Sathyamurthy Perumal Rock Cut Temple

 

 

 

 

 

Sathyamurthy Perumal Temple is located at Thirumayam in Pudukottai District. The temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu.  This beautiful rock cut temple is among the 108 divyadesams of Sri Vaishnavas and comes under Pandiya naatu divyadesams. The temple is inside a huge fort and adjoining is the Sathyagiriswarar temple of Lord Shiva. The presiding deity is Sathyagiri nathan/Sathyamoorthy perumal with prayoga chakra and shanku in his hands and is swayambu moorthy.

 

Adjoining it is the sannadhi for Meyyappar perumal who is lying on Adiseshan and gives darshan in sayana kolam. Meyyappar perumal is similar to Lord Ranganatha at Srirangam but is really huge in comparison. Also in the sannadhi are chitragupta, dharmaraj, brahma, several devas, rishis and asuras. Bhoomi Devi thayar appears close to his feet. There is a seperate sannadhi for Ujjeevana thayar.
