#TamilNaduTemples 🚩

Vaishnava Nambi Temple is located in Thirukurungudi, Tamil Nadu, and one among the 108 Divya Deshams. Mahavishnu is worshipped as Vaishnava Nambi and Lakshmi Devi as Kurungudivalli Nachiyar.
Temple is also called Dakshina Vaikuntam
Sthala Puranam says that, there lived a Peasant Nambaduvan, who was great Vishnu Bhakta. He was a Harijan and couldn't enter the Temple
Dwajasthambam of the temple obstructed his Darshan, so Mahavishnu asked Dwajasthambam to move leftwards
One day while walking towards the temple, he was stopped by an asura who was hungry & wanted to eat Nambaduvan. Nambaduvan asked permission from asura to worship Mahavishnu and then, asura could eat him. Mahavishnu (Nambi )was pleased by his devotion and came outside the temple.
While returning, Mahavishnu appeared as a Brahmin and tried to convince him to go away from the asura. But, Nambaduvan wanted to keep his promise and went near rakshasa.  The asura was pleased that Nambaduvan returned to him and promised that he wouldn't kill him.
Nambaduvan sang glorious songs there of Mahavishnu and gifted those to asura. Suddenly Rakshasa roopam was changed to a Brahmin, whose name was Soma Sharma. Panguni Bramosthavam, and Karthigai Kaisiga Ekathasi is celebrated in a grand manner here.
