Arulmigu Krishnaswami Temple's, Ambasamudram
The temple is very near the Ambasamudram bus stand which is 40 km from Tirunelveli.
Lord Venugopala, in his alluring beauty, appears playing the flute keeping his right leg slightly back. Divine snake Adisesha is above his head as an umbrella. Consorts Rukmini and Satyabama are by His side. He never parts with them and appears even during the Garudaseva, Mothers are with Him. As a custom, during the Theerthavari festival in Perumal temples, Chakkarathzhwar goes to river (here Tambirabarani) as Lord’s representative. Here Lord Himself comes to the river with His consorts. On the Vaikunda Ekadasi day too, Lord passes through Sorgavasal with His consorts only against tradition. As He is never away from them, He is praised as Nitya Kalayana Perumal – Perumal ever in a wedding style.
During the 9 days of Brahmmotsavam and on the day beforeVaikunda Ekadasi, Lord is dressed (Alankara) as Mohini the enticing woman. Devotees can have the darshan of Lord without Mothers only two days in a year.
The temple is situated on the northern bank of Tambiraparani. Six pujas ( 6 Kala puja as per rules both in Shiva and Vishnu temples) are observed in the temple. The idol of Lord Venugopala is made of Salagrama stone. Tirumanjanas are performed with oil and milk each day. Procession deity is but a replica of the presiding deity. He removes all the adverse aspects of the devotees caused by planetary effects. People offer Tirumanjanam to Lord on such days of the planets unfavourable to them offering vastras. Those facing Saturn effects pray with dil rice on Saturdays. Students pray with green pulses on Wednesdays to excel in education. Sri Anjaneya is in the front mandap facing north.
