Ten-year-old shrine with a deity similar to


Narasimha in Hampi
Kattavakkam, a village near Walajabad, has a temple, constructed approximately 10 years back, for a rare deity
worshipped as Vishvaroopa Lakshmi Narasimha Swami (Vishnu).

Kattavakkam, a village near Walajabad, has a temple, constructed approximately 10 years back, for a rare deity
worshipped as Vishvaroopa Lakshmi Narasimha Swami (Vishnu). This majestic image is in a seated posture
with the seven hoods of Adisesha outspread above the head. He holds the discus (chakra) in the right upper hand
and the bow and arrow together in the left upper hand.

The lower right hand is in the pose of offering protection (abhaya hasta) and the lower left
hand is in the boon-giving pose (varada hasta). Mahalakshmi, holding a lotus in the left hand, with the right
hand in abhaya hasta, is seated on Narasimha’s left lap.

The UNESCO World Heritage site, Hampi, the capital of the Vijayanagar dynasty from 1336 AD to 1565 AD,
near the Tungabhadra River in Karnataka, has a huge monolithic Narasimha image, 6.7 metres high, in a
damaged condition.

This deity was consecrated in the reign of Krishnadeva Raya in 1528 AD, as mentioned in an inscription.
In Hampi, the mutilated image of Narasimha is seen seated on the coils of Adisesha
whose seven hoods are outspread above and with the yoga-patta (band) around the knees.

Narasimha’s four arms which once held various weapons and the image of goddess Lakshmi, once seated on the
left leg, have been broken.

Although the weapons held in Narasimha’s hands and the Lakshmi image are not seen today, the pieces once
found in the debris near this temple reveal that this deity once held a chakra in the upper right hand, a bow and
arrow in the upper left hand, while the lower hands were in the abhaya and varada mudras.

The deity in Kattavakkam is similar to the one in Hampi of the Vijayanagara times.
Sri Lakshmi Narasimha perumal temple,Sevilimedu,Kanchipuram
Dear bhagavathas,

We all aware that there are 106 Perumal temples in India and Present day Nepal that has been
considered as Divya desam since the Azhvar saints sang in praise of the Lord in these
temples.Apart from these temples there are numerous vaishnava temples mostly in South India that
are visited by great srivaishnava acharyas like Sri Ramanuja, Sri Vedanta Desika and Sri Manavala
Maamuni etc..

There are plenty of vishnu and siva temples in Kanchipuram which every one is aware of. The
Kanchi varadarajar temple is well known to us and Pallava kings have taken great care of these
temples and these temples had glorious time during their kingdom.However during the mugal
invasion there was a great threat to these siva/vishnu temples and our acharyas have taken great
pains to preserve the deities and the temple. At Srirangam during the Malikkafur's invasion Sri
Pillai lokacharya has taken the idols of Sri Ranganatha to Thirumalai and for many years the temple
at Srirangam was locked.Similarly during the Mugal invasion the Kanchi Varadarajar was taken to
a less known temple at Sevilimedu village in the banks of Palar. There was a beautiful Sri Lakshmi
Narasimha temple at this village and Sri Varada was residing here for one year and HIS utsavams
were performed here.The idols were taken to this temple from original varadaraja temple thru a
tunnel which can be even seen today. In order to remind of this incident even today Sri Varada
visits this temple during Chitra Pournami day.

Another interesting note is that the famous well from which Sri Ramanuja used to offer water to Sri
Varada is situated near to this temple. The Well is called SalaikiNaru meaning the Well near the
road.

The deities here are so beautiful and the Sri Lakshmi Narasimha is 7 ft tall salagrama and Sri
Soundarya valli Thayar is 5 ft tall. Utsava moorthy is called as Sri Soundarya varadan.There are
also vigrahas of Sri Hanuman, Sri Andal and Sri Kannan.
What ever you read is the History.What happens today..

The Rajagopuram is totally damaged and even you have to use alternate entrance to visit the
temple. Further no sanctum santorum for Hanuman and Andal. The madappalli (kitchen) is house
for rats and mouse.There is no money for daily aradana too..
The local residents and archakas have approached few mutts and the response is not very
encouraging. BUT with the blessings of Sriya: pathi YOU can make a difference to this temple. The
current estimate is around 15 lakhs of rupees to renovate the gopuram and other maintenance
works.

