DevanathaSwamy Temple

This temple is held in high esteem and veneration by devotees because of the special association of the great Vaishnavite Acharya SRI NIGAMANTHA MAHA DESIKA born in 13th century. Sri Desika chose to stay here for about 40 years magnetized by the divine beauty of the Presiding Deity of this ancient temple and the place. It was here in OUSHADAGIRI (HILLOCK) Sri Desika performed penance to invoke GARUDA for initiation into HAYAGRIVA MANTRA when the scholar flourished to full divinity to become the peerless NIGAMANTHA MAHA DESIKA. It is the glory of this place that there is a temple to Lord Lakshmi Hayagriva (Mahavishnu with horse face) in the Hill which is not found anywhere else in the country. The Lakshmi Hayagriva is the Lord for Gananam. Arulmigu Desikan, the Kandaavatharam of Thirivengadamudaiyan appeared in Thoopul near Kanchipuram. There is a belief that Arulmigu Desikan, lived in Thiruvanheedirepuram for 40 years. Hayagrivar Archamoorthy, the Garuda bhagavan gave the required things and blessed him. Arulmigu Hayagrivar appeared before Arulmigu Desikan and thought the all Vedasasthirams in Oushadagiri (hillock). Even now we can see the Lord Hayagrivamoorthy, the God that Maha Desikan worshipped in Arulmigu Devanatha shrine. We can see the Thirumaligai of Maha Desikan and the well made by lord Desikan in this temple. Maha Desikan was known as Sarvathanthira Suthathirar by arguing with the sculptor Rajan and made his own sculputer. Every year during the month of Puratasi (September-October) a festival is conducted for Maha Desikan.
