Sri Bhakthavachala Perumal temple Thirukannamangai

It’s one of the Cholanadu divyadeshams. Thiru Kannamangai Bhaktavatsalam Perumal Divya Desam is located about 25kms South of Thirucherai Divya Desam on the Kumbakonam -Thiruvarur road between two rivers – OdamPokki in the South and Virutha Cauvery in the North.

One can take a bus from Kumbakonam via Tirucherai. One can also reach Kannamangai from Thiruvarur (about 7 kms West of Thiruvarur). From Mayavaram, one can take the Tiruvarur road to reach Thiru Kannamangai .

Sthalapuranam
Goddess Lakshmi performed penance here to attain the Lord. It is believed that Thirupaarkadal Lord called in his security Vishwakshena and asked him to suggest a good day for their wedding. Legend has it that all the Devas congregated here to witness the wedding. They were so overwhelmed on seeing the Lord and Goddess Lakshmi together that they took the form of bees and decided to stay here ever after. To this day, one can find the bees in the Thaayar Sannidhi – a unique feature of this Divya Desam.

Krishna Mangala Kshetram

As Lakshmi’s wedding took place here at Thiru Kannamangai, this place is called Krishna Mangala Kshetram.
Special sculpture of Vaikuntanathan and ‘Vishnu on top of Garuda’ is a feature here. Chandran is said to have been relieved of his curse (by Devas) after his prayers to the Lord here.
