Introduction to Vada Nadu Thiruppathigal
Vada Nadu Divya desams - Thirupathigal are said to be found in Northern part of our country (ie little bit above from TamilNadu, all the Divyadesams are termed to be Vada Nattu Thirupathigal).
There are 11 Divyadesams found in Vada Nadu. Among these 11 Divyadesams, the perumal is giving his seva facing his thirumugham along 8 divyadesam and towards Nord direction, he is found in 2 divyadesam.
He is also found in 3 different thirukkolams among these 11 Divyadesams.
- Kidantha Thirukkolam - 1 Divyadesam.
- Nindra Thirukkolam - 7 Divyadesams.
- Irundha Thriukkolam - 3 Divyadesams.
Out of 11 Divyadesams, in 9 divyadesams, the perumal is found as "Ekapathini Samethar seva" (with only one wife), and in Thiruaayarpadi he is found along with Rukmami and Sathyabama and in Thirudwaraka, he is found along with more than two pirattis.
Some of the Vada Nattu divyadesa sthalams and the Perumals are destroyed by some of the Mughal Emperors, but they are re - constructed and the worship is still being done now.
