    Special feature:

    Sthala Puranam.

    Thiru Adhanoor called as Thiru = Respectable word in Tamil.

    Aaa = Cow, than, oor = Village, The lord gave Prathyaksham for Kaamadhenu, so this place is called as "Thiru Adhanoor".

    The lord gives seva along with Ranganayaki Thaayar in this place in Kidantha thirukkolam and having Marakkaal (Which is used as a measuring tool) below his head and a writing instrument, Ezhuthaani and Palm leaf in his left head.

    The lord who is suppose to be the Paramaathma, resides (Urayum) on all of the hearts, which is considered as the place of stay of him.

    He is seeing all the activities of Jeevaathma by going in depth to call to cell. As the seva of this God, he holds of the leaf (Oolai Chuvadi) and a writing instrument, he calculates the good and bad activities of all the Jeevathmaas and based on the activities, he is ruling the Jeevathmaas. Because of this reason this Emperumal is called as "Aandu Alakkum Iyan", as he keeps Marakkal, measuring instrument which is used as the measuring tool for measuring the good and bad activities.

    His right hand is the hand which serves all the necessary things needed for the world (Padi alakkum Kai (hand)) and left hand for writing.

    The Sun which is a rising above the Earth is one of the way he sees the world. The rays of the sun is the Eye of the God. All the things are happening only after his eyes are opened.

    He is not only serving for the Humans, (Mankind) but also to the flowers, rivers, mountains, animals etc. By going indepth into their body as sun rays, he is taking them along their way.

    Not even a single cell and its activities can escape from his Sun’s rays in this world.

    Because of reason, this Kshethram is called as "Aadhavanulla Oor", which is laterly called as "Adhanoor". Aadhavan means sun and at the same time as the name implies, the pushkarani here is Soorya (Soorya means Sun in Tamil) pushkarani.

    Being good (or) bad all the activities and the thinkings of a person should give him good and bad things. It will be even extended from his ancesstors also. What he does will be extended to their forth coming generation people. To write all this Good and bad activities calculations, he is having the writing tool is his hand.

    The Jeevathmaa's Karma palan is well explained by this perumal of this Thiru Aadhanoor shetram. The Emperumal is also called as "Padiyallakum Paramadhayalu".

    Only in this divya desam, the body (Thirumeni) of thiru mangai alwar reside inside the Garbhagriham (Where the moolavar is situated). But rest of the temples, alwars will be outside the Garbhagriham.

    This is one of the story said along with the sthalapuranam of this temple.
