Jaya Jaya Sri Sudarsana !
Thiru Chithrakoodam - Sri Govindaraja Perumal Temple,
Temple & Location:
This temple is in Chidambaram in Tamil
in at Chidamabaram Railway station in the Chennai to Trichy
main line. Ample bus facilities are there. Staying
arrangements are well furnished.
As Lord Narayana poses as Nila Thingal Thundan
perumal having inside the Ekambareswar temple premises in
Kanchipuram, here at Chidambaram one of the very big Shiva
temple he poses as Govindarajan near Lord Natarajar Sannadhi.
The Mountain "Chitra Kooda Malai" was
in North India near the Prayagai. In this very place only Lord
Rama Stayed while he was sent to the forest and left his
pregnent wife Sitadevi.
While he came searching for his wife who was
taken away by Ravana, Lord Rama found this place in South
India and compared it's beauty to Chitra Kooda in North India.
Thus it got its name.
As this place largely represents Sri
Kulashekara Alwar considers Govinda rajan as Sri Kalyana Rama
and composed all his 11 Paasurams posing Govindarajan as Sri
Thirumangai alwar found Govindarajan to be still
like a portrait or picture enchanting himself in the stunning
dance of Lord Nataraja here at Ponnambalam - Chidambaram. So
among the 32 Paasurams he composed, the first 10 are of the
("Shankarabaranam Ragam") "Raga:
Shankarabaranam" the favourite raga of Lord Shiva.
It's been said that the 3000 Brahmins of
Thinai, Paanini, Padanjali and Vyakrapadha Maharishi had the vision of
Lord Shiva's dance along with Lord Govindaraja and got both
the lords blessings.
As Parashakti (wife of Lord Shiva) danced with
Lord Shiva transforming her as Thillai kaali, this place is
known as Thillai Nagar.
Pundarekatchan means Vishnu, so his wife is
called Pundaregavalli and the Pushkarani pundarega Pushkarani.
As the perumal Govindarajan lays still and soft
releishing the dance the Vimaanam is called "Sathivega
Vimaanam" where Sathvigam literally means soft nature.
It's been said that while reparing the Nataraja
temple, Aanapaya chozan also known as Second Kulothunga
ordered his men to remove Govindaraja's idol and throw it into
Late the great social reformer Aacharya Ramanuja
took great effort in finding Govindaraja under the sea and
found him and replaced him in his original place.
During the life time of
Poojas was done by the thillai Brahmains ie Shaivities only.
But during 1539 A.D, king Krishnadevaraya's brother
Aachudharayar employed Bhatacharyas (Priests following
Vaishnavam) and made them to render pooja's under the Vyganasa
Aagamam (One type of rites and rituals).
Though there are lots of difference of Opinions
between the Shaivities and Vaishnavities dating back from the
period of Alwars, atleast let us unite together to stop these
meaningless fights and accept the unity between the lords.
1. The main speciality of this temple is that
this Perumal has his sannathi in the premises of the Lord
Shiva's temple itself. That too near the Natarajar sannathi
The Moolavar of this Divyadesam is Sri
Govindarajan. He is giving his seva Kindantha (Sleeping)
Thirukkolam in Bhoga Sayanam facing his thirumugham towards
eest direction. Prathyaksham for Thillai Moovayiravar, Paanini,
Padhanjali and Vyakpathra Maharishi.
The Thayaar found in this sthalam is
Pundaregavalli. She has a separate sannadhi in this temple.
Devadhidevan. Also known as Parthasarathy. He is in the
Chitira Koodhathullan with two wives.
Sri Rama in his Vanavasa Kolam (ie poses as in his
