Located at a distance of around 70 km from Rameshwaram, Sri Adi Jagannatha Perumal Temple, popularly known as Thirupullani Temple, is one of the 108 Divya Desam temples. Dedicated to Lord Vishnu, this temple is visited by most of the devotees on their Rameshwaram tour.

This ancient temple not only attracts visitors because of its sacredness but also for its historical background and architectural excellence. Built during the reign of Cholas, various contributions were made to this temple during Pandyan rule and the rule of Sethupathy Kings. It is now maintained by the Hindu Religious and Endowment Board of Tamil Nadu Government.

In this Thirupullani temple, the main deity is Lord Dharba Sayana Rama. The speciality of this temple is that Lord has been shown in reclining posture. There are also separate shrines for Goddess Padmasini, who is the consort of Lord Adi Jagannatha, Goddess Shridevi, Goddess Bhudevi, Lord Krishna. The image of Lord Krishna in this temple has been shown depicting Lord dancing on a snake.

Built in the Dravidian style of architecture, this temple captivates its visitors with its structural beauty. One of the main attractions of Thirupullani temple is its gopuram with an eight of 120 feet. The temple tank, known with the name of Chakra theertham, is another prominent feature of this temple. This theertham filled clear water is a sight worth admiring too.

This temple has been mentioned in the Tamil epic, Kamba Ramayanam. Thirumangai Azhwar also sung about this Sri Adi Jagannatha Perumal temple and its glory in his hymns.

Legend of Sri Adi Jagannatha Perumal Temple

There are many legends behind Sri Adi Jagannatha Perumal Temple. According to one legend, Lord Rama while on his way to Lanka to fight demon Ravana, who had kidnapped Goddess Sita, had requested Lord Samudra Raja, the God of Ocean to allow a way through the ocean to Lanka. It is believed that Lord Rama had offered prayers lying on Kusa grass; which is known as Dharba Sayanam. Later, Lord Samudraraja, after making the sea gentle and low, had asked the Lord to build a bridge to Lanka.

According to another legend, at this place, Lord Rama had met Pulla maharishi under a peepal tree. It is said that Lord Rama has offered his prayers to Sri Adi Jagannatha Perumal at this place before starting his journey to Lanka. Adi Jagannatha Perumal then gave Lord Rama a bow which was used to kill demon Ravana.

There is another legend according to which King Dasaratha who was the father of Lord Rama, had offered prayers here. It is said that in answers to his prayers and dedicated efforts, his wives gave birth to his children - Rama, Lakshmana, Bharatha and Shatrughna. Owing to this legend, many childless devotees come here to worship and seek blessings of the Lord.
