 Greatness Of Temple:

Books describing the incarnations of Lord Vishnu and his mission to establish Dharma and righteousness are called scriptures or Puranas. Tambirabarani Mahatmiyam is one such book describing the creation of the River by Sage Agasthya and the holy places surrounding the river. Agaram is one such place in Thoothukudi district where Lord Vishnu showed all His ten incarnations.

The place is praised as Dhasavadhara Sthalam (Sthalam-place, Dasavadharam-ten incarnations). As river Tambiraparani flows southward from north, whatever remedial efforts taken here for any problem, has the effect of doing it at Holy Ganga in the north.

Lord Hayagriva, Sages Athri, Mandavyar, Angirasar, Vasistar, Somar, Durvasa, Kabila, Mudradevi and Agahastya had worshipped the Lord in this temple.

  Temple History:

There once lived a theatre artist Mithrasaga in Agaram village who was spreading the glory of Sriman Narayana through his Dasavathara dramas throughout the country. He enacted one such event in Kashmir in the presence of King Kungumangadhan and princess Chandramalini. The princess fell in love with the artist. With the acceptance of the parents, the marriage went off in a grand manner. They had a happy married life as a role model to others. During their old age, the couples built a hermitage and were engaged in the service of Lord Narayana. Pleased with their pure life, Lord Vishnu appeared before them on a Dwadasi day (12th day from new moon or full moon day) on Masi month (February-March) and taught them the great "Ohm Namo Baghavate Vasudevaya" mantra.

Special Features:
  Miracle Based: The greatness of the temple is in the single stone sculpture depicting the 10 incarnations of Lord Vishnu.
