Maduramangalam Vaikunta Perumal

The presiding deity of the Maduramangalam temple is Sri Vaikunta Perumal with his consorts Sridevi and Bhoomi Devi. There is a separate shrine for Sri Kamalavalli Thayar.

This is the birthplace of Sri Ramanujar’s first cousin Sri Embar. They were both students of Sri Yadavaprakashar at Thiruputkuzhi. It was Sri Embar who saved Sri Ramanujar’s life when Yadavaprakashar tried to kill him due to difference of opinion over the teachings.

After following Saivism for some time, Sri Embar came back as Sri Ramanujar’s disciple and followed Vaishnavism till the end. He was the one who taught Parasar Bhattar the teachings of Sri Ramanuja to make him Udayavar’s successor.

The people of Maduramangalam firmly believe that any snake or poisonous insect will not harm anyone. They also say that Aadiseshan is protecting the jewels of Swamy Embar inside the temple locker.

The temple is about 65 km from Chennai and around 20 km from Sriperumbudur, near Sunguvar Chatram.
