Temple History :

Lord Trivikrama Perumal graces the devotees from the sanctum under the Sri Chakra Vimana. Lord Venugopala plays the Kshetra Balaka role. There are shrines in the prakara for Lords Venugopala, Lakshmi Narayana, Lakshmi Raghava, Lakshmi Narasimha, Sri Rama and Sri Veera Anjaneya, Mother Sri Andal and Shukracharya, the Guru of Asuras. The tower of the temple is the third tallest in the state, the first at Sri Rangam, the second at Srivilliputhur. This is an 11 tier 192 feet tall tower. The temple area covers 5 acres. Even after crossing the main tower, there are residential parts. The place is praised as Nadu Nadu Tirupathi. There is a temple for Lord Vamana Murthy in Tirukakarai in Kerala. Vamanamurthi graces here from behind the presiding deity.

Devotees strongly believe that Lord Trivikrama would respond their prayers seeking high positions, promotions and regain the positions they have lost. Devotees are blessed with the happy wedding, children, and freedom from enemies. Lord Chakarathzhwar frees the devotees from the evil effects of spells and witchcrafts.
History:

Emperor Mahabali, though good-natured, ever helpful to those in need, had a desire that none should exceed him in status and fame. To realize this aim, he conducted a great yajna headed by his Guru Shukracharya. Lord thought to bring down his pride. He took the form of a dwarf, came to the Yajna field and sought three-foot steps of land (three steps by His foot) as that (charity). Guru Shukracharge sensed some mischief in the dwarf and understood that the visitor was none other than Lord Vishnu. He vehemently warned Mahabali and did his best to prevent his promise. Mahabali did not relent. 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 solemnize the dhan with water from his right hand. Mahabali took the water bowl to confirm his promise but Shuracharya took the form of a bee and blocked the hole of the bowl from releasing the water. Lord Vishnu took a grass piece, put it on the bowl hole that blinded the Guru. Mahabali was pressed by the Lord to the Padala Loka and taken later with Him, goes the story.

Any devotee who would indeed like to read and enjoy this Vamanavathara-Trivikrama story of Lord should read Sriman Narayaneeyam by Narayana Pattadri and Srimad Bhagavatha by Sage Veda Vyasa. They will have to close the book only unwillingly.
