  1. Mani Madakkoil:

    This temple is one of Thirunangoore temples and one of Divya Desam temples.
    Mani Madakkoil is in Vellaha Street, of Tirunangore, 5 kms from Seergazhi Town.

    The temple is a small, with two prakaram having Artha Mandapam, Maha Mandapam and Main sanctum, facing east.

    Main deity is known as Nandaa villaku Perumal, in sitting posture, with Sanku, chakkram, and Abhya Varadha hastham. We see Sridevi and Bhoodevi to either side of perumal. Thayar is known as Pundarika valli Thayar.

    Urchavar is known as Aladharkariyaan. We also see Urchava idols of Narayana Perumal, Sridevi, Bhoodevi, Namazwar, Thirumangai Azwar, Manavala ma munigal, and Udayavar.

    In inner prakaram we see sanctum of Thirumangai Azwar, Udayavar, Manavalama munigal and Thirukottiyoor Nambigal.

    Purana says Indra and Ekadasa rudrar were blessed by Lord and had darshan of Almighty in this place.

    The Garuda seva urchava perumal of all eleven temples of Thirunangoore meet in this temple of Mani mada koil. We see separate places are arranged for the deities to stay and bless devotees.

    This festival is celebrated in the month of Thai (jan 14- Feb 14 of English calender),Day after new moon day.
