I was fortunate enough to have the dharshan of Sri Veeranarayana Perumal of Kattumannar Koil, when I went for the dharshan of Paadal
Shiva Sthalangal, near Kattumannarkoil. petra
It is the avathara sthalam of Nathamuni and his grandson Alavanthar. As per the Sri Veeranarayanaperumal's instruction Naathamuni collected back to this world all the verses of naalyera divyaprabantham written by alwars, which were lost. The temple is facing east, with a tank in front. It is said that Veeranam lake is named after this Perumal.
