Thirucherai Sri Saranatha Perumal Temple Brahmotsavam: Thiruther (Thai Poosam Speical)



Located about 3 km South of Nachiyar Thirukkoil (about 15km off Kumbakonam) is the Saranaathan Temple in Thirucherai. This is part of the Krishnaaranya Kshetram and is between Nachiyaar Thirukkoil and ThiruKannamangai Divya Desams. Brahmma who wanted to save the Vedas tried to preserve its contents in a mud pot. Every time, he tried making the pot, it broke down. He looked up to Perumal for solution and was asked to go Thirucherai to collect the sand for the making of the pot. Detailed sthala puranam about Thirucherai is presented in this link: Thirucherai Saranathan – Divyadesa Vaibhavam
