Kothandaramar Temple, Kadayam, Thirunelveli
Kothandaramar Temple is dedicated to Hindu God Vishnu located at Kadayam Village in Thirunelveli District of Tamilnadu. Kothandaramar Temple was built hundreds of years ago by the Pandya Kings as a memoir for the worship made by the legendary Dasaratha King at Nithya Kalyani Ambal temple.
King Dasaratha was praying for a progeny in his family, thereafter he begot the God himself in the form of Sree Ramar. In this temple, the Garuda the "Periya Thiruvadi" (instead of Sree Hanuman), is standing before the Kothanda Ramar which is quite rare. The perennial river flowing just near Thalaimalai Ayyan temple is also named Rama Nadhi.
