The `Vaikunda Ekadasi’ festival was celebrated with religious fervor at Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple. Hundreds of devotees took part in the festival celebrated at Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple near rock fort. After special pujas, the Lord mounted on Garudazhvar and reached a separate hall near the main mandapam for darshan. The Utsavamurthy was kept in the mandapam throughout the day for darshan.

History: According to the history of this temple Some devotees, seeking for the darshan of the Lord Sri Mahavishnu, performed a Yagna here. A demon was causing troubles to them from performing the Yagna. In response to the devotee’s prayers, Lord appeared there and destroyed the demon. He was too furious at that time.Then the devotees prayed to Mahalakshmi to quench the fury of the Lord and the mother obliged the devotees. Both graced the devotees by staying there itself. Later, a temple was built here for the Lord Mahavishnu with Sridevi and Bhoodevi as His Consorts with the name of Srinivasa.Since from the day of installation of this temple Lord here have been worshipping with Nitya Pujas.Devotees from many regions arrive here and worship’s Srinivasa Perumal with most devotion and participate’s in special Pujas.

The temple is situated at the foothill of Dindigul Malaikottai with gooseberry trees representing the grace of Mahalakshmi, Goddess of Wealth. It is also considered equal to Tulsi leaves attributed to Lord Vishnu. A place graced by the Lord and the Mother. For removal of an obstacle in marriage efforts and for the removal of the Doshas caused by the anger of ancestors, people worship the Lord with gooseberry leaves. Lord Srinivasa appears with his right hand towards the sky and the left pointing to the earth. Gomatha (worshipping the cow) puja is performed on Fridays with Thirumanjanam when turmeric and milk are given as Prasad to devotees. It is believed that women joining the puja will ever be Suvasinies and girls get a happy match. With the determination of getting the Lord Himself as her husband, Sri Andal took up fasting worship in the Margazhi month (December-January) known as Paavai Nonbu in Tamil, sung 30 sweet verses in praise of the Lord celebrated as Tiruppavail in Tamil Vaishavite literature.
