About the temple
The temple is among the 108 divyadesams of Sri Vaishnavas under the Pandiya Naatu divyadesams. It is the third among the Nava thirupathis along the Thamirabharani river. The presiding deity is Bhoomipalaka perumal in Bhujanga sayanam and the utsavar is called Kaichina Vendhar perumal. Lord Brahma is seated on a lotus, the stalk of which emerges from the Lord's navel. Thayars of this sthalam are Malarmagal nachiyar, Poomagal nachiyar and Pulinguduvalli thayar. Lord Indra is said to have been relieved from Brahma hatya dosham at this sthalam. To see both the thirupaadam (feet) of the Lord, we have to see through the small window in the outer prakaram. The temple represents the Buddan sthalam in the Nava graha sthalams of Nava tirupathi.
