Shri Adi Narayana Perumal

Temple’s Peculiarity:

Lord Vishnu graces from his sanctum sanctorum on his vehicle Garuda, which is a rare form in the Vishnu temples. Here the Lord comes in the mission of rescuing one of his disciples on his vahana Garuda. The temple is an ancient one with traditional architectures and sculptors. Shri Adhi Narayana Perumal temple is near Thiruvarur district.


Sage Bruhu was performing penance here surrounded by Vanni trees. A chola king raised high sounds while hunting a lion and interrupted the penance of the sage. He cursed the king that he would have a lion’s face as he has chosen this place for hunting where sages are engaged in penance. The king begged for a remedy. The sage suggested him to bath in Vettraru River known as Vruddha Cauvery and worship Perumal to get rid of his curse. The king followed the advice of the sage and got back his human face. Hence why this place is very special to Mrigashirsha nakshatra as the king was relieved from his animal (mirgam) face.
