Oothukkadu Sthalapuranam

Respected devotees of Lord Sri Krishna,my humble salutations to you. I stand before you as a humble messanger of Lord Sri Krishna to speak about the holy history behind the origin of Sri Kalinga Narthana Perumal Temple, Oothukkadu. For the past thousand years Oothukkadu has been blessed by the heavenly presence of Lord Sri Krishna, as it is here that the Lord has chosen as His heavenly abode. With His everlasting presence, the Lord, after enacting His drama with His devotees, continues to bless His devotees by not only fulfilling their prayers, but also redeem them of their woes and sorrows and finally grants them moksha by merging their athma with him.

Sri Kalinganarthana Perumal

This historic temple is 1000 years old with Sri Veda Narayana Perumal as presiding diety. At its early stage, the temple premise was very small. This temple was renovated to its present form by the King Nalakonda Chozhan after the advent of the Utsavar idol, Sri Kalinga Narthana Perumal.

Oothukkadu Venkatakavi

Mahakavi Venkatasa Subbhayyar, popularly known as Venkatakavi, who lived in the 17th century spent his entire life in front of the thulasi mada composing a number of melodious songs in praise of this deity. Due to the extreme devotion of Sri Venkata Kavi to the Lord, he is believed to be a reincarnation of Sage Naradha who witnessed the Lord's dance in the village

Sri Sundarrama Battachar

Hare Krishna! Without the blessing of Sri Kalinga Narthana Perumal, nobody can write or speak about his divine self. For the past thousand years my forefathers have been dedicatedly offering pooja to Sri Kalinga Narthana Perumal. I am deeply indebted to my forefathers, without whom I would not have got the divine opportunity of performing pooja to Sri Kalinga Narthana Perumal.
