Ulagalantha Perumal Temple or Trivikrama Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Vishnu located in Tirukkoyilur, Tamil Nadu, India. Constructed in the Dravidian style of architecture, the temple is glorified in the Divya Prabandha, the early medieval Tamil canon.As per Hindu legend, Vamana, a dwarf and an avatar of Vishnu, appeared here to quell the pride of Asura king Bali. The temple is believed to be the place where the first three Azhwars, the Vaishnava saints, namely, Poigai Alvar, Bhoothathalvar and Peyalvar attained salvation. The temple is one of the Panchakanna (Krishnaranya) Kshetrams, the five holy temples associated with Krishna, an avatar of Vishnu. The Bhagavata Purana describes that Vishnu descended as the Vamana avatar to restore the authority of Indra over the heavens, as it had been taken by Mahabali, a benevolent Asura King. Bali was the grandson of Prahlada. King Mahabali was generous, and engaged in severe austerities and penance and won the praise of the world. With the praise from his courtiers and others, he regarded himself as the all powerful in the world. Vamana, in the guise of a short Brahmin carrying a wooden umbrella, went to the king to request three paces of land. Mahabali consented, against the warning of his guru, Sukracharya. Vamana then revealed his identity and enlarged to gigantic proportions to stride over the three worlds. He stepped from heaven to earth with the first step, from earth to the netherworld with the second. King Mahabali, unable to fulfill his promise, offered his head for the third. Vamana then placed His Foot and gave the king immortality for his humility. In worshiping Mahabali and his ancestor Prahláda, he conceded sovereignty of Pátála, the netherworld. Some texts also report that Vamana did not step into the netherworld, and instead gave its rule to Bali. In giant form, Vamana is known as Trivikrama. The legend is associated with Thrikkakara Temple in Kerala, but also with this temple and Ulagalantha Perumal Temple, Kanchipuram.The temple has an eleven-tiered rajagopuram with a height of 192 ft (59 m), the third tallest temple tower in Tamil Nadu, after the one in Srirangam Ranganathaswamy temple and Srivilliputhur Andal Temple.

Sri Thiruvikrama Swamy Temple
nov de 2016 • Amigos
Sri Thiruvikrama Swamy Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu. This is one of the 108 Divya Desam of Lord Vishnu. Here the God Vishnu is worshipped as Ulagalantha Perumal and his consort Lakshmi as Poongothai.

This Temple is actually located at Thirukovilur in Villupuram Dist. of Tamilnadu. This place is well connected from Villupuram and Tiruvannamalai. We visited this temple, recently during November when we were in Tiruvannamalai.

The temple covers a vast area of about 5 acres. Many houses and residential buildings are located around the temple tower. The temple has an eleven-tiered Rajagopuram ( Tower) which is about 192 ft height. This tower is the third tallest temple tower in Tamil Nadu, next to "Srirangam Ranganathaswamy temple" and
"Srivilliputhur Andal Temple".

Devotees have a strong belief that Lord Trivikrama would respond to their prayers like seeking high positions, promotions and regaining the positions they have lost.The temple looks so good.

The Legend say that Emperor Mahabali, had a desire that none should exceed him in status and fame. To realize this aim, he conducted a great "Yagna" headed by his Guru Shukracharya. To bring down his pride. Lord Vishnu took the form of dwarf,(Vamana), came to the Yagna field and sought "Three Foot Steps" of land (three steps by His foot) as Charity. Sensing some mischief, Guru Shukracharya, vehemently warned Mahabali to refuse his promise to the Dwarf. Mahabali did not relent and he was only keen to keep up his word to dwarf and offered His wish. Lord took His Vishwarupa, measured the earth by one foot step and the Akasha by the second step and there was no place for the third step and asked Mahabali for the third. Mahabali gracefully accepted his inability and offered his head for the third. Lord placed his head on Mahabali and demanded that he solemnise the Charity with water from his right hand. Mahabali took the water bowl to confirm his promise. Then Mahabali was pressed by the Lord to the Padala Loka.

This is the posture of the God at this temple.One leg (Left) on the Earth, the the Right Leg , stretching towards Sky and the third food on Mahabalis Head. The God looks very Gracious.
