Vamana Trivikrama Avathara Sthalam. It was here that Mudal Azhwars (poigai, Bhoodath and peiyazhwar’s) met one night in a small room. They felt the presence of one more person and found the Lord and Piratti(Lakshmi) and composed the First three Tiruvanddadi in praise of Him. This is one of the five Krisharanya Kshetras. Mahabali’s pride bit the dust in this kshetra.
About 3 kms from Tirukkoavalur station on the Villupuram Katpadi route.
There is a Hayagriva Sannadhi at Aaushadagiri hillock where Swami Desika worshipped Garuda and Hayagriva. Lord Hayagriva appeared and blessed Swami Desika. There is a Sannadhi for Swami Desika in the temple. The Theerthavari and Malai uthsavam during purattasai (Sept – Oct) are important festivals. As this sthala was conceived and constructed by Adisesha, the place is called Tiru Aheendrapuram. Garuda and Adisesha brought the Vraja (Garudanadhi) and Patala Ganga (Sesha) Theerthams for the Lord and are used for Abhishek and for making Prasadams respectively.
