KALYANASUNDARAR TEMPLE

  

The Kalyanasundarar Temple at Thirumananjeri is a famous Prarthana sthala. This is located about 15 k.m west of Mayiladuthurai and 5 k.m North from Kuthalam in the Mayiladuthurai-Kumbakonam Highway. It is well-connected by trains and buses.

There is a strong belief that an unmarried man or woman will get married if they propitiate the presiding deity Kalyanasundarar and his divine consort Kokilambal here. They should offer garlands to the divine couple here and will shortly be blessed with marriage.

According to the legend, Lord Kalyanasundarar wed Kokilambal here and this is the reason it is called Thirumanacherry. Goddess Arulmigu Kogilambal was born as a cow as she had been cursed by God Uthvaganathasamy. Later, she was born as a daughter of Saint Bharatwaja Rishi by worshipping the God Uthvaganathar. She then chose the Lord as her husband and married him.

The highlight of this temple is that you can see Lord Kalayanasundarar and Goddess Kokilambal in all their wedding finery. Lord Kalyanasundarar is resplendent and glorious as the bridegroom blessing the devotees. The Goddess stands beside him bowing her head shyly. Another speciality of this temple is that the Lord gave Mangalya Pichai to Rathi Devi and got Manmathan and Rathi Devi married here. Samayakkaravar's Thirugnanasambandar and Thirunavukkarasar praised the Lord at this place in the Agnipuranam.

The interesting thing about this temple is that All times are considered auspicious since Lord as Shiva and Parvathy are in bliss here always. This temple observes no Raagu kalam, Emakandam, Kuligai kalam, Ashtami, Navami and so on. Everyday six poojas are held at Ushakkalam, Kalai Santhi, Uchikalam Sayaratchai and Irandam.
