History of the Temple

Lord Brahma, the creator of earth and human beings, did penance in this village to seek the blessings of Lord Vishnu. Hence this village is known as Thisaimuganseri also known as Iyyempettaiseri. Lord Vishnu appeared before Brahma and asked Him the reasons for his penance. Brahma requested Lord Vishnu to show His original posture, as he sits in his Abode – “Paramapatham” to the people living on the earth.

The main deity is Paramapadanathar. His Consort is Kanakavalli Thayar. There are separate sannidhis for Kanakavalli Thayar and Sri Kothandaramar with his Consort Sita Devi, brother Lakshmana and Anjaneya. This temple is more than 700 years old. There is an inscription on the backside wall of the sanctum sanctorum which says that in 1881, some 10 persons had performed Thiruppani to this temple.

The remarkable aspect of this temple is that Lord Paramapadanathar

is sitting on Adiseshan that encircles Him. Generally, in other vaishnavite temples, we have seen the Lord in a lying posture on Adhiseshan.

Here, in Thisaimuganseri Village, Lord Paramapadanathar is sitting with His right leg folded and the left one pressing the earth to get up from his seat to instantly reach the devotee who prays the Lord to save him from all his sufferings. His consorts Sri Devi and Bhoomi Devi are also seated either side of the Lord on Adiseshan.
