Neeratta Mandapam at Thiruvallikkeni Divyadesam

At  Thiruvallikkeni divyadesam – there are some special places : Nammalwar sannathi [Vahana mantapam]; Gangaikondan mandapam,  Peyalwar Temple, Nampillai sannathi, Thavana Uthsava Bungalow, Vasantha bungalow, Kannadi pallakku aria [the last two non-existent now] – the places where Perumal takes rests on different occasions.  There is also the  Neeratta mandapam, exactly opposite to Periya Thiruther.  Sri Andal during the Neeratta Uthsavam in Margazhi has thirumanjanam here.

During the annual float festival [Theppothsavam] on day 1, Sri Parthasarathi has mandakapadi at the neeratta mandapam.

There were so many shops and other encroachments nearer this mandapam.  During the recent Mahasamprokshanam in June 2015, the place was cleaned up and now bears a distinctly different look.  Here are photos of the mantap; Sri Parthasarathi  Perumal having rest at the Mantap and Andal neerattam.  Earlier the entrance was on the Northern side, from now on, it is on Eastern side.
