Thiruneeragam Divya Desam - Jagadeeswara Perumal

Sri VishnuMeditation: I meditate on Sri Jagadeeswarar at Thiruneeragam who showed sage Markandeya the scene of the pralaya (deluge), himself taking the form of a small child lying on a banyan leaf in the midst of the water of deluge.

Thiruneeragam Divya Kshetra: Thiruneeragam is a Divya Desam whose glory was sung by Thirumangai Alvar. Thiruneeragam is situated inside the Ulagalanda Perumal temple of Kanchipuram. According to legend, the Lord showed sage Markandeya the scene of the pralaya (deluge) here, himself taking the form of a small child lying on a banyan leaf in the midst of the water of deluge.
Note: There are four Divya Desams within the Ulagalanda Perumal temple of Kanchipuram. They are Thiru Ooragam, Thiruneeragam, Thirukaragam and Thirukarvanam.

Penance of sage Markandeya: Sage Markandeya performed penance on the bank of a river wishing to see the scene of the great deluge (pralaya). The Lord created the scene of deluge out of his power of Maya and showed it to sage Markandeya. The Lord himself took the form of a small child lying on a banyan leaf in the midst of the water of deluge.

Image: The image of Lord here is in standing posture facing east.

• Thiruneeragam is located in Kanchipuram in the Kanchipuram district of Tamil Nadu.
