Sri Ulagalantha Perumal Temple

About place:

In the second prakaram of Thiru Ooragam Ulahalandha Perumal Temple behind the 16 Pillar Mandapam Devotees can worship the Shrine of Thiruneeragam where the ALMIGHTY is Blessing as Neeragathan – Jagadesswara Perumal under Jagadeeswara Vimanam in his standing posture facing east. This is the palce where Markandeya Mahirishi, father in law of Oppiliyappan, once underwent a penance on the banks of River Badhra towards Paranthaman to get his Prathyaksjham as “Aalilai Krishnan” – Child Krishna on the Banyan Leaf. Pleased Paranthaman with his Maya recreated the Pralaya Scene again and provided the Sage his Darshan of Aalilai Krishnan on the flood. Eventhough it is one of the 108 Divyadesams, the Shrine is very small and there is no any clear information about the Temple Vimanam, Gopuram and the Utsava Murthy. Thayar is being worshipped as Nilamangaivalli Nachiyar.
