Jaya Jaya Sri Sudarsana !
034. Thiru Manimaada Kovil - Sri Narayana Perumal Temple,
Temple & Location:
This sthalam is one among the Thirunaangur
Divyadesam and lies in Thirunaangur in Tanjore district in
Tamil Nadu. It's about 5 miles away from Seerkazhi. Bus
facilities are also available.
Nanda Vilakku means the lamp which gives light
continuously. Here the perumal stands as this Nanda Vilakku
giving the Pranava Gyana oli ie Pranavam means the word "Om"
which is the key sound of the whole universe.
Aahirputheyar, Binanai, Roodhar, Pithuroopar, Thriyambakar,
Maheswarar, Virushakabi, Shambuvahanar, Easwarar all the above 10 are known as Ekadasa
Ajaykapathan was once the carrier of Lord Shiva
who was having 4 mouths, 1000 shoulders, Karala Vadhanam, ears
with shell earrings and 100 legs.
Aahirputheyan is the son of Maharishi Boothan and
Binaki is actually a bow which was formed by Lord
Indra. Once Kanva Maharishi who brought up shakuntala was in a
deep prayer and was covered by Sand dunes. Bamboo trees
started to grow on the top and seeing the finest quality of
these Bamboo's, Lord Indra made 3 bows out of them. He named
the first one as Kandibam and kept it for himself. The other
one was named Shargam and was given to Lord Narayana and the
third one was named Binaki and was given to Lord shiva.
Maheswarar has the body and ornaments as Lord
Shiva but is of white colour.
As Lord Narayana gave his dharsan to Lord Shiva
who was received from the sin of killing Lord Brahma. Narayana
gave these Ekadasa Rudhirar's too his special dharsan.
Once saint Dhurvasan gave a garland which was
used in the worship of Godess Lakshmi to Lord Indira. But he
took the garland carelessly and put it on his Elephant
Iravadham. The garland was smashed under the feet of this
Elephant. The saint got angry and cursed Lord Indra that all
his wealth would disappear in the sea.
So happened and on a particular day all the
Deva's churned the sea and the next day they got Godess
Lakshmi's blessings. So that particular day of churning was
named as Ekadasi and the day next as Dhuvadasi.
So after regaining his wealth, Lord Indra got the
dharsan of Lord Narayana at this place.
As Lord Indra and the Rudhirar's got the Lords
dharsan, the pushkarani known as Indra Pushkarani and Rudira
As the Lord here vibrates all his powers as
Pranava without stipping, like a Nanda vilakku the Vimaanam
here is Pranava Vimaanam.
All the 11 Divyadesams of Thirunaangur was
created to receive Lord Shiva from his Brahma hati dhosam.
It's been said that in a war between Lord Shiva
and Lord Vishnu. Lord Shiva throwed his Tirisoolam (his
weapon) on Lord vishnu and he took it as his Thiruman (Symbol
in his forehead) and Lord Vishnu once held Lord Shiva's neck
tightly (while he drank the poison which came from the
Thriuparkadal) and the poison stood there and Lord Shiva was
named Neelakandan thereafter.
By worshipping Lord Shiva his black throat
resembles Lord Krishna's colour and while worshipping Lord
Vishnu the Thiruman stands as symbol for Lord Shiva and thus
these Lords are insisting unity among us.
Narayanar, is the form of Lord who became a
student himself and a teacher himself, teaching Gnana to
himself as being a student and teacher simultaneously. Lord
Naryanan of Manimaada Kovil stands as a lamp which spreads
Gnana to the world and Nara Narayana of Bhadrinath who taught
Gnana to himself and thus both are equivalent in terms of
The above comparison was made by Thirumangai
alwar in his paasuram "Nandha vilake! alatharkuariyay!
Usually the Nanda vilaku is kept in an beautiful
Maadam ie a structure used for placing camps and hence this
place is known as Mani Maada Kovil containing the Lord as camp
1. On every day after Thai
Amavasai, all the
Perumals of the eleven Thriunaangur Thirupathis come here to
Manimaaada Kovil in their in Garuda Vahanams.
On that occasion Thirumangai Alwar with his wife
Kumudhavalli would come from Thirunagari along with the deity
he worshipped. Then to the 11 Thirunaangur Divyadesa Perumals
are praised with the Paasurams (ie) the Mangalasasanam made by
him is sung and finally the Thiru Andikaapu is performed.
Then Thirumangai alwar would accept the garlands
and honour from each perumal. Finally all would set in to a

3. The Grand Garuda sevai along with the 11

(Sitting) Thirukkolam facing his thirumugham towards east
