 Greatness Of Temple:
     
 

The place has the reputation of being the birth place of a Mother, who gave an illustrious son Nammalvar to spread and sing the glory of Lord Vishnu.  The wedding of Udaya Nangai, daughter of Tiruvazhmarban in the service of Nanjil Nadu Tiruvenparisaram with Kaarimaran a chieftain of Kurunadu took place in the house of the bride.  They had no child though years rolled by.  The couple went to Tirukurungudi, also a Divyadesa and prayed to Lord Nambi seeking child boon.  Lord Nambi appeared before them and offered Himself to be born to them and advised them that the child be taken to the Tamarind tree in Tirunagari and assured that He as a child would bring great reputation to them.

 

Mother Udayanangai delivered a male child on Visaka Star day in Vaikasi month (May-June) on a poornima-full moon day.  They took the child as directed by Lord  in a golden cradle to the tamarind tree in Azhwar Tirunagari. The child simply climbed on the tree with Gnana Mudra, meditated upon Lord Aadhi Natha to the chilling surprise of those gathered there.  The child was in penance for 16 years.  This is the sacred history of Tirupathisaram.

 
     
  Temple History:
     
 

Suseendram, a holy place in Kanyakumari district was once known as Gnanaranyam-jungle of wisdom.  Saptha Rishis – seven Maharshis were performing penance here.  Lord granted Darshan to them in the form of Lord Shiva.  The Rishis proceeded to Soma Theertha Ghat to have the darshan of Lord Vishnu.  Having darshan of Lord as they wished, they also prayed that He should stay in this place.  Lord granted their wish and is gracing the devotees as Lord of Wisdom in this place.
