 General Information:

Those belonging to Hastha star are fond of dresses and ornaments. They show interest in education.  They enjoy music, dance and other fine arts, talkative and humorous in nature.  They voluntarily make friends and are more attached to mother. Mother Parvathi took the form of a cow and worshipped here, hence the place is named Gopuri (Go-Cow, Puri-place) and Gomal.  Lords Vinayaka, Muruga,  Lingodhbava, Dakshinamurthy, Brahmma, Nandhi and Chandikeswara grace from the shrines in the prakara.


While devotees place their prayers to the Lord for happy wedding life, child boon and education in general, those born of Hastha star pray for relief from adverse planetary effects in the temple.

Thanks giving:
  Devotees come to the temple with a cow and calf and go round the temple seeking response to their prayers. 
 Greatness Of Temple:

People born of Hastha star are advised to visit this temple as often as they could for the relief they need due to astrological reasons and especially on the Hastha star days.  Krupakupareswarar is all merciful pardoning wrong doers if they sincerely feel for their deeds.  It is also believed that great saints and siddhas are going round the temple invisibly on Hastha star days.  Hence, Hastha starrers are advised to pray on this day with nivedhanas of sweet puddings, vada, laddu praying to Lord and Mother Annapoorani with folded hands and go round the prakara for blessings. Those with confused minds and aspiring for a peaceful life may pray here on Mondays and Wednesdays.

  Temple History:

Mother Parvathi wanted to know how Lord Shiva is conducting the affairs of this world and asked Lord Himself about it.  Lord played a trick that Mother Parvathi in a playful mood covered His eyes with Her hands.  Within a fraction of second, the activities of the world came to an abrupt halt.  Shocked, Mother Parvathi sought the pardon of the Lord for Her playing.  Lord said to Mother that she made the world dark by covering His eyes with Her hands and added that He would now disappear in the Hasthavarna jyothi (light from hands) and that she must find out that light in the form of a cow and join Him again.   Parvathi came to earth and began to search for the jyoti with the assistance of Her brother Lord Vishnu.  On a Hastha star day, the jyoti appeared.  This is also praised as Gomalia Jyoti.  Mother Parvathi joined the Jyoti.  As the Lord offered his blessings (Krupa) He is named Krupakupareswarar.  This is the story behind the temple.  Mother was named Annapoorani.
