have some powers for granting children to couples. There was another enclosure constructed and the empty space between two enclosure was connected with pillared mandapas. Kili-mandapa andSukravara-mandapa are two pillared halls which are placed in this empty zone. Kili-mandapa is a twelve pillar hall which serves as a connecting link between Brhadambla, Bakulanesvara and Managalanayaki shrines.Sukravara-mandapa is a hexagonal structure supported on six pillars. This seems that this is a Tondaimanperiod extension as a portrait sculpture is identified with Sadasiva Brahmendra who was a saint of the time ofVijaya Raghunatha Tondaiman. A gopuram was erected to the east of Brhadambal shrine which is followed by a twenty pillar mandapa called as mangala-tirtha-mandapa. Mangala-tirtha-mandapa was constructed near the temple tank hence its purpose would be for assembly during ablution and bath ceremonies.

On south of Brahdambal shrine a raya-gopuram was constructed accompanied with two mandapas, Kalyana-mandapa and Unjal-mandapa. Kalyana-mandapa is a twenty pillar hall having many portrait sculptures likeRati, Rama, Kamadeva and few donord. Unjal-mandapa is a eighteen pillar hall which might be used after the marriage ceremony of Shiva and Parvati in Kalyana-mandapa for couples to sit in a swing. One moremandapa, Anuppa-mandapa, was constructed to the south of raya-gopuram. Anuppa-mandapa is supported on fourteen pillars, seven in two rows. This hall corridor leads into the temple complex from outside. The ceiling is famous for Vijayanagara time painting depicting stories from Ramayana.

All major later extension were centered around the Brhadambal shrine which suggests that the cave temple was overshadowed with the goddess cult. There were five cars associated with the temple, four still surviving. This shows that the temple held an important place in olden days and processions would have been performed on a grand scale.

Most of the inscriptions found in the temple are from the time of the Cholas. All are donative inscriptions which either talk about certain grant or donation for lamps such as that of Rajakesarivarman Chola, Kopparakesarivarman. Mention of celebrating tiruvuttiram festival in the month of Pankuni during the reign of Kulottunga Chola is found in one inscription. An inscription in the reign of Rajaraja of later Cholaperiod talks about a gift of nontavilakk (eternal lamp) to the brahmanas of the temple.

On the east face of the 2nd pillar in front of the rock-cut shrine. This Chola inscription is built in at end. It mentions God Sri Gokaranattu-Madeva in Tiruvelppur, a devadana in Kavira-nadu.

Pandya inscriptions also talk about various grants and endowments made to the temple. An inscription from the reign of Maran Sadaiyan talks about nontavilakku gifted by one Nakkancetti of some trading community.Konerimaikondan, Kulasekhara Pandya made endowments for festivals Pallavan-canti, Pallavan-tirunal,Vaikaci-tirunal and for procession in Cittirai. Maravarman Sundara Pandya inscription talks about tax free land donated to the temple.

Inscriptions during Vijayanagara regime are from the time of Viranna Udaiyar and Viruppanna (Kampana) Udaiyar. Kampana donated lands as tirunamakkani. It is stated that the gifts were inscribed and give,kalvettik kutukkaiyil.

Vilamar – Sri Patanjali Manoharar Temple

Name of the Temple

Sri Patanjali Manoharar Temple

Name of deity

Moolavar: Patanjali Manoharar

Ambal: Madhura Bhashini

Sthala Theertham: Agni Theertham

Sthala Virksham: Vilvam

Devaram: Ganasampanthar

Sthalapuranam:

Here lord Shiva is facing east and the goddess Madhurabhashini, facing south.It is believed that lord Shiva was worshipped by Saint Patanjali said to be an incarnation of Adi Shesha, depicted here as snake body with human head and Saint Vygradhar, as tiger body with human head. The worship of Shiva by these two saints has been inscribed on the southern wall of the temple.Southern wall of the temple has an Idol of Dakshina Murty and Ganapathi at the South west corner. Western wall of the temple has an Idol of Narayana and a small shrine for goddess Lakshmi is located in front of Narayana idol.The important feature of this temple is Idadhu paada darshanam, which is viewing the left foot of lord Shiva. When in Ardhanarishwara form (half Shiva and remaining half Devi), the left half of lord is Devi and hence the viewing of left foot is essentially the foot of Devi herself. This special viewing of the foot is on Thiruvadirai, which is the Nakshatra or the Star on which day Lord Shiva and Devi merged to become Ardhanarishwara. According English calendar, it falls somewhere between mid December to first week of January.

