More on Krishnar Koil and it's sthala puraanam
******************************************************

In the years of 1890s, Sri Vaishnavas living around Malleswaram Area headed by Vaikuntavaasi Sri U.Ve.Singaraiyengar established a temple for Nambi Naarayanar. At that time the moolavar was Nambi Naarayanar and the utsavar was Naarayanar along with his ubhaya naachiyars.

One night Sri U.Ve.Singaraiyengar had a dream, Sri Venugopala ordered him thus "No bhaagavataa is performing aaradhana for me, please give me a place in the koil of Nambi Naarayanar and perform aaradhanam for me!!!"

Sri Venugopalan was recovered by the wodeyars of Mysore and was in the collection of Sri Nalmadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar.Sri Venugopalan is actually from a Divya Desam close to Cudalore (Adiyen is not able to recollect the exact name)

Thus, Sri Venugopalan was establish as the moolavar of the temple, replacing Nambi Naarayanar. The uniqueness of the temple is that Sri Venugopalan is the moolavar and the utsavar is Naarayanan. The is a seperate Sannidhi for Nambi Naarayanar.

Sri Rukmini Thayar was also consecrated. There is a seperate sannidhi for Andaal. Sri Ramanujar, Pillai Lokacharyar, Manavaala Maamunigal,Sri Vendanta Desikar are also present. The Alwars include the Mudhal Alwars (Pey,Poygai and Bhutad), Nammalwar,Kulashekaran,Thirumangai, Thirumazhisai,Nathamunigal, Aalavandar(Yamunacharyar) and also Vishwaksenar.

Sri Kondandaramar along with thaayar Sitay and Lakhmanar, Sri Hanumar, Sri Garudar and Chakratalwar Sannidhi. The chakratalwar sannidhi was established about a few year back in the auspicious presence of HH Sri Sri Rangapriya Maha Desikan.
