Thirumanikoodam : Thirunangur Divyadesa Sthalapuranam Series



There are 11 Thirunangur divyadesams of which 7 sthalapuranams are narrated by  Sri U.Ve. Vedarajan swami .Angered at the insult meted to his wife Sati by her father Daksha ,Shiva performed Tandavam on the banks of ubhaya kaveri near Seerkazhi. So great was his fury that for every hair that fell a Rudran emerged. Scared the gods asked Perumal to save the situation. As soon as Shiva the foremost Vaishnava saw Perumal his anger abated . As requested by Shiva, Perumal took 11 forms which form the 11 Tirunangur divyadesams. Seven of them are under the custody of the trustees hailing from the illustrous Prathivadhi Bhayankaram Anna family. Ubha.Ve. Vedarajan swami has taken time off his busy schedule to tell us the sthala puranams of these seven nangur temples.

Thayar-Tirumaamagal nachiyar

Utsavar- Varadaraja Perumal

Pratyasham to Bhava form of Rudran.

Chandran had 27 wives but was partial to Rohini so he was cursed to wax and wane. In order to atone for this sin he took bath in this pushkarni and worshipped Varadaraja Perumal.Tirumanaiazhwar adresses this Perumal as one with Mahalakshmi on His Chest so there is no separate sannidhi for Thayar  in this temple. Perumal’s tirunakshatram is Thai Poosam.
