Lord Shiva

In the Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva is the Destroyer and the most important one in the Holy Trinity, the other two being Brahma the Creator and Vishnu the Protector. Lord Shiva has always fascinated his followers by his unique appearance: he has not two but three eyes, has ash smeared all over his body, has snakes coiled up around his head and arms, wears tiger and elephant skin, leads a wild life in the cremation grounds far removed from social pretenses, and is known for his proverbial anger.

Lord Vishnu

He has four arms and is male: The four arms indicate his all-powerful and all-pervasive nature. His physical existence is represented by the two arms in the front, while the two arms at the back represent his presence in the spiritual world. The Upanishad Gopal Uttartapani describes the four arms. Title has been given since some of these facts may be shocking for someone, soothing for devotees and interesting for others. Some of these facts may be known to someone but unknown to other.

Lord Brahma

In Hinduism, Lord Brahma is the first god of the Trinity (Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh). He is the creator of the universe. But, he is not worshipped as Lord Vishnu and Shiva. There is only one temple dedicated to him, which is the Pushkar temple of Rajasthan. And many temples are dedicated to Vishnu and Shiva. There is no corner of India where there are no temples of Vishnu and Shiva.

This sthalam is situated in Tirunelveli district, 3 miles away from Azhwar Thirunagari. Lodging facility (Choultry – Chathiram) is available. One of Azhwar’s Navatirupathi.

Sthlapuranam :
The Wealth (or) money will be stayed, permanently who has patience, complete tolerance and the mind to help others. These all the characters are found on Sriman Narayanan, our Emperumaan and along his heart, we can see, Lakshmi pirattiyaar.

Once, Duruvasa muni gave a pearl necklace, which was given to him by thirumagal (Lakshmi devi) to Indiran. He doesn’t accept it and gave a bad response to the Muni and likewise, Bhoomi pirattiyaars was also given the sapam. Then as the Sapa vimochan, he asked her to say Sriman Narayanan’s Atcharam (Name (or) Slogan) “Om Namho Narayanaya” – and along with the “Sriperai” (Lakshmi’s whole body) to do tapas against sriman Narayanan.

Lakshmi Piratti wanted bhoomi piratti to worship Sriman Narayanan along with her because of this only this was done. Now, as a sapa Vimochan, she worships Sripperai along with Sri Vishnu and this sthalam is called as “Thirupperai”.

When Bhoomi piratti was doing the tapas during Panguni month – Pournami, along the thamirabarani river, she found two fishes, which looks like “Magara Kundalam” (Ornament which is weared in the ears). After seeing those, she thought those two Kundalams has to be submitted to Sriman Narayana, she took them out and gave it to the Emperumaan and made him to wear those kundalams. Because of this the Emperumaan is named as “Magara Nedung – Kuzhi Kaathan” and along with him, Sri Magal – Lakshmi gives her the seva as “Kuzhi Kaadhu Valli thaayar”.
