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.

About the Temple & Location:
This sthalam is situated 4 miles away from Sengannoor in North in Kerala state. We can also reach this place by traveling by bus that starts from Thirucchenganoor to Kottayam. Since, this is a small village, there is no lodging facility, one has to stay in Thiruvalvaazh.


The temple was built by Nakulan – one among the Pancha Pandavas which is the specialty of this kshetaram.

Sthlapuranam :
It is said that this Divyadesam sthalam is built by Nakulan, one among the Pandavas.

Once, Narada got a Sabham from Brahma devan and he came to this sthalam and worshipped Paambanaiyappan. At that time, Sriman Narayanan came in front of him and explained the Naradeeya puranam, that explains about the Gnana explanation. It also explains that both Saivam and Vaishnavam should be treated an one and all humans should be treated the same way.

Another great person, Maarkandeya Maharishi who is one of the Siranjeevi, got the seva of this perumal. The perumal gave his seva along with Kamalavalli Naachiyaar as Kamalanathan in Nindra thirukkolam.
The perumal is also called as “Pambha Anai appan”. Lots of utsavar Idols were got during excavation and they were kept in Separate sannadhis.

The Moolavar found in this sthalam is Paambanaiyappan. (Paambu + Anai + Appan). He is also named as “Kamalanathan”. Moolavar is in Nindra Thirukkolam facing West Prathyaksham for Narada and Maarkandeya.
