Sri Devaraja perumal temple - Thiru Naimisaranyam

About the place

Naimisaranyam is among the eight swayam vyakhta kshetrams and among the 108 divyadesams of Sri Vaishnavas. The place is also known as Nimkhar or Nimsar and is on the banks of the river Gomati. Here the Lord is in the form of forest. The Lord is known as Devaraja perumal or Sri Hari and the thayar is called Sri Hari Lakshmi thayar. The Vyasa ghat temple is located on the banks of the river. There are two pushkarnis- the Gomathi river and Chakra theertham.

One of the Ahobila mutt jeeyar attained paramapadham in this divyadesam and hence there is a sannadhi in the Ahobila Mutt premises here.

There are also one Balaji temple nearby.
