 Greatness Of Temple:

Lord Vishnu granted darshan to great scholar and Acharya Sri Manavala Mamunigal in this temple.  It is also noteworthy that Saint Tirumangai Azhwar addressed only two Perumals as Anna in his hymns, Lord of Tirupathi and this

Perumal.  It is said that the first was this Perumal, thus enjoying the status of elder brother-Annan to Tirupati Lord.  Hence, Lord of this temple is praised as Annan Perumal and place Annan Koil.  As in Tirupati, the name of the Lord here too is Srinivasan and of Mother Alarmel Mangai.  Tirumangai Azhwar praises this place as Bhooloka Vaikumdam – Vaikumdam on Earth.


How Neelan became Tirumangai Azhwar?  Virgins from the celestial world used to come to this place to pluck Kumuda flowers from the tank in this place.  The look of a human male fell on one Kumudavalli belonging to the other world.  Because of a human look on her, she lost the power of returning to her place.  Knowing this, one Neelan, a commander in Tirumangai approached her and sought her hand.  Kumudavalli laid down many conditions to accept him.  Neelan accepted and fulfilled the conditions.  The final one was feeding the devotees.  Perumal, keenly observing this, granted darshan to Neelan and also taught the Mantras and elevated him to the status of Azhwar.  Thus Tirumangai Neelan became Tirumangai Azhwar and poured down hymns on Perumal in sweet Tamil enhancing its richness.

  Temple History:

King Dundumaran had a son named Swethan.  Sage Vasishta said that the boy would die at the age of nine.  The king fell at the feet of Sage Vasishta and begged for a remedy.  The sage told the king that he should bathe in the tank in Tirunangoor, pray to Lord Srinivasa chanting the Narasimha Mrutyunjaya Mantra.  Swetha followed the advice of the sage for a full month.  At the end of the month, Perumal appeared before the young Swetha and said that he had conquered death and added that any person chanting this Mantra 8000 times in this place would never be afraid of death.  This temple is noted for this boon.
