Legend / Local stories

That Mother Sita was enticed by a deer of rare radiance and her pursuing Lakshmana to get it for her and fell abducted by Ravana when Lakshmana went after the deer is a story known to every devout Hindu and scholars of this epic. This is the place from where Anjaneya set out in search of Sita with the ring of Lord Rama and returned back to him with her Choodamani for identification. Honouring Anjaneya for his heroic and devout deeds, people built the temple for him and later installed Lord Srinivasa Perumal with Mother Mahalakshmi on his beautiful chest.

Presiding Deity is Srinivasa Perumal and Mothers are Sridevi and Bhudevi. Sthala Vrikshams are Tulsi and Bodhi Tree. Theertham is Rama Pushkarani. The significance of the temple, only in this temple in India, is the festival deity Anjaneya telling Lord Rama with his two right hand fingers “I have found Mother Sita”. The Panchaloka idols are kept in Tiruvarur temple for security reasons. Sri Garuda Bhagwan standing before the Balipeeta on the east entrance of the temple is facing west with his attention fixed on Lord Srinivasa Perumal.
