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

Thiru Varagunamangai Perumal Temple, (Vijayaasana Perumal Temple), Natham, Thoothukudi
ThiruVaragunamangai Perumal Temple is one of the Nava Tirupathi, nine Hindu temples dedicated to Lord Vishnu located in Thiruchendur-Tirunelveli route, TamilnaduIndia in the banks of Thamiraparani river. All these 9 temples are classified as "Divya Desams", the 108 temples of Vishnu revered by the 12 poet saints, or Alwars.




Sri Vijayaasana Perumal Temple also called as Thiru Varaguna Mangai Perumal temple is located 1 km in the east of Srivaikundam at the place called Natham, Thiruchendur – Tirunelveli route of Tamilnadu. Among the Nava Tirupathi temple, it is 2nd. This is dedicated to the God Chandran (Planet Moon). Out of the 108 Divya Desam, it is 74th place.




There are nine sacred shrines in this Pandya region equal to those in the Chola region attributed to nine planets. As Lord Vishnu himself is acting as the nine planets in these places, there are no separate shrines for the Navagrahas the nine planets. Those facing any adverse aspect of a planet are advised to visit the Nava – nine Tirupathis for relief.




It would be difficult to catch buses for each such place causing more days to complete this pilgrimage. A cab can be hired to visit the places for completing the tour in a day. Those in Chennai can avail the services of Tamilnadu Tourism Development Corporation which is arranging the trip twice a month on the first and third Friday of the month. They can return by Wednesday morning. The Nava Tirupathis are related with the nine planets as Perumal himself is the planet of the particular place.