Sri Vaikuntam – (Nava Tirupathi) Kallappiraan perumal

Name of the Temple

Sri Kallappiraan perumal Temple

Period of origin

 Before 2000 years

Name of deity

Moolavar :  Vaikuntanathan

Thayar: Vaikuntanayaki, Bhudevi

 Pushkarani: Thamiraparani, Bhrigu thirtham

Vimanam:

Mangalaashaasanam: Nammalvar

Sthalapuranam:

The Prime Deity Lord Vaikuntanathan faces east in standing posture, with Adisesha serving as an umbrella – an unusual presentation as he is always the bed to the Lord Who comfortably lies down on him. The Lord’s Consorts, Vaikuntanayaki and Choranathanayaki dwell in different shrines in the outer praakaram of the sanctum sanctorum. This is quite a big temple and we have to cross several ‘mandapams’ to reach the sanctum. In the ardha mandapam, Sri Kallappiran carrying a mace stands majestically on a golden couch, with his lovely Consorts, Sridevi and Bhudevi, on either side. He is the Lord of Procession. Next to the ardha mandapam is the sanctum sanctorum.

Two legends are associated with this temple. Once an asura by the name Somakan appropriated Lord Brahma’s Creation-secret and Lord Vishnu retrieved it from the demon. Since the Lord came direct from His abode Vaikuntam and agreed to remain here, this place came to be known as Srivaikuntam. Later, Kaaladhushakan, a robber, conducted his robbery after worshipping Vaikuntanathan, and surrendered to Him, half of what he had plundered. He was a Robinhood of those days, looted the rich and helped the poor. Once his men, while engaged in ransacking the palace were caught by the King’s soldiers. They had to identify their leader; when Kaladhushakan came to know about it, he prayed to the Lord of Srivaikuntam, to save him. The Lord appeared before the King as Kaaladhushakan, revealed Himself to the King and counseled him to protect dharma. Having had this Beatific Vision, the King requested the Lord to remain in this place as ‘Kallappiraan’.

A marvelous aspect of this temple is that twice a year, the Sun-god comes direct to worship the Lord! The golden rays of the Sun cross the temple portals, reach the sanctum and bathe the Lord with their splendid light on the sixth day of the Tamil months, Chithrai and Aippasi. Of all the Vishnu temples, such a Sun-worship happens only in Srivaikuntam. The construction of the temple portals is thus a brilliant engineering feat.

Route :

 SriVaikuntam is about 30 kms from Tirunelveli on the Tiruchendur road. Buses ply every 10 minutes on this route from Tirunelveli’s new bus stand. Also, there are daily local trains on the Tirunelveli-Tiruchendur route, though less frequent.

Vimanam: Anantha Sathya Varthaka Vimaanam

Sthalapuranam:

King Swetakethu belonged to Ikshvagu dynasty which Lord Sri Rama chose for His incarnation.  He loved every one and was a living example of honesty and integrity.  He and his wife had a passion to visit Vaikunda to have the darshan of Lord Vishnu.  As a king, he completed all his political duties and set ready for penance with his queen Damayanthi.  They prepared fire around them, stood looking at the Sun and began a severe penance. Days passed.  They shed their mortal coil and reached Vaikundam but could not find their Vaikunda Vasan.  They stood sad.  Maharshi came there.  Swetaketu and Damayanthi fell at his feet and enquired him why they could not get the darshan of Lord.   Narada replied that though they performed severe penance but failed to perform even small Homas and charities.  That failure was the cause of this failure.  The remedy was that they had to worship Lord Iravadeswarar on the banks of Cauvery on Earth and appeal to Him, who would help them to have Vaikunda darshan.
Both prayed to Lord Iravadeswarar and begged his help for Perumal darshan.  Lord Iravadeswarar appeared before them and said that He too was waiting for Perumal darshan and suggested that they could join him in penance.  Meantime, Sage Udanga Maharshi also joined the in the penance.  Thus four performed penance together.  When Lord Vishnu appeared before them with Mothers Sridevi and Bhoodevi, Lord Iravadeswarar prayed that the place where the darshan was granted should be honoured as Vaikunda Vinnagaram and that He be worshipped as Vaikunda Nathar.  Thus, Perumal came here as Lord Vaikunda Vasan to this place with Mother praised as Vaikundhavalli.
