Thirumangai Azhwar Thirunakshatram was grandly celebrated at Sri Saranatha Perumal Temple, Thirucherai Divyadesam. Kathigai Madham Karthigai Nakshatram is the Avathara Thirunakshatram of Thirumangai Azhwar. On November 25th 2015, Thirumangai Azhwar had alangaram and gave beautiful dharshan to the devotees. Many Bakthas participated and received the blessings of Thirumangai Azhwar. Located about 3 kms South of Naachiyar Temple(about 15kms off Kumbakonam) is the Saaranaathan temple in ThiruCherai. This is part of the Krishnaaranya Kshetram and is between Naachiyaar koil and ThiruKannamangai Divya Desam. 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 Vishnu for solution and was asked to go Thiru Cherai to collect the sand for the making of the pot.
