Prominence of the Shrine : This is the fourteenth of among the 108 Dhivya Desams. Offering worship to the ‘Kalgarudan’ (Garuda made of stone) on Thursdays dispels all types of doshas. Perumal’s Garudaseva is popular in this temple. Kal Garudar is the most prominent feature of the temple. As per local legend, the sculptor who created the idol of Garuda got frustrated as the bird flew away each time a new image was prepared. In frustration, he threw a stone at Garuda, who got injured and decided to stay in the temple as “Kal Garuda”. The image of Kal Garuda is made of saligrama and is housed in the shrine outside the main sanctum. During festive procession, during the Tamil months of Margazhi (December–January) and Panguni (April - May), the festive images are carried out in procession in Kal Garuda. While only four people are needed to carry the idol of Garuda out of the shrine, it multiples to 8, 16, 32, and 64 people when the image is taken outside the temple. The image is believed to get heavier as it moves away from the temple. On the way back only 4 people are required to carry back. A hermit called Medhavi observed rigorous penance on the banks of the Manimuthu River to have Goddess Lakshmi as his daughter-in-law. In appreciation of his penance Lakshmi came out of ‘Parkadal’ (Sea of Milk) on a Friday of Panguni Month (Tamil calendar), also an auspicious day of Uthiram Star, under the Vanjula Tree on the bank of the river. She was called Vanjulavalli. She married the Lord Srinivasa Perumal. The place is called Krishnaranyam. The speciality is that only in this shrine Kalgaruda Seva is being held.
