Sri Uthara Ranganatha temple – Pallikonda

Sri Uthara Ranganatha temple – Pallikonda

Ambaraj, the king of Chaturvedimangalam, today's Pallikonda believed that one could realize the meaning of life only through the worship of Lord Vishnu and, he started worshipping the Lord. Years rolled by, the king continued to worship the Lord but the Lord didn't appear before him. Dejected, the king decided to end his life. While he attempted suicide, a heavenly voice from the sky, the voice of Lord Vishnu told him to continue his worship promising to bless him with a vision of Himself at the appropriate time. The king felt extremely happy and continued his pujas.

History of the temple

A debate came up at Brahma's court hall on which was the greatest asset - the courage of Goddess Parvathy or the wealth of Goddess Lakshmi or the wisdom of Goddess Saraswathy. At the end of the debate, Brahma declared that wealth was the most precious of the three assets and projected Lakshmi as supreme. At this, Saraswathi, the wife of Brahma deserted her husband in a rage of anger. Brahma, upset over his wife's behavior felt handicapped because he could not perform yagna without his wife. So, he married a woman by name Savithri and conducted the yagna. Saraswathi's anger intensified on learning about this. Brahma requested Lord Vishnu to appease Saraswathi and to reunite the couple. In the meantime, Saraswathi took the form of a river, called Vegavathi and flowed vigorously. The present name of the river is Palar. Pallikonda is the place where Lord Vishnu first lied down across the river to stop the flow. But Saraswathi bypassed Him adjacent to His feet and moved on. The Lord then lied at another spot across the river to check its flow. Saraswathi bypassed Him again above His head and moved on. And again, the Lord rested reclining at another spot but here Saraswathi was not able to move further beyond the Lord. After this incident, the Lord came back to Pallikonda and appeared before the king. Ambaraj requested the Lord to grant boon for unmarried people and the separated couples visiting the sthala as the sthala had the glory of uniting Brahma and Saraswathi. Lord Vishnu granted the wish of the king.

If those waiting for marriage pray to Lord Ranganatha at this temple, they get married soon and similarly, the separated couples are reunited if they visit this sthala and pray to the Lord, the devotees say. The place where Lord Vishnu first lied down across the river Vegavathi is called Pallikonda. The second place is Thiruparkadal, near Kaveripakkam on the Bangalore highway and Yadodhkari, near Kancheepuram is the third place. At all the three sthalas, the presiding deity Rangnatha has been portrayed in a reclining posture.
