Welcome to Srivilliputhur Andal Temple S
Srivilliputtur ‘OH’. The very name kindles our souls. It occupies the foremost place in the 108 Divya Desams. It has a glorious past. Both VISHNUCHITTAR who had been affectionately called “PERIA ALWAR” because of his love and dedication to LORD KRISHNA and his divine daughter ANDAL who stands for the unification of the Microcasm and Macrocasm were born here. The legend is that the Vaishnavites will prostrate before the person who utter the name of Srivilliputtur. Srivilliputhur Andal Temple Srivilliputhur Andal Temple