Please review the images of scanned pages of Kumudam bhakthi special below regarding this
temple.

In this verse set in the majestic Sarthoola Vikriditham meter to remind one

of the powerful movements of the fast lion chasing Hiranya, Swami Desikan

prays to Kaamaasikaa Narasimhan to bless the people of the world and grant

them all their desired boons (Asaou. Kaamaasikaa Kesari: Asesha Jagathaam

kaaman aatanuthaath). Swami describes the Lord facing west. He sits in

Paryangaasanam at ThiruvELukkai and appears in his Yogic posture giving the

impression that He is ready to teach His devotees the secrets of Yoga that

require knowledge about the firm control of the five vayus (Praanan,

Apaanam, Samaanam, Udhaanam and Vyaanam). He also appears to indicate to

them the firm way to control the five Karmendriyaas and the five

Jnanendriyaas as the prerequisite to meditate on Him. One of the names for

Lord Narasimhan is Hrishikesan or the one who has full control over his

Indriyaas. Kamasikaa Narasimhan’s Paryangaasanam (Yoga Pattai with a belt

over his crossed legs and knees) reminds of His Yogaacharya role in teaching

his disciples such as Prahlaada the secrets of Yoga to attain His blessings.

Legend :

1) Once there was an ego battle between Brahma and Vishnu, they set off to reach the top and bottom of Shiva as a
competition. During that time Thazamboo (Lavender tree flower) gave a false witness to Shiva that Brahma had reached
the top of Shiva. Knowing this, Shiva cursed Thazampoo that it should not be used in any Shiva pooja. In order to get rid
of the curse, it stands here as the Sthala Vruksham. Nandhi’s footsteps are seen here.

2) Mythology has it that the wedding of Lord Shiva with Parvathi was performed at Mount Kailash, the eternal and
ethereal abode of Lord Shiva. All the Devas, Rishis, Saints, along with Lord Vishnu, Brahma and their consorts assembled
to witness the marriage. The northern part Himalayan Mountain, sunk in whereas the Southern part has gone up. So to
make it balance, As desired by Lord Shiva, Agastya Risha stood on top of the Mount and hence the Mount sub-merged
into the earth. Rishi Agastya witnessed the marriage of Lord Shiva with Parvathi from the top of this Mount. Therefore
the prayers of the devotees for their marriages are getting fulfilled.

3) NANDI, became ‘Vaahana’ of Shiva :

Nandi, son of saint Siladara performed penance seeking blessings and acceptance of Lord Shiva. It is from this Holy Hill
Periyamalai that Lord Shiva blessed Nandi to be His Vehicle, for the first time. Since then, this Hill is venerated and
worshipped by the Saints and Devatas as a sacred place.

Worshipping Lord Nandeeshwara of this temple is regarded as very sacred as He grants the prayers. The village was
called “Nandipuravinnagaram” (Sky high village, Nandipuram) as Periyamalai was very tall once upon a time.

4) Amavasya Thithi

Rishi Siladara performed penance. Lord Shiva appeared before the saint, and asked him what boon he wants. Rishi
requested Lord to attain Mukthi along with the mortal body (sthula sarira) Lord granted his prayer. Joyfully when saint
was traversing in the sky, Rishi Narada intercepted and enlightened the Rishi that he cannot enter the heaven with his
mortal body. There is a inner secret of his birth. He has to return to earth to commence the Amavasya Thithi to redeem
the bondaged soul from their sins. Thus the Rishi started the Amavasya (offering prayers to departed souls) by wearing
the Holy Grass Minji. This word Minji has become Inji and now it is the name of the village itself i.e. INJIMEDU.

5) Anointment of Herbal Shivalinga

Saint Devadootha prayed Lord Shiva for many years. Lord appeared before him and granted his prayer. Hence Saint
Devadootha anointed the Shivalinga in ancient times on top of the Mountain. The Linga was made out of herbal plants.

