A TEMPLE WHERE SWETAN WAS SAVED BY THE LORD

    







The Divya kshetram TIRUVELLAKKULAM is located 11 Kms by road from Sirkazhi in Tamil Nadu, and one of the 11 Divyadesams associated with Tirumangai Azhwar.

The presiding deity is Srinivasan also known as Annan Perumal in a standing posture. The Goddess is Alarmelmangai. The sacred water is Tiruvellakkulam and the Sanctum sanctorum  is Tatvatyodaka Vimanam.

There are shrines for Nammazhwar, Manavala Maamuni and Kumudavalli wife of Tirumangai Azhwar.

The legend has it that Swetan the son of King Dundumaaran was saved,  by the presiding deity, from the clutches of death upon meditating Mruthyunjaya mantram under a Vilvamaram on the banks of the Pushkatini (Temple tank.)

Tirumangai Azhwar Mangalaasaasana utsavam is the important festival.
