Sri Annan perumal temple, Thiruvellakulam

About the temple

The temple is among the 108 divyadesams of Sri Vaishnavas and comes under Choza naatu divyadesams. The presiding deity is Srinivasa perumal or Annan perumal in standing posture and thayar in a seperate sannadhi is called Alarmel mangai thayar. There is a shrine for Kumudavalli nachiyar- the consort of Thirumangai azhwar as she was found here.

The Lord is considered to be the Annan (elder brother) of Lord Srinivasa of Tirupathi and hence devotees who are not able to go to Tirupathi pray here. Both the Lord and the Goddess have the same names as in Tirupathi.
