Ariyalur Kodandarama Swamy Temple Timings

Ariyalur Kodandarama Swamy Temple or Sri Venkatesa Perumal Temple is a ancient temple in Ariyalur town in Tamil Nadu. The presiding deities are Venkatesa Perumal in Standing Posture Facing East Direction. A Separate Sannidhi is there for Alarmel Mangai Thaayar. However, the temple is popularly known after the original deity as the Kothandarama Temple of Ariyalur. Sri Rama is seen along with Sita and Lakshmana in a single peedam.

The temple dates back over 1000 years built by a Chief of Ariyalur. The temple was renovated by Cholas. There is Pushkarini in the temple known as Kodanda Pushkarini.

An interesting feature at the temple is the exquisite over 6 feet tall Dasavaratha Moorthy on either side of the Dasavathara Mandapa, built by Vijaya Oppila Mazhava Raya. In recognition of this, one finds his Moorthy at the entrance of the mandapa. North Facing Lord Narasimha is seen in four forms inside the Dasavathara Mandapa- Lakshmi Narasimha, Yoga Narasimha, Hiranyavatha Narasimha and Prahalada Narasimha. One finds Lord Narasimha with sharp fingernails that tore apart the Asura, while his foot is placed on the slain Asura King Hiranyakashipu whose son Prahalada is seen in a calm, devoted standing posture.Ariyalur Sri Kodandarama Swamy Temple
