Thiru Koshitioor, and Thiru Mogur temple

  1. Thiru koshtioor:

    This is One of 108 Divya Desam. The place is about 10 kms from Thirupatoore.

    Main Deity: Uragamellanian in reclined posture, urchavar Sowmyanarayana perumal in standing posture and Goddess Thiru Mamagal Nachiar.Teertham is Deva pushkarani.

    Importance: The temple is of four floors. Main deity is in sleeping posture in first floor, to the second and third floor we see deities in sitting and standing posture, and the final fourth floor is the terrace from where Ramanajur announced the secret moola mantra of OM NAMO NARAYANA for the benefit of one and all.

    We see Ramanujar and Thirukoshitur Nambi sculptures facing the city in front. Indra and Kadamba muni were blessed by lord of this place.

  2. Thiru Mogur: Kalamega perumal temple.

    One of 108 Divya Desam. The temple is 13 kms from Madurai, and 9 kms south of Melur. Here the Pushkarani is known as Swetha pushkarani and vilwam is sthala vruksham of the temple.

    Main Deity: is Kala mega perumal and his consort known as Mohana valli thayar"

    Sthala puranam says Vishnu took, mohini roopam to distribute the nector to devas, and the place was originally known as Mohanoor.

    Importance: Nammazwar attained moksha after worshiping Kalamega perumal here. Chakkratazwar is something unique here. Manthras are incarnated on it, and the thiruvadi {padam} is rotating, which means at any point, he is ready to help one who worships him.

    Chakkratazwar represent Sudarshanar. At the back of Sudarshanar we see Narashimar and he is called as Narashima sudarshnar.

    Near the entrance of the temple, in a separate sanctum, we see pallikonda nadhar {Sleping posture} known as ksheerabdhi nadhar, both Sridevi and Bhoodevi thayar are seen near the leg side with their hands near the foot of perumal in praying posture.
