Nadhan Koil Nandipura Vinnagaram Vishnu temple

‎14 kms South West of Kumbakonam; 3 kms East of Pateeswaram near Korukkai village is Nadhan Koil Nandipura Vinnagaram Vishnu temple.

IT IS BELEIVED THAT MISUNDERSTANDINGS BETWEEN HUSBAND AND WIFE WILL BE SOLVED ON VISITING AND PERFORMING POOJA TO THE SHRINE

Srinivasar in sitting posture, west facing with Shenbagavalli Thayar, and Jagannathan is the Utsava Moorthy. This is one of the 108 Divya Desams and the theertham is Nandhi theertham.

Nandhi, the gate keeper of Lord Shiva, wanted to meet Lord Vishnu at Vaikuntam and entered without securing the permission of the security guards (Dwarapalakas) of Vishnu. This angered the Dwarapaalakaas who cursed the Nandi. Nandi undertook penance here as directed by Lord Shiva, got the dharshan of Lord Vishnu and relieved of curse. Hence the name Nandipura Vinnagaram. An image of Nandi can be seen on one of the walls of the temple.

Goddess Lakshmi wanted to reside in the heart of Lord Vishnu. She undertook a penance at this place facing East. It is said that the Lord appeared before her (facing west) and accepted her wishes.

Another version being that Vishnu, who originally faced the east, turned westward to look at King Sibi saving a bird by providing flesh from his thighs.

Jaganadha perumal with Sword, Bow, Chakram, Sanku and Dandam in his hand. Sthala Vinayakar is Siddhi vinakayar. Built by the Pallava King Nandivarma, the Nathan koil is in the Shenbakaaranya Kshetram, which runs from here up to Mannargudi. 6 pooja services are done daily and the temple timings are from 6.30am to 12.00 noon and from 4 pm to 8 pm. Special poojas are done on Fridays.
