Save & Protect Madhuramangalam Emperumanar Jeeyar Mutt

Maduramangalam Mutt & Temple is located near Sunguvar Chathiram, near Sri Perumbhudhur, the birth place of Bagavath Ramanujacharya. Madhuramangalam is the avathara sthalam of Sri Embar (Govinda Jeeyar), cousin brother of Swami Ramanujacharya. Madhuramangalam is referred to as dakshina madhura (then madhura), lord sri krishna took avatharam in vada madhura, where as, Sri Embar Swamy, amsam of Garudaalzwan took birth in then madhura.

The majestic temple housing the divine sannidis, for Sri Kamalavalli Thaayar Sametha Sri Vaikunta Perumal and Sri Embar Swamy is located next to the holy pushkarini, full of lotus flowers.

Maduramangalam is the birthplace of Embar. The temple at Maduramangalam is more than a 1000 years old and is said to have been built by a Thondaimandala king called Suparna. The deity is Sri Vaikunta Perumal and there is a separate sannidhi for Kamalavalli Thayar. The utsavamurthi is the aradhanamurthi of Embar. Sri Embaar is believed to be an incarnation of Garuda, for which reason the pushkarini is called Garuda Pushkarini. The information about garudaalwan’s incarnatin as sree embar swami, so as to assist swami ramanujacharya in propagating sreevaishnavam is mentioned in “Bhrahma Vaivartha Puranam”.

The villagers at madhuramangalam firmly believe that poisonous snakes will not harm them. In the sannidhi for Sri Embaar, he is seen wearing a pendant gifted to him by Sri Ramanuja. Sri Embar is also known his mystic powers in curing any diseases related to eyes (nethra dosham) and also blesses the aspiring devotees with gnanachakshu (devine inner eye), with which one can understand the real purport of vedantha philosophy and finally attain the tirvadi of supreme lord, sriman narayana.

The main utsavams celebrated are the Brahmotsavam in the Tamil month of Chithirai and the Embaar avatara utsavam in Thai.

Maduramangalam was originally called Mazhalaimangalam. The “mazhalai” (child/baby) was later changed to “madura” (sweet).
