of you would have known by now that the Thirumeni of Sri Anantha
Padamanabar is made of Nava Rathnams (Gold, diamond, gems, vaiduryam
and lots more) This was discovered recently when Pothis (Archakas
are called as Pothis in Malai Nadu divya desams) saw some shine
in one of the hands of Perumal while doing Thirumanjanam to moolavar.
When they started cleaning, to their amazement, they found that
complete thirumeni of perumal is full of gold and nava rathnams
(This was covered with some black element some centuries back to
protect perumal from invaders).
Of all the Sayana Perumals, the one
at this Kshetra is the largest. To have complete darshan of the
Siras(Head), body and Pada(Feet), one has to view from the three
entrances. On the south side of the compound there is a Sannadhi
for Yoga Nrisimha with Hanuman in front and Krishna at the rear
of the Sannadhi. The temple for Lakshmi Hayagriva and Srinivasa
is on the south side. As per the Sthala purana , at the request
of Diwakara yogi, Lord took the huge form of the size of Tridanda
so as to have darshan from the three entrances. Anantasayana vrada
is considered very important here.
Approach : This temple is located on the capital
city of Kerala.It is well connected by Road and Rail.
