new kireedam for Thiruputkuzhi Sri Vijayaraghava Perumal

            “Thiruputkuzhi”  Divyadesam is situated on the Chennai Bangalore High Road – around 90 km off Chennai.  As you pass through Sriperumpudur, on way to Vellore, you would pass the bridge known as ‘Vellai gate’ which would take you to Kanchi.  Around 10 kms after this, is Baluchetty Chathiram.  Hardly half a kilometer from the main road, is the temple sung by Thirumangai Azhwar in Periya Thirumozhi and Periya Thirumadal. 

திருப்புட்குழி திவ்யதேசம் சென்னையில் இருந்து சுமார் 90 கி மீ தொலைவில் உள்ளது.
இங்கு பெருமாள் ஜடாயுவுக்கு (புள்)  மோக்ஷம் கொடுத்த திருத்தலம் ஆனதால் திருப்புட்குழி !   குளக்கரையில் ஜடாயுவுக்கு சன்னதி உள்ளது.   உள்ளே மூலவர் விஜயராகவப் பெருமாள்  பரமபதத்தில் இருக்கும் நிலையில் வீற்றிருந்த திருகோலத்தில் சேவை சாதிக்கிறார்.  மூலவர் ஜடாயு சம்ஸ்காரம் செய்யும் தாபத்தை தாங்க முடியாமல் ஸ்ரீதேவியும் பூதேவியும் இடம் வலமாக மாறி எழுந்து உள்ளனர்.   தாயார் : மரகத வல்லி தாயார்.

Legend has it that Lord Rama did moksha kainkaryam to ‘Jadayu’ – the bird who fought valiantly against Ravana when he was abducting Sita and lost his life.  There is a sannathi for Jadayu before the temple tank.  ‘Pul” is bird and this sthalam is known as “Thiru-pul-kuzhi – thiruputkuzhi’.  Unusually, the dwajasthambam (the flag post) is situated outside the Temple and the main Gopuram lies after the the dwajasthambam. 

There are many types of kainkaryams – as could be observed in divyaesams and other temples, there is Archaga kainkaryam, parcharakam, sripadham thangi, arulicheyal, veda vinnappam, thirumadapalli and more. Then bakthas submit floral garlands, ornaments, vasthrams and more; upkeep, maintenance, repair and renovation of temples is also important. 

For Sri Vijayaraghava Perumal on the grand occasion of Sahasrabdi (1000th Thiruvavathara mahothsavam) of Udayavar, a baktha from Tripliane (Mr Narayanan, s/o late Ekkadu Ramaswami Iyengar) is offering a stone-studded kireedam [crown] tastefully made.  Perumal will adorn it tomorrow.  Had the fortune of seeing the crown at his residence and here are couple of photos of the same
