Pachaivarana Perumal temple

Today ( 6.1.2020 ) being Ekadesi decided to go to Lord Vishnu temple as last year went to Thirukachi Nambi temple in Poonthamallee , this time wanted to visit Pachaivarna Perumal temple in Agaramel village near Nazarath pettai , Thiruvallur district in Tamilnadu .

This temple is between Poonthamallee and Thirumazhisai .

Though we are near could not make up in the early morning due to rains and heavy traffic after 8am so went in the evening .

Admist the very busy Poonthamallee high road is a calm and quiet Agaramel village of Nazareth pettai .

This temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu . Moolavar is in sitting posture with Goddess Sridevi and Bhumidevi. The Lord Vishnu is named as Harithavarna or Pachaivarana Perumal and Haritha means green in sanskrit . The consort of this Lord Pachaivarna Perumal is Goddess Amruthavalli .

Sthalapuranam : when the elephant named Aswathama was killed in Mahabharata battle , Yudhistra shouted Aswathama was killed loudly and uttered the elephant . Dronacharya ( Dronacharya’s sons name too was Aswathama ) was distracted and shocked . Using this opportunity Dronacharya was beheaded by Dritadyumna ( Draupadhi’s brother ). As Yudhistra lied to get rid of this sin he asked Narada . Narada asked him to pray Lord Vishnu . So Yudhistra performed yagna at this site , a green colour elephant ( which was the Lord Vishnu himself ) appeared before him and relieved Yudhistra from his sin . Yudhistra requested the Lord Vishnu to stay here and bless all his devotees .

Historic importance of this place is Mudaliyandan avatara sthalam. Born to Ananda Narayana Dikshithar and Nachiyaramma , who was the sister of illustrious Sri Ramanujar , Daasarathi was his name Mudaliyandan was the name given to him by Sri Ramanujar . He along with Koorathalwar was a prominent disciples of Sri Ramanujar .There is a seperate sanctum to Mudaliyandan acharya here .

Had divine dharshan went through Parampadhavaasal and came home with his blessings.

The other shrines in this temple are Lord Sriranganathar , Goddess Andal , Lord Rama Lakshman Seetha and Lord Anjineyar .
