 Greatness Of Temple:
     
 

A demon, Somukhan by name, stole the Vedas to conquer Devas and hid them somewhere.  Devas appealed to Lord Vishnu for the recovery of the Vedas.  Lord killed the demon, recovered the Vedas and taught them to Lord Brahmma in this shrine. A king, Sruthakeerthi by name, following the advice of Rishi Naradha, worshipped Perumal here for child boon.  He was blessed with four children. It is generally said that this shrine is not mentioned by Azhwars in their Mangalasasanam hymns.  Yet, according to researchers, the verse beginning with the line “Voruvadal” and in other ten verses beginning with the line “Ezhai Edhalan” by Tirumangai Azhwar contains the Mangalasasanam respect, quoting epigraphic details.  Sri Vedanta Desikan’s Nipasa Thilakam also has a mention about the temple.

 
     
  Temple History:
     
 

Chandra-Moon due to the curse of his wives lost his luster and began to fade.  As advised by Maharshi Naradha, he came to this place, worshipped Perumal and got his curse removed.  He bathed in the Theertha in southeast of this temple and performed penance.  Hence this spring is named Chandra Pushkarini.  Later Devas appealed to Perumal that He should make this place His abode.  Responding to their prayers, Perumal called the divine sculptor Viswakarma and ordered him to make an idol.  Viswakarma made a Big Idol in a reclining form and installed here.  Perumal fulfilled the prayer of the Devas and is gracing devotes from this temple.
