Posted by Shamala Krishnan

  1. Thiru Mani kudam:

    The temple is one of Thirunangoore Divya Desam temles.
    The temple is on the way to Thirunangoore and Mangaimadam known as Manikudam, about 5 kms from Seergazhi Town.

    It is a small temple with Artha mandapam, Maha mandapam and main sanctum.

    Main deity is Varadaraja Perumal in standing posture on Lotus flower peetam with Sridevi and Bhoodevi Thayar. Pushkarani is known as Chandra pushkarani.

    Purana says Indra Garuda and Chandra were blessed by Varadaraja perumal of this place.
  2. Thiru chemponsei:

    This is one of Thirunangoore Divya Desam and one of 108 Divya desam temples.

    The temple is in Thirunangoore about 6 kms from Seergazhi Town.
    The temple has Maha Mandapam, Artha Mandapam and Main sanctum with single prakaram.

    Main Deity is known as Sri Perarulala Perumal, in standing posture with Sridevi and Bhoodevi thayar to either side. Allimamalar thayar is seen in separate sanctum in sitting posture with abhya vardha hastham.
    Pushkarani is known as Hema Pushkarani.

    Urchavar is known as Chemponrangar. We see urchava idols of Chemponrangar, Sridevi, Bhoodevi, Aranganadhar, Aranganayaki and Azhagiyasingar. There are sanctums for Nammazwar and Thirumangai Azwar, in the temple.

    Purana says Lord Sri Rama, to get rid of his brahamahathy dosha (Killing Ravana), stayed in this place and performed pooja. He stayed at Drudanethra Muni's ashram and with his guidance; he made an idol of cow in gold and gave it to a Brahmin as parihara.

    The Brahamin sold the idol of gold cow and with the money he constructed this temple. Hence the temple is known as Chemponsei.

    Thirumangai Azwar sang hymns on perumal of this place.
