Thiruchemponsey (Perarulaalan Perumal Temple), Thirunangur, Nagapattinam

Thiruchemponsey (Perarulaalan Perumal Temple), Thirunangur, Nagapattinam
Thiruchemponsey or Perarulaalan Perumal Temple is dedicated to Hindu god Vishnu located in Thirunangur, a village in the outskirts of Sirkazhi in the South Indian state of Tamilnadu. Constructed in the Dravidian style of architecture, the temple is glorified in the Divya Prabandha, the early medieval Tamil canon of the Azhwar saints from the 6th–9th centuries AD. It is one of the 108 Divyadesam dedicated to Vishnu, who is worshipped as Perarulalan and his consort Lakshmi as Allimalar Nachiyar.



It is one among the eleven divyadesams of Thirunangur Tirupathis and is closely associated with Thirumangai Alvar. The temple is open from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m and has four daily rituals at various times of the day. The Thirumangai Azhwar Mangalasasana Utsavam celebrated annually during the Tamil month of Thai is the major festival of the temple during which the festival images of the eleven Thirunangur Tirupathis are brought on mount designed like Garuda, called Garuda Vahana, to Thirunangur.



Among the 108 Divya Desams, this is the only Divyadesam where the Perumal himself gave the money to construct his own temple. It is located under ½ km east of Purushothama Divya Desam. Sempon Arangar is said to have come from Uraiyur. Hence the Lord here has 2 Goddesses similar to Azhagiya Manavaalan of Uraiyur. This sthalam is called with other names like Hema Rangam, Nagapuri and Nangai Nagaram. This divyadesam is situated within and at North-eastern side of Thiru Nangur.
