Thirukkaar Vaanar Temple History:
The Perumal in this sthalam is Thirukkaar vaanar. Kaar means clouds and Neer means rain (or) water. God explains to the world that the water in this world is the resemblance of him and the Kaar (the black clouds which give rain) to the world is also one of his reflection and clouds which are found in the sky is also the reflection.
Without water, the World cannot survive. So, he comes to the World as rain and makes all the things to survive.
So, Sriman Narayanan explains that he himself is the black cloud that give the rain for the humans and all things to survive. So, this perumal is called as “Thirukkaar Vaanakkalvar”.
