Thirukoivilur temple
HISTORY OF THE TEMPLE:
A king by name Mahabali, hosted a yaha to get the power much more than others, with the help of Sukirachari. To let his ego down, Vishnu appeared there disgused and asked him for "dhana" for land of three feet. Due to his donating nature, the king accepted for it, unknowing that the disgusted man is Vishnu. The vishnu taking the opportunity kept gaint leep, with first leg in earth and second leg in sky. and asked the king, where to keep the third step. on realising the presence of Vishnu, Mahabali felt ashamed and replies that there is no place with him other than his head. Vishnu kept his feet on the head. Due to the weight , Mahabali drowned in the ground. Vishnu granted pardon to him and blessed him.

In this sthalam only, Naalayira Divya Prabandham was explained to the world and it can be said that it is the place of origin of it. The Moolavar of this sthalam is Thiruvikraman. The Perumal is also called as "Dahaleesan". Moolavar in Nindra, Nadantha (Ulagalantha) kolam facing East direction and his right leg lifted upwards towards the sky. And the great and a special thing is that the Sangu, which will be usually on the left hand is on the right hand and the Chakkaram which will be on the right hand is on the left hand.

Location :Thirukovilur 35kms from both Villupuram and Thiruvannamalai. The best possible route at this point of time seems to be from Villupuram.