6) Ganga

Lord Shiva created a Holy Ganga on top of the mountain as the Rishis prayed for water for their use. This Holy spring is
perennial and is very sweet and cures many diseases.

it is associated with krythayuga. Lord Shiva is in the form of lingam and is named as THIRUMANI CHERAI UDAYAR (highly
decorative and attractive Shiva). The Goddess Parvati is named THIRUMANI NAYAGI (pleasant and blissful). This
Shivalinga is 5 feet 6 inches tall atop the hill. Shivalinga is very elegant, attractive and vibrant. From any account, this is
the tallest Shivalinga atop a Hill in India. This Temple is regarded as an abode of eternity (Mukthi) (Moksha) & also
southern kailash.

2500 years old temple which got ransacked about 700 years ago by various invasions. The Thirumanicherai Shiva lingam
which was lef alone without any pooja/ worship for nearly 700 years, finally got a facelif and the Kumbabhisheham took
place in 1999. Sanghu theertham is present in the hill in the shape of Sanghu. It is said that there is a spacious cave here
where Pampatti Chithar is living in the form of a snake.

There is a Holy spring which is perennial and is very sweet and cures many diseases.

Edicts :

An epigraph dating back to 1126 A.D. by Chola King Vikramadhitya atop the hillock describes the glory of Lord Shiva, the
name of God, Village, Ruler and Sculptor.

Another astonishing rock edict echoes like the Buddha principle that if any one goes to the temple their desires would be
quenched.

There are altogether 33 statues of different deities installed. There is a Dhyana Mantapa at the bottom. A cave and a
Deepa Mantapa on top are adding beauty to the elegant temple.

INJIMEDU PERIYAMALAI
THIRUMANICHERAI UDAIYAR TEMPLE

Distance: 28kms from Vndavasi via Peranamallur

Shiva: Thirumanicherai Udaiyar

Amman: Thirumaninayaki

Sthala Viruksham: Thazhampoo

Theertham: Ootru Neer, Sangu Theertham present in Sangu Shape (shape of a conch)

Speciality:

The Shiva Linga is made of Navabhashanam. Abhishekam is done from the water brought from the spring water. The
Abhisheka water cures many diseases - snake bites, infertility and so on.

This mount was tall approximately to the height of Himalayas. Therefore it was called Periyamalai. Agasthya witnessed
the marriage of Lord Shiva in Kailash from the top of this mount before it was pressed down.It sank down when Agasthya
kept his feet on the peak.
The foot steps of Nandhi are seen in the temple.

This temple is more than 2500 years old.

The hill is 200f tall.

The name of the Village in ancient times was Nandhipura Vinnagaram.

The number of steps is just above 50.

This temple was ransacked by invasions but now it has been brought into a good Shape.

There is a cave where Pambatti Siththar is said to live in the form of a snake.

History:

When Agasthya was sent from Mount Kailash to balance the weight which was immense due to the people and Devas
gathered for wedding of Shiva and Parvathi he happened to come to this place. The weight in Kailash made the mount
come down. Agasthya stood on this mount which went down to balance the level of the ground such that mount Kailash
would not come down any more. The peak of Periyamalai was penetrating upward.

Sage Silathiyar wanted the boon of going to Kailash in his own body. Sage Naradha told him that his ancestors were
wandering without food and water. So, he told him to perform the ritual of offerings to them. Silathiyar picked up a Ilanji
Grass (dharpai) and gave offerings to his ancestors. This place was full of Ilanji Grass. Therefore this was called Ilanjimedu
which has been trasformed to Injimedu. The practice of Pithru Tharpanam is done here.

Later a Sage performed penance towards Lord Shiva here. To disturb his penance an elephant brought water from the
spring and splashed on him. He was motionless. The elephant tried to reach the sage but was stopped by a fire circle
around the Sage. The determination of the sage was praised by lord Shiva. Lord Shiva appeared before him and asked
him what he wanted. He said that he wanted the Lord to stay here so that his devotees could worship him and get their
wishes fulfilled. Shiva agreed and the Sage created a Navabhashanalinga and installed it here.

