Thirupullani Temple Mythology and History

The story goes that King Dasaratha did Putrakamesti Yagam and Nagaprathishta here in this Divya Desam. This is where Vibhishana gave up and gave himself to Lord Rama. Lord Rama fasted for seven days while lying on Kusha grass in the Sayana pose. He did this to ask the ocean god to help him find a way to go to Lanka. This is where Samudra gave up and gave Lord Rama his life. It’s the same as when Lord Rama used monkeys to help him build the Sethu Bridge. Out of the 108 Divya Desam, this is one.

Pullavar, Kalavar, and Kanvar were three monks who were very devoted to Lord Vishnu during the Krithayugam times. Asuras were always messing with their snacks. This is why Lord Vishnu came to Earth as a Banyan tree, killed the Asuras, and made everything right again. This is where Lord Vishnu showed his Viswaroobam.

The Lord is shown here resting on the grass in the position of Sayana. The word “Anai” means “Lord,” “Thru” means “grass,” and “Pul” means “grass.” There were two main gods: Goddess Sri Padmasani Thayar and Thiru.

People say that Impressed Aadhi Jagannatha Perumal blessed him with a bow after praying to Lord Rama. The name of this spot is Saranagathi Kshetram.

It was written in Ayodhya Kandam that Bharata gave up his life and begged Lord Rama to go back to the Kingdom.

In Aranya Kandam, it says that Sages gave up their lives and turned to the Lord to get safety from Asuras.

In Kiskinda Kandam, it was said that Sugriva gave up and turned himself into Rama to get safety from his brother Vali. At this point, Samudra gives up and gives Lord Rama his life.
