Divyadesam is located at a distance of about 3km from Swamimalai near Kumbhakonam in between the rivers Kaveri and
Kollidam. This shrine is also referred to as Bhargava Kshetram. Located nearby is the
Divya Desam Tiruppullambhootankudi.
The Moolavar here is Aandalakkumaiyan (Aadanoorai Aandu Alakkum Aiyan) in a reclining
posture, facing East. Taayaar here is Ranganayaki. The Vimanam and the Theertham as well
as Taayaar bear the same names as in Srirangam.
Also in the sanctum are images of Kamadhenu and Tirumangaialwar. The image of Vishnu is
depicted as bearing a palm manuscript, a writing device and a measuring device.
The temple: with a three tiered Raja gopuram and 2 prakarams has an
east facing sanctum. Ranganaayaki taayaar is housed in a separate sanctum. The stala
vriksham here is the patali tree.
Legend has it that Kamadhenu worshipped Vishnu here. This shrine is
also known as Bhargava kshetram and the stala puranam references legends from the
Bhrahmanda puraanam. The name Aadanoor arises from the legend that Kamadhenu offered
worship to Vishnu here. Legend also has it that Agni the fire God offered worship at the
shrine here. Given the references to Aadi Rangeswaram in the Bhrahmaanda puraanam, this is
considered a hoary shrine that predates the Srirangam temple.
Festivals: Two worship services are offered each day and Vaikuntha
Ekadasi is celebrated here.
