 General Information:

Lord Varadaraja Perumal and Mother Perundevi grace in the temple from separate shrines. People born of Jeshta-Kettai star are noted for their excellence in education, courage, mischievous talks, eloquence and humour.  Though short-tempered, they don’t think of evils to others.


Jeshta starrers pray here for relief from adverse planetary effects.  Those suffering from vision problems pray to Koorathazhwar in the temple.

Thanks giving:
  Devotees offer white clothes (vastras), jasmine garlands with Vada and sweet Vada known as Adhirasam in Tamil. They light ghee lamps and also light lamps with oil prepared with three herbals called Marudani, Karisilankanni and Sembaruti in Tamil. This is considered to be more sacred and effective. 
 Greatness Of Temple:

Those born in Kettai star are advised to worship in this temple as often as they could or at least on their birth star day.  It is noteworthy that Peria Nambigal was born in this star.  His birth star day is grandly celebrated in the temple.  The starrers pray to the Guru for betterment in life.  They offer white vastras, offer jasmine garlands and light ghee lamps in his shrine.  For nivedhana, they offer Vada and adhirasam, popular dishes of Tamilnadu.  For lighting lamps, they also use special oil prepared with three herbals which is available in the temple itself.  People suffering from impaired vision, pray to Koorathazhwar.

  Temple History:

Sri Ramanuja, his Guru Peria Nambigal and disciple Koorathzhwar were staying in Srirangam.  A Chola king jealous of the growing popularity of Sri Ramanuja, sent his men to capture Sri Ramanuja.  As they could not identify Ramanuja, disciple Koorathazhwar, posing as his Guru in white clothes offered himself to be arrested.  Peria Nambigal and his daughter Tiruthzhai accompanied Koorathzhwar.


The Chola king demanded them to give in writing that his religion was greater than theirs.  They refused.  The king ordered his men to take off their eyes.  Koorathzhwar punched his eyes himself.  The king’s men blinded Peria Nambigal’s eyes.  Tiruthuzhai brought them to this temple.  Peria Nambi was 105 years old then.  Perumal granted darshan to them and gave salvation to Nambigal.  The Lord is praised as Varadaraja Perumal – Boon Giver God.   Mother Perundevi Thayar graces with Lord. It is in this temple, Lord Varadaraja Perumal granted darshan and salvation to Sri Ramanuja’s Guru Peria Nambigal.
