Valvil Ramar temple- Tirupullam Boothankudi- Tamil Nadu

Valvil Ramar temple is 7 th divya desam of Vishnu and here Bala Ramar is the Moolavar. Here  the Utsavar  Lord Ramar gives darshan in Chathurbhujam  form with Sree devi and Boodevi. The legend is assosiated with Ramayana. Rama is said to have given moksham to Jaytayu here. One would find Lakshmana  and Jatayu inside the sanctum depicted on the wall near the Lord Rama's lotus feet.  Lord is reclining here under the Punnai tree. There is a separate sannidhi for the the Goddess , Hemambhuja valli and a separate sannidhi for Yoga Narasimhar.It is also believed that Yoganarasimhar fulfills the wishes of aspiring job seekers.

Devotees pray here for their ancestors .A temple set in sylvan surroundings, an absolutely calm and quiet place.

How to reach- This temple is in Kumbhakonam ( Tanjore dist) and Tiru Adanoor another divaydesam and Swamimalai, one of the Aarupadai veedu's of Lord Muruga , are close by and about  which I would be writing soon.

Enjoy the slide show.

  3. Excellent photographs. One would need a week or more to visit only the important temples in and around Kumbakonam. Nevertheless I will visit very soon as I am at Chennai for some time.

  14. Hi Chitra,

    These are beautiful pictures. I wonder how they design the temple top with idols around it, arranged in sequential order.

    I read a Wikipedia article about the temple architecture during the Dravidian period and it is very interesting. I never knew artha mandapa or garbha griha before I read it.

    I never knew that lakshman was also kept in temples. I remember reading that Duryodhana also has a temple in south India.

    Nice share Chitra. You are lucky to witness these temples. You may be surprised that living in a place with many temples, I have most of them not visited. I cannot hold time as the culprit than my laziness ;)

    Keep writing.

    Regards,
    Abhilash

  15. Abhi,
    Nice to see you . I was on a pilgrimage. Like you said, indeed it is a blessing to be in a State full of temples. I am happy to click and share with you all.
    But never knew about Duryodhana's temple. That's a good piece of information.
