Thiru Varagunamangai Perumal Temple, (Vijayaasana Perumal Temple), Natham, Thoothukudi - Connectivity

Thiru Varagunamangai Perumal Temple, (Vijayaasana Perumal Temple), Natham, Thoothukudi - Connectivity
This temple is part of “Nava Thirupathi”. There are few buses to “Sri Vaikundam” from Tirunelveli bus stand and Thiruchendur. First you can visit Sri Vaikundam and next is Azhwar thiru nagar which is 5 KM from Sri Vaikundam. After this you can reach “Thirukkolur” (3KM) and move on to “Thenthiruperai” which is 5KM. Then if you travel another 10 KM you can reach Perungulam. After finishing Dharshan at “Perungulam”, you need to go to “Rettai Thirupathi “which has two Vishnu temples. There are no buses to reach this temple though it is only 2 KM from main road. So you need to go to Eral from Perungulam and go by auto to “Rettai Thirupathi”. Then you can reach “Thiruppulingudi” (7KM) and in another one KM you can reach the last Nava Thirupathi called “Natham”.
Please note: As many of these places are villages it is better to travel on your vehicle than public transport.
The temple is just 2 kms away from Sri Vaikuntam divyadesam. Nearest station is Srivaikundam on the Tirunelveli - Thiruchendur route and nearest railhead is Tirunelveli junction. Taxi from Tirunelveli to cover Nava Tirupathi Divya Desams will cost Rs.800-1000/-
The nearest airport is Tuticorin (24.6 Km). Nearest Major Airport to the temple is Madurai Airport which is 156 km away from the temple. Srivaikundam railway station is situated on the Tirunelveli-Thiruchendur line. All passenger trains from Tirunelveli stop at this station. The temple is about 2 miles from the railway station.
