- Periya Thirumozhi 4-3-1.
In all the pAsurams (Periya Thirumozhi 4.3.1-10) of Azhwar, the third line repeats that, this dhivyadesam is middle among all the 11 Thiru Nangur dhivyadesams. From Azhwar mangalAsAsana kramam also, it was the 6th dhivya desam. There were five dhivyadesams that precedes and follows Thiru Semponsei kOil dhivya desam. This dhivyadesam is also known as PerarulAlan Sannidhi. ThAyAr is Sri Alli maamalar NachiyAr. The legend of this dhivyadesam goes like this: During RaamavatAram of emperumAn, Sri RamapirAn killed Ravana in the war and hence to get rid of brahmahatthi dOsham, by the advice of Thruda nEthra maharishi at Thiru Nangur, He was directed to perform AswamEtha yAham and gOdhAnam (pasu dhAnam) which was made of pure gold. Hence name "Sempon". Sri Rama pirAn as per maharishi vaak, performed AawamEdha yAham and made cow by using pure gold. He performed penance inside the cow for four days and on the fifth day, He presented (dhAnam) that cow to a brahmana. The brahmana sold that cow made of pure gold, and built the temple. Hence the name "Semponsei kOil".
