 Greatness Of Temple:

Of the 108 Divya Desas, this is the temple for which Lord Himself raised the fund to build this temple.  Lord blesses devotees facing east.  Perumal is praised by many names as Semponnarangar, Herambar and Perarulalan.  The Vimana above the sanctum is known as Kanaka Vimanam.  He is Arulalan in His Paramapatha kingdom.  As He is also with us for ever pouring his grace, He is called Perarulalan-All Merciful.  Mother Alli Mamalar Nachiar is gracing the devotees along with Mother Bhoomadevi.


A Brahmin, Kashyapa by name, living in Kancheepuram lost all his wealth and was reduced to a pauper.  He came to this holy land, chanted the ‘Ohm Namo Narayanaya’ mantra 32 thousand times within three days surrendering at Lord’s feet.  All Merciful Perumal blessed him with all riches.

  Temple History:

While returning to Ayodhya after killing Ravana in war, Lord Sri Rama stayed in the hermitage of Sage Dhrudanetra Muni.  As suggested by the sage, to cleanse Him of the Brahmmahati dosha for killing Ravana, Lord Rama made a big Golden Cow, entered into it and performed penance for four days.  Then He donated the golden cow to a Brahmin on the fifth day.  He sold the cow and used the proceeds to build this temple.  As the temple was built with sale proceeds of the golden cow, the place came to be known as Sem Pon Sei Koil – Sempon-pure gold, koil-temple.
