Appeal For Perunkarunai Selva Nambi ThiruAvathara Utsavam



Srimathe Ramanujaya Nama:

Perunkarunai, a village in Ramanathapuram District of Tamilnadu is the Avathara sthalam of Selva Nambi, the Vaishnavite Acharya, who helped Sri Periyazhwar to establish Sri Narayana Parathvam at Pandian sabhai and also the preceptor of the Pandya King Srimaran Srivallabhan. Selva Nambi recited the Bhagavatha Purana to the king Vikrama Pandiya and concluded that those who listen to this Purana will be saved from all evils and “That this dharma should be understood by everyone in the future”. Having listened to this recital, the king was blessed with a son Sri Vallabhan (who was known as Vallabha deva). Delighted king built the Varadaraja Perumal temple in Perunkarunai. He also donated several villages for the maintenance and upkeep of the temple and the festivities at the temple.

In order to make this temple not go extinct to the next generation, Asthigas gathered and formed a trust named Sri Sundara Varadharaja Perumal Seva Sangam (Reg. No: 30/2013) and are looking to perform Various Kainkaryam

The trust was incepted in 2013 and following are the kainkaryams performed till date.


Ø  Electrification to the entire temple

Ø  Punar prathistai of Sri.Selva Nambi Utsavar


Ø  New Archagar Appointed, maintained and monthly incentive of Rs.5000/- being given to the archagar


Ø  Arrangement of safety gate inside the temple

Ø  Utsavar will be brought back to this sannidhi

Ø  Bore well Kainkaryam initiated inside the temple and in progress.






The trust has also taken up the celebration of Sri Selva Nambi Thirunakshatra Utsavam Kainkaryam from 2013. Glimpses of the Utsavam in 2013 can be had from the following links:
