The place where the temple is situated once was under the kingdom of Arcot Nawab. And, there lived an aged couple, the husband worked as a Diwan in the Nawab kingdom. The couples spent, the money, which they had to pay to the Nawab, was spent towards Deiva Kainkaryam. And as a result of this, they both were ordered to be prisoner.

The couple did not want to accept the punishment as they spent the money only for for Deiva Kainkaryam. So, they went towards the Pushkarani of Thiruvedenthai Divyadesam and let their death happen in the Pushkarani.

But both of them were worried that they didn’t have any children to perform the Srardham for them. And it is said that the god himself performed the Srardham, Hence even today, it is said that the Perumal himself performs Srardham for the people, who don’t have son or anyone else to perform and it is done during the time from 12 noon to 1.00 pm.

And people who want to perform Srardham in this temple can join during the time of Pithru poojai by making the Sangalpam and dedicating it to the Perumal. The Neivedhyam done for this Perumal is Ven pongal (or) curd rice and along with it, Perandai and Yel Thuvayal is dedicated and the Perumal accepts it with full of kindness.

About the Temple:

• The Pithru Poojai, which is performed during Amavasai and Ekadesi thithi, is said to equivalent to that of the Srardham that’s being performed in Gaya.

• In the temple,a sacred Sri Maha Lakshmi Salagramam is found ,worshipping this Salagramam is said to create improvement in business wealth, health and Sakala Sowbhagyam.

• It is said the Perumal himself performs Srardham to our Pithrus, if we could not perform it. And that’s the reason why the Perumal of this sthalam is called with Thiru Naamam – Sri Srardha Samrakshana Narayanan.
