Sri Neervana Perumal

Vainavam - 108 Thivya Thesam (Goodly Land)



Neer Vanna Perumal Temple is the 61 st Divya Desam of 108 Divya Desam. The complex is in two parts. One at the base of the hill. Here Lord vishnu are dharshan between  nintraan (standing) Posture.Here Sri Neervanna Perumal is the main god. 

And another at the hill, Here lord vishna are  kidanthan (sleeping) pallikonda perumal Posture. Irunthaan (sitting) the lord is santha(equanimity) narasimmer. nadanthan (walking) posture the god is ulagalantha perumal (vamana avathar).


Valmiki, author of the famous Ramayana epic, wishes to have the marriage darshan of Lord Sri Rama. He came to this place and performed penance to achieve his aim. Lord Rama appeared before the sage that he wanted with Mother Sita and brothers Sri Lakshmana, Sri Satrugna Bharatha and Sri. The sage has wished the Lord to stay in the place provided for the benefit of all the devotees and Lord was happy to oblige. The wise man is in another temple at the foot of the hill. As it is in a place surrounded by water (NMETI in Tamil), he was hailed as Nmeti Vanna Perumal and place Tiru Nmeti Malai meaning mount surrounded by water. The sage Swayambhu Vâlmîki as a is displayed in a form of worship in the sanctuary.

Saint Tirumangai Azhwar came to this place for Perumals darshan. He could not see Perumal as the mont was surrounded by water. Azhwar has decided to wait and have the darshan of the Lord and stayed in the opposite hill. If days moved, water level has not declined. It is unwavering in its determination and has waited until the water level had dropped, had the darshan.

Pleased with his devotee, Perumal granted four Azhawar darshans of Neer Vanna Perumal standing, Narasimha sitting, Ulagalanda reclining Ranganatha Perumal and in walking postures. The devotee can take advantage of these darshans in the temple. Lord Neervanna Perumal is at the foot of the hills while Ulgalanda Ranganatha, Narasimha and Peruamal are on the hill of the temple.

Although Lord Narasimha is known for his furious appearance, he smiles and cool here. After having killed Hiranya to save his son Prahlada pious of his torture, he was still furious. Boy Prahlada was very afraid of Lords Fury. To make his devotee happy, Lord Narasimha spread his wrath and appeared as boy Prahlada smile itself. It is therefore become Bala Narasimha. There is a sanctuary for him in the temple on the hill. Behind Bala Narasimha is der grafischen Indus (Furious) Narasimha with two hands. We can worship Narasimha in two forms Bala and der grafischen Indus.

Raja Gopuram peeta, Bali and Kodimaram flag post are usually in a row in the temples. Here, the Bali peeta and flag post are slightly to the gap of the Rajagopuram. As Perumal granted for Vâlmîki wise that darshan Nmeti Vanna Perumal and Sri Rama, they are regarded as important in the temple. Therefore, in order to emphasize their importance, Rajagopuram is before Sri Rama shrine and the flag Neervanna post before Perumal.

The sage Tirumangai Azhwar had commended Mother in its Mangala Sasanam anthem as Anima Malar Mangai. The procession deity in Vishnu temples are usually placed before the presiding deity. To the deity is presiding over hill temple and the procession deity Manavalar Azhagia is at the temple of foot hills. Azhagia Manavalar must be coming to the hill temple on the flag hoisting and lowering days during the Brahmmotsavam Chithirai (April-May) and the Uthiram Panguni (March-April) Wedding day of the festival, three days to the total when the devotees will have the articulation darshan of the chairman and the procession of deities together.

Brahmmotsavam is famous to Lord Ranganatha in the hill temple in Chithirai (April-May) and in Panguni (March-April) to Lord Nmeti Vanna Perumal at the foot of the hills. On the Vaikunda Ekadasi day Manavala Azhagia in december-January, Perumal traverse the Sorga Vasal. It also grants the Garuda Seva darshan on Masi Magam day in February-march. A day of celebration is celebrated for Narasimmha in Aani (June-July) and for by USAID From Ulagalanda Perumal in (July-ugust).  Festival of marriage for Neervanna Perumal and anima Malar Mangai is celebrated on the Chithirai-April Uthiram star day in May.

We have seen the gods coming in procession on a vahan only for days of celebration. But vahans Ranganatha originates in seven in procession in a single day on the day Rathasapthami in Thai month (January-February).  During the sunrise period, Lord Ranganatha originates in Surya Prabha vahan when Arti is indicated of the foot to face as if God solar itself performs this pouja. And then, he just in procession on Hanumantha, Garuda, sesha: lasting, horse, lion and Surya Prabha vahans.

The tank of holy is one of form, but includes four theerthams. In Kumbakonam, the tank Mahamaga is suspected to be a point of confluence of 19 theerthams. Similarly, four theerthams Karunya Siddha, Swarna Lagna, and theertham Ksheera confluence in this tank of saints.

Eight Vishnu temples in India are considered as very important hailed as Swayam Vyaktha Kshetras whose this Tiruneermalai temple is a. Others are Srirangam in Srimushnam Tiruchi district, in the district of Cuddalore, Salagramam Tirupathi in the south and, Naraanapuram Pushkaram Naimisaranyam, and in the north. As it is a hill temple, Giri Valam is observed on Poornima-new moon days. The hill is also known as Thoyatri Malai. Thoya wants to say milk. Lord is under the Vimana Thoyatri.
