About Temple:Thiruvaranvilai also known as Aranmula, is one of the 108 divya desam temples situated in Chengannur, Kerala. It is around 10 kms from Chengannur railway station.
This Divyadesam is constructed and devoted by Arjunan, one among the pandavas. During Mahabharta war, when Arjunan and Karnan were fighting, Karnan's Chariot got struck in the land.
He got down from the Chariot and tried to get the wheels of it out from the place. But, he could not do so. At that time, Karnan asked Arjunan not to fight with him at that time and asked him to wait for sometime. But, neglecting his words, Arjunan killed Karnan using his bow and arrow.
But, he felt very sad for his act and to get out this curse, he built this temple and devoted the perumal, thirukkuralappan.
The perumal is said to be the hamsam of Vaamanar. Arjunan was able to get the seva of Sriman Narayanan as "Parthasarathy" during Mahabharatam and Vaamanar in this sthalam.
Once, Brahma devan lost his Gnana book and to regain it, he did a great tapas over this sthala perumal. At that time, the perumal showed his seva and blessed him that he will retain the Gnana book. This is one of the historical story said about this sthalam.
The specialty of this sthalam is the precious ornaments of Sabharimalai Ayyappan is protected only in this sthalam. During Makara Jyothi, it is taken from here and dedicated to Ayyappan.
