About the Temple:
It is situated in Tanjoor district, Tamil Nadu. 6 Kms away from Ayyampettai, 7 miles away from Tiruvayyaaru - Kumbakkonam when going in bus.
In this sthalam, all the devars along with Nandhagarishi was given the prathyaksham of Sriman Narayanan.
Since all of them gathered (koodi) all together, this sthalam is called as "Thirukkoodaloor".
After coming to this sthalam only, the River Cauvery regained its speciality and holyness.
Koodal + oor = Koodaloor. Koodal means joining (merging) together at the same place. Since, Cauvery is coming
together in this Kshetram, this Kshetram is also called as "Sangama Kshetram". Sangamam means joined together.
Actually this divya desam is completely washed out by flood and the Lord Came in the dream of Rani
Mangammal, who was the Queen of Madurai and told her that the temple was disappeared inside the earth.
