Tirumangaiazhwar (One of the 12 Alwars – 7th to 10th Centuries CE) has sung 10 hymns of Divya Prabhandham here at Thiru Nagapattinam in praise of the Lord.


Aadhisesha was accepted as the Lord’s bed here at Thiru Nagapattinam. A young prince, Dhruvan, performed penance and when the lord appeared on his Garuda Vahana, fascinated by his beauty forgot what he wanted and asked the lord to stay in this place forever. Thus the Thiru Nagapattinam temple was built.


Soundararaja Perumal Temple, Thiru Nagapattinam is inside Nagapattinam town.
