Vaikunta Nathar 6, Tirunangur temple, Near Sirkazhi

This temple has  Vainkunta Nathar, Lord Maha Vishnu blessing His devotees sitting on Adisesha. One leg is curled up ,bend at  the knees other let down as if he is  is waiting to rush to help those who completely surrender to him. The same idol, I have seen in Poornathrayeesa temple , Trippunithura in Kerala.
This temple has no other shrines.
There are idols of Santhana Krishna and consorts of Lord Vishnu in the sanctum.

Here the Moolavigraha( the main idol) and Utsavar are similar idols.
Check my previous posts  for other Tirunangur temples.
