Kanchi Thiruooragam Pavithrotsavam


On August 24, 2012, poornahuthi of Ulagalantha Perumal Pavithrothsavam took place at Thiruooragam, Kanchipuram.

The Ulagalantha Perumal temple, is situated just a kilometer north of Kanchipuram bus stand in periya kanchipuram and kamashi amman temple is situated close to this temple.

As Uragam signifies Snake and Lord Vishnu gave darshan once again to Bali as the Serpent Lord, this place came to be called Ooragam and the Lord came to be known as Ooragathaan.

A description of Thiruvikrama: Over 30 feet in height Left leg is seen lifted at a right angle(to the body), parallel to the ground. Right leg is seen placed on Mahabali’s head 2 fingers on his left hand stretched out referring to the two steps he took to measure this world 1 stretched finger on his right hand indicates the question the Lord posed to MahaBali as to where he could place his 3rd step. The gigantic Ulagalantha Perumal is special to Kanchipuram and a Lord of this size, and in this form, cannot be seen in any other Divya Desam.
