Tiripuravadhigai

Thiruvadigai - Saranarayana Perumal Temple  

Thiripuravadhigai or Thiruvadhigai is a village between Panruti and Cuddalore. It is believed that Lord Vishnu became the Saram (arrow) for Lord Shiva to burn down the Tiripurandhakas and hence is called Saranarayana Perumal. This is the place where Shiva worshipped him after burning down the Tiripurandakas and hence the place is called Tiripuravadhigai. 


Saranarayana Perumal Thiruvadigai

This is a Pallava period temple. The moolavar in this temple is Saranarayana Perumal with Sridevi thaayar. Also, you will find the Sayana Narasimhar, the only place in the world where you will find Narasimhar in the sleeping posture. A very small vigraham, with thanga kavacham, simply wonderful.

Saranarayana perumal is found in Kalyana Thirukkolam with Sridevi thaayar  as he married the daughter of Margandeya maharishi here . The goddess is called Hemambujavalli and the Utsavar is called Govinda Vinnagarappan.

Sayana Narasimhar : Lord Narasimha is seen in a Sleeping Posture facing south. It is believed that Lord Narasimha came here tired after a battle with Vakrasuran and killing him, and is said to have taken rest. Hence he is seen in a Sayana Kolam. Lord Mahavishnu is found as Ranganathar in several temples and we also find Lord Shiva in a sleeping posture in Suruttapalli but nowhere else can we see Lord Narasimha in a sleeping posture.
Reference to this can be seen in Narasinga Puranam.
