Thirukavalampadi, Thirunangoore temple, Seergazhi.  

Posted by Shamala Krishnan

  1. Thirukavalampadi:

    This is one of Thrunangoore Divya Desa Temple.

    The place is about 9 kms SE of Seergazhi town. The temple is known as kannan Koil with a single prakaram. The main sanctum is facing towards east direction.

    Main Deity is known as Gopala Krishnan in standing posture with Rukmani and Sathyabahama

    Urchavar here, is known as Rajagopalan, with his consort Sengkamala Nachiar.
    We see idol of Krishna with a stick to his right hand, and left hand is on the cow beside him, in inner sanctum in front of the main deity.There is no separate sanctum for Thayar here.

    Teertham is Thadamalar Poigai.

    Purana says Lord Krishna came in search of a flower known as Parijatha Pushpam. Sathyabama liked the flower and she requested Lord Krishna to get the flower for her.

    Lord Krishna was unable to find the flower and he started meditating against Lord Siva. Lord Siva was pleased and told about the place, on his way in search of parijatha flower he liked the place and wanted to stay back in this place.

    Since Lord Krishna liked, and stayed back in this place with Rukmani and Sathyabhama, so the place is considered equal to Dwaraka.
