About the Temple:
This Divyadesam is situated in Tamil Nadu District. One mile away from Thinnanoor railway station which is on the railway lane between Chennai to Arakkonam. Bus facility available from Chennai - Poonamalle and Thiruvallore.
When Thirumangai Alwar came here to see and get the seva of the Perumal, he didnt notice him, as the Perumal was talking
with Periya Pirattiyaar. Getting angry on him, Thirumangai Alwar just worshipped him without
doing Mangalasasanam. From there he came to Thirukadal Malai (Mahabalipuram) he worshipped
Kadalmalai perumal and did Mangalasasanam on Thirundraoor perumal Pattharavipperumal of
The basic principle of worshipping the God is both Perumal and Thaayar has to be worshipped all
along the way. No one should be left out. If Sriman Narayanan is the God who protects all the
human of the world, then it is periya pirattiyar who recommends for the people to take of them
to Sriman Narayanan.
Worshipping only Perumal and leaving Pirattiyaar is said to be the worship of Sooranaga (Sister
of Ravana) and worshipping only Pirattiyaar and leaving Perumal is said to be the worship of
Ravana. Both these worship are not 100% pure and it is basically due to jealous and anger.
But it is said that once Ravana wanted to get Siva Peruman's wife Parashakthi and then he wanted
to get Sri Vishnu's wife Sita Piratti. But, in Rama Avathaar, Sri Ramar treated Vibeeshana as his brother
there by making both Ravana and Soorpanaka as his brother and sister.
Both the love of Ravana on Parasakthi and the love of Soorpanaka on Rama is one of the way of
love, they want to express.