There was an ego battle between Brahma and Vishnu that who was siperior than the other. Brahma and Vishnu said to
search the top and bottom of Shiva respectively. It was a deal that if Brahma could find the top and Vishnu could find the
bottom of Lord Shiva they were considered superior if they could complete their task first. The Thazhampoo which fell
from Shiva's head was a false witness in support of Brahma as he lied that he had seen the top of Shiva. Shiva cursed
Thazhampoo and Brahma. What happened to Brahma is entirely a different story. The family of Thazhampoo could not
flourish due to this curse. In order come out of the curse it stands as Sthala Viruksha here always praising Lord Shiva.

Nandhi was the son of Sage Siladharan. Nandhi performed penance seeking the blessings and acceptance of Lord Shiva.
Shiva blessed Nandhi from this hill to be his Vahana. Therefore worshipping Nandhi here is considered to be very sacred.
Participating in Pradhosha poojas will have more good effects than in any other temple.

Former top bureaucrat turns swami, swaps suit-


and-tie for saffron robe and rudraksh-mala

Anisha Sheth | The News Minute | July 11, 2014 | 5.04 pm IST Afer retirement, an IAS officer of the Karnataka cadre has
discarded crisply ironed shirts for a saffron garb, rudraksh mala, Shaivite naama, and talks about “continuing the
aspirations of his previous birth in his current life”. Former Principal Secretary of Karnataka I R Perumal has now changed
his name to Sivayogi Perumal Swami. Perumal is president of the Injimedu Cherai Udaiar Charity Trust, which is
constructing a temple dedicated to Shiva atop a hillock in Thiruvannamalai district in Tamil Nadu. Possibly, his story might
not have been as remarkable were he not a retired IAS officer. Permual ended his career in the civil services in 2012. “I
was a free man on August 1,” he told The News Minute. Now, he is building a temple dedicated to Shiva, to whom, he
claims he owes everything in life. In 2011, a Kannada news channel telecast a story on I R Perumal, then Principal
Secretary for Sports and Youth Services. In it, the officer said he owed his success as an IAS officer to the Shivalinga atop
the Injimedu hillock. Perumal told The News Minute that there was an “ancient” Shivalinga which had existed atop the
hillock “since time immemorial”, and that nobody knew who had installed it. Then, he went on to recount the history of
the original Injimedu village which had been destroyed in a war and rock edicts supposedly found near the Shivalinga.
Afer this war, the Shivalinga lay abandoned for 500 years, with no one to offer any pooja, Perumal said. Enter Perumal’s
father. Perumal said that his father was a farmer and that he had some land which he lost. They lived near the base of
the hillock. One day, his father met a sanyasi who was living near the base of the hillock. The sanyasi told Permual’s
father that he would get his land back if he worshipped the Shivalinga. Perumal’s father was also told that if he lit the
lamp top the hillock every year on the day of a particular festival, he would be blessed with a son who would one day
renovate the old temple and construct a new one. Perumal’s father did get his land back and carried out the sanyasi’s
instructions. Perumal says that he believes in the power of the Shivalinga completely. As a child, he saw goddess Parvati
with a trishul in her hand and a crown on her head along with seven other goddesses “going round and round” on the
hillock. “I told my father about this, and he said that I was the one who was born to renovate the temple.” Perumal said.
Asked about his duties as an IAS officer, Permual said: “I served humanity (as an IAS officer). Now I can live for the
spiritual side.” He claimed that he had ensured that five lakh people got ration cards because of his efforts. “The rules are
such, very rigid, so I got amendments for the poor. The deserving people were ignored. I took strong steps and (they
were given ration cards).” He said that everywhere he went, he did good. “God’s gif is with me. Whichever department I
worked in, became a profitable department.” Now, in the last two years since he retired, Perumal has collected funds for
the temple and says that he has had a gopura built over the idol, steps to the hillock have been laid and 33 other deities
had been installed. He said that the trust he is heading has been registered under the Foreign Contributions Regulation
Act. He said that currently, 100 people came to the temple everyday and that he eventually planned to construct hotels
and dormitories for devotees, and even start an “anna daana” programme. Asked if such extensive infrastructure was
needed for just 100 devotees, Perumal said: “When Dharmasthala was started 400 years ago, there was nothing there.
Unless you provide facilities, people will not go. See how it is today. People have faith, crowds will start coming.” To a
question on whether people were contributing to the construction of the temple, Perumal said: “Hindus and Muslims
contribute 3 percent (of their incomes to religious activities) per annum. Hindus give (offerings) to many temples and
gods, so it gets divided. For our temple (to receive monetary contributions) it will take time,” he said, but very cheerfully.
Periyamalai Siva Temple, Injimedu, Arani, Thiruvannamalai

