Sri Kalamegha Perumal Thirumoghur

This is one of the Pandiyanadu divyadeshams near to Madurai .

Nammalwar and Thirumangai alwar has sung praising this Lord .

As per the legend Dhurvasa Maharishi cursed Indira, to loose all his wealth, when he was not given respect. Due to this the devas lost their strength and the Asuras regained. As per the advice of  Lord Vishnu Devas and Asuras churned the Thiruparkadal to get the nectar ( Amruth) . An aalakala poison came first and the same was consumed and kept in the throat by Lord Shiva . After that Jyesta Devi , Lakshmi and finally nectar has come. The Devas and Asuras fought with each other to consume the Amirtham first . Lord Vishnu took the form of Mohini and gave it to Devas after mesmerizing the Asuras. The place where Vishnu gave to Devas was this place Thirumohur . Initially it was called as Mohana Kshethram latter corrupted to Mohiniyur and then Mohiyur and to the present name Thirumohur.

In ancient times this place was called as Mohanakshethram.

Sri Chakkarathalwar sannidhi is more powerful than Perumal of this temple. The sannadhi vimanam is covered with copper plate with gold plating. People used to worship Chakkarathalwar for Child boon, Marriage, to get rid of Pilli sunyam, eval ( Black magic), Debt, etc, to flourish in the business.
The temple is known for “Chakkrathalwar” (Sudarshan swamy) temple which is probably the first Sudarshan swamy temple in the world. Here lord Sudarshan (who is also a representation of Lord Vishnu himself) is seen with 16 hands. Each of the 16 hands has a weapon (also known as Shoda-Ayudha from where the shloka Shoda-ayudha stotram also probably came). Pradakshina of the Lord’s temple removes all hurdles from one’s life and HE bestows on you all success and answers your prayers.
