is one of the 11 temples of Tirunangur Tirupati. Tirumangaialwar

As per the sthalapurana, Srirama stayed with Dridanetramuni after
Ravanavadha. As per the muni's advice the Lord made a cow of gold
and resided in it for 4 days. The cow was later donated to a brahmin,
who used the gold to construct the temple, hence the name Sempon
(pure gold) sei kovil. Lord with His Consorts Sridevi, Bhoodevi
and Neeladevi, Brahma and other devas graced the occassion during
poornauhuti and relieved Shiva from the curse of Brahmahatya. As
per Shiva's request Lord Vishnu eternally resides(Nityavasa) in
all the 11 temples of Tirunangur and fulfills the devotees' desires.
The Garuda seva on the day following Thai Amavasya from all the
11 temples is to fulfill the desire of Shiva.