Sri Injimedu Periyamalai Siva Temple is situated in Tamilnadu. It is also one of the prominent Shiva Temples of South
India. Many people visit this place for the relief from their problems. The temple is situated on the hills of Periyamalai of
Thiruvannamalai District. One can reach the temple by visiting Arani, a taluk of Thiruvannamalai district which is very
near to temple. From Vellore the temple is approximately seventy kilometers. From Arani, the Shiva temple is near by.

The lake of this place is believed to relief all the problems of the devotees. This is the only temple in which the special
pooja is performed for Nandi, the vahana of Lord Shiva. It is believed that Maharshi Agastya had done the pratisthapana
of this temple and a statue of Muni Agastya is still present in the temple premises. Temple will be open from morning
7.30 to noon 12.30 and again from noon 3.00 to 8.30 in the night.

The history of this place is, during Shiva Parvathi kalyanotsava many devotees and followers of both Shiva and Parvathi
had visited Khailash and the Khailash couldn’t withstand the weight, at that time Lord Shiva asked Agastya Mahamuni to
go to South part. When Maharshi did the same, the Khailash could withstand its strength and during that time he did the
pratisthapana of Lord Shiva. For centuries together many kings were devotees to this temple. It is also believed that
Shiladhara did Tapas in this place to get the blessings from Lord Shiva.

People visit this temple for all kind of problems related to education, property, money and even health.

This temple is near to Vellore and Arani so one can opt for staying in any of these cities. Vellore is preferable as it has
good number of hotels and well connected by railways (Katpadi junction) and roadways.

An Ancient Temple – An abode of adoration for eternity

This ancient temple is considered to be more than 2500 Years old as per the available historical accounts. Mythologicaly
it is associated with krythayuga. Almighty, Lord Shiva is in the form of lingam and is named as THIRUMANI CHERAI
UDAYAR (highly decorative and attractive Shiva). The Goddess Parvati is named THIRUMANI NAYAGI (pleasant and
blissful).

It is regarded as an abode of eternity (Mukthi) & also southern kailash.

Tallest

This Shivalinga is 5 feet 6 inches tall atop the hill. Shivalinga is very elegant, attractive and vibrant. From any account, this
is the tallest Shivalinga atop a Hill in India.

Goddess Thirumani Nayagi statue is 4 feet tall and is again the tallest one atop a Hill. The DEVOUT need to be proud of
patronizing and worshiping it.

Periyamalai and the Himalayas

Once upon a time, this mountain Periyamalai (Great Mountain) is said to have been as tall as Mount Kailash in Himalayas.
It is said that Lord Shiva, the greatest of all deities Himself performed penance in this sacred place. Therefore, the
Mountain got the name Periyamalai. Hence it has become an abode of worship for Rishies and Saints.

Vibrant Lord Vinakaya

The Lord Vinayaka is made out of white marble inherited from erstwhile Baroda province (Gujarath State) through Sri.
P.G.Krishnan and Smt. Dhanalakshmi is also very elegant, attractive and vibrant.
Edicts

An epigraph dating back to 1126 A.D. by Chola King Vikramadhitya atop the hillock describes the glory of Lord Shiva, the
name of God, Village, Ruler and Sculptor.

Another astonishing rock edict echoes like the Buddha principle that if any one goes to the temple their desires would be
quenched.

There are altogether 33 statues of different deities installed. There is a Dhyana Mantapa at the bottom. A cave and a
Deepa Mantapa on top are adding beauty to the elegant temple.
