About the temple:

Located about 35 km North East of Srirangapatnam on the banks of the Cauvery in the Pandavapura Taluk-Mandya District of Karnataka at the foot of the Yadava Giri is one of the most sacred and historical Vaishnavite temples – the Thiru Narayana Perumal Koil in ThiruNarayanapuram (now Melkote), one that dates back to the Kritha Yugam. Brahma’s sons Sanatkumaras brought their father’s pooja deity ‘Lord Narayana’ and installed the vigraham at Melkote.

An interesting feature at the Thiru Narayanan temple is that there is a separate sannidhi for the Utsava deity, ‘Selva Pillai’ (Sampath Kumaran) not seen anywhere else. Only one day in the year, are both Moolavar and Utsavar deities seen together at this temple to celebrate the home coming of Selva Pillai Sampath Kumaran.

The following is a Video Upanyasam about Ethiraja Sampath Kumaran:
