Booking Information


Neela Megha Perumal Temple in Thirukannapuram, a village in the outskirts of Nagapattinam in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu, is dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu. It is one of the 108 Divyadesam dedicated to Vishnu, who is worshipped as Neelamegha Perumal and his consort Lakshmi as Tirukannapura Nayagi.


The temple is believed to have been built by the Cholas with later additions from the Thanjavur Nayaks. A granite wall surrounds the temple, enclosing all its shrines and three of its seven bodies of water.


This temple is one of the Panchakanna (Krishnaranya) Kshetrams and considered the foremost among the five temples. The temple is the place where Vishnu is believed to have represented himself in all the eight forms.
