    Sri Sathya Murthy Perumal temple, Pudukottai


    0 Not allowed!
    This is one of the 108 Divyadesa temples of Lord Perumal. There are two presiding deities in the temple Lord Sathyamurthy and Lord Tirumeyyar. This is a 7th century temple.Thailakappu is performed on the presiding deity once in 12 years.

    To promote harmony among the Saivites and the Vaishnavites, two temples including this one, were constructed having a common compound wall. The temples are on the slopes Tirumayam hill from a single rock. One cannot circumambulate a single temple but only jointly.

    Perumal praised as Sathyamurthy graces the devotees from the sanctum sanctorum under the Somachandra Vimana, holding His discus and conch in standing posture. The place is praised as Sathya Kshtram after the name of Lord Perumal.

    Lord Tiru Meyyar after whose name the place is named as Tirumayam is in His reclining posture on the Adisesha serpent bed graces from another shrine. It is said that this reclining Perumal is the biggest in India. His eyes are half closed. Perumal is surrounded by Sages and Devas.

    Lord Brahmma appears from His naval chord. Mother Mahalakshmi graces devotees from Lordís chest. Every sculpture is as beautiful as in Mamallapuram infusing Bhakti and love of art. Lord granted darshan to Sage Sathya Maharshi in this temple.

    According to the History:
    While Lord was in His Yoga Nidhra on Adishesha Ė pretending to be asleep - two demons Madhu and Kaidaba came there to abduct Mother Mahalakshmi and Mother Bhoodevi. Afraid of them Mahalakshmi hid in Lordís chest and Bhoodevi at His feet. Unwilling to disturb the sleep of Perumal, Adisesha spit his venom from his tongues and drove away the demons. Adishesha was afraid that he acted without the permission of Lord. Lord said that he did only good and appreciated his action. To prove this event, Adisesha appears in a shrinking posture, says the Sthala Purana.
