About the Temple
Thiruvengadamangalam Thiruvengadaperumal Devasthaanam History is one interesting field. When bringing to life the stories of the Omnipresent, History takes us to a different platform. Every temple has a history, the sthala varalaru, which is as mystical and mysterious as the one it hosts, 'The God'. Like every other temple, Our ThiruvengadaPerumal temple' too has a story.
The story of a common village erstwhile named 'Vengadamangalam' becoming spiritually redefined 'Thiruvengadamangalam'. It all started with the visit of a devotee to meet Mr.ThiruVenkatam Ravi, Panchayat leader of the village in the year 2012. The devotee expressed his desire to the Panchayat leader to build a temple for Lord Vishnu at the village. In his words, He had a vision of the Lord himself ordering him to do the same. At once, a meeting of the villagers was organized & the idea was voiced. The villagers had for a long time wanted a temple for Lord Narayana, after all their village was named after him. And hence, the idea was agreed upon unanimously.
Then it was learnt that 300 years back, the ancient residence of the Vengadamangalam village had allocated 5.5 acres of land with a pond for temple construction. This fact was looked into and place with such qualities was rounded up. With the blessings of the almighty, they sought the guidance of spiritual guru 'Parthasarathy Ramanujam' for naming their deity. Upon consulting and varied discussions, all concerned agreed to naming the main god as 'Thiruvengada Perumal' and the goddess was named 'Thiruvengada Lakshmi' naturally.
On July, 2012, under the star Rohini's presence & virtue, the founding stone of the shrine was laid. From then on, Poojas are being done religiously twice a day. Every ceremony and festival is celebrated with grace & grandeur. The construction of the temple is undergoing as per the visions of the devotee, the trustees and the sthapathy.
The myth around Vishnu is that Lord Narayana took various avatars for every Yuga to protect the Dharma. Starting from 'Thretha Yuga' & following onto 'Kretha' & 'Dwapara' Yuga, Lord Narayana has taken various avatars like Vamana, Parashurama & the greener Rama heading onto the bluish Krishna. In this Yuga, the Kali Yuga, Lord Vishnu is said to have taken a blackish form & idolized himself at 'Thirupathi' as 'Ezhumaliyaan'.
With this in mind, our temple is designed as a replica of the Thirumala Thirupathi devastana. The Vimana, God's Palace, is same as the Thirupathi Devastana & the Maha Mantapa is a magnificent eight pillared structure. Right next to it lays the shrine of 'Garudazhvar'. To the north is the Holy pond, stretching to a 2.5 acre vast expanse. The Boundary of the village is marked by the temple for 'Thiruvengada Lakshmi'. There is also news that a brindavan will be built soon.
Come and be a part of history in the making. Service to God's deed is always welcome.
