THE NAGARATHAR THINNAI

  

The Thinnai is an interesting Indian concept and a part of every ancestral Nagarathar home. The Thinnai or Mugappu is a low raised platform in front of the house that is a on one side into the store rooms and massive granaries and on the other into the Kanakupillai or Accountant's room. The menfolk of

the house used Thinnais as spaces to relax and hold conversations. This was the place for much shared canmaraderie where the atmosphere was light and jovial. In the bygone era, there were no hotels to speak of and Thinnais were the refuge of travelers. It is also the space where soothsayers would sit on and predict the fortunes of the family.

Thinnais in some Nagarathar houses are large spaces that can accommodate even 200 people and are a boon during functions. With spaces such as these, Nagarathars never had the problem of ever renting halls for functions.

The Chettinad Palace has converted the Thinnai into a visitor’s lounge. The Bangala is a stately Nagarathar mansion that has been converted into a hotel but retains the Nagarathar style. It aims at giving visitors an authentic Chettinad experience. The Thinnai here is in the reception and is decorated with colourful Nagarathar weave cushion-covers, huge brass vessels serve as flower pots and sepia photographs adorn the walls.

The Thinnai forms an integral part of every Nagarathar home. A space where the home meets the outside world with graciousness and charm.

THE NAGARATHARS IN BURMA

  

Nagarathars have played a prominent role in Burma ever since the 1800’s. The first Nagarathars landed in Burma in 1826, accompanied by British troops and Indian labourers. Nagarathars in Burma were the crucial link between Burma and international finance. They had established strong ties with British banks

and sourced capital from here which they again lent in turn. They played a critical role in developing Burma into the ‘rice-bowl’ of the British Empire by providing the much-needed capital to Burmese cultivators.

Nagarathars functioned as moneylenders and also offered banking services in Burma. Most of the activity was centred around agricultural funding where the title deed of the land was secured as collateral. They did not stop with this but took in deposits, remitted funds, discounted hundis, honoured cheques, exchanged money, dealt in gold, stored valuables for safe-keeping.

Burmese cultivators could avail a variety of financial products from Nagarathar moneylenders. These included crop loans, land purchase loans or loans for redemption and improvement. Usually, cultivators would take multiple loans from a Nagarathar lender throughout the year depending on seasonal needs - for seed purchase, transplanting , payments to labourers, for the purchase of cattle and so on. These were financed with a kind of ‘revolving credit’ facility which was a boon to cultivators as repayment was due only once a year, after the sale of the cultivator’s crop.

Nagarathars did not stop with just lending for agricultural activties, they also financed personal needs of cultivators like marriage expenses, funerals, religious, social festivities and household contingencies.

The bulk of Nagarathar money lending in Burma was concentrated on the agricultural sector. However, they also lent to those involved in other activities like wholesalers, rice millers, shopkeepers, small-time industrialists and different kinds of artisans.

The Bank of Chettinad was a ‘scheduled bank’ formed in 1929 in Burma by Nagarathars. This was the combined result of efforts from two prominent firms in Rangoon and enjoyed strong support from many foreign banks, especially the Chartered Bank, the Imperial Bank, the National City Bank of New York and Lloyds Bank.

The Nagarathar run of success in Burma was shattered with the onset of the global Depression of the 1930s as the economic system was left in tatters.

NAGARATHARS MAHEMAI

  

The Nagarathar community is known for its philanthropy and enthusiasm towards undertaking community development projects. They use their legendary wealth to benefit not just their families but also the underprivileged.


Mahemai is an ancient Nagarthar custom where each Nagrathar family earmarks a portion of its earnings towards the welfare of their village and community. Magamai is considered an annual tax paid to the god. The accounts are carefully worked on and the profits calculated and magamai given based on this. Later, give free food is distributed at the temple called Annadhanam.

The Mahemai is used in the best possible way through planning well. The major part of this is dedicated towards the upkeep, restoration and maintenance of the temple. Special attention is paid to those shrines padal petta sthalangal which were hymned by the four great poet-saints, Manikya Vachakar, Appar, Tirugnana Sambandhar, and Sundaramurti. Some of the money so collected is spent on the upkeep of Sanskrit schools, medical camps and so on.

The Murugappa Group through its A.M.M. Foundation uses a fixed percentage of the company’s profits for community work as Mahemai.

KOVILOOR TEMPLE

  

The famous Koviloor temple of Sri Kotravaleeswarar was initially built by the Pandiya King "Veerasekara Pandiyan" about thousand years ago. It is currently being maintained by the Koviloor Aadheenam.

The temple has an interesting legend behind it. King Veerasekara Pandiyan was once hunting near Saliwadi village and lost his sword but luckily it was later recovered. As a mark of gratitude, he constructed this temple and named the deity as Kotravaleeswarar or Raja Katka Parameshwar which means the God who saved the King's sword, valour and thereby the citizens.

The Koviloor Temple is ancient and beautiful. Its main temple tower, Rajagopuram, is built with seven tiers according to Agama tradition and is decorated with exquisite sculptures of godss and goddesses.

The Koviloor Temple is surrounded by four broad Mada Streets. In front of the temple, on the eastern side is the tank Madhu Puskarani with a mandapam in the centre of the tank. On the southern side lies the Koviloor Aadheenam mutt. Northern and western side of the temple, residential quarters for the temple and mutt employees are built.

On the main road, two magnificent chariots constructed with concrete, on both sides of entrance, to welcome devotees to the Koviloor Mutt and temple.

The Nithya Kalyana Perumal Temple is located 42 kms from Chennai and 16 kms from Mahabalipuram. This belongs to the series of holy shrines that make up the 100 temples known as Tirupathy. Every year devotees flock to this temple to be blessed with marital bliss. Any devotee who prays here with

sincerity will be blessed with marriage. Many young men and women who have been unmarried for some reason come here seeking blessings.

The tradition is that the person seeking marriage has to wear a garland and go round the shrine a prescribed number of times. Once the prayers are answered and the devotee gets married, the couple must come with the wedding garlands, and tie them to a tree behind the shrine.

There is an interesting legend relating to the presiding deity here Aadi Varaga Perumal. Kalava Rishi had 360 daughters and hearing the rishi’s prayers the Lord descended from heaven and married all of them, one each day. Finally, he merged them all into one woman Akila Valli Naachiyaar. Since He went through 360 marriages in succession, He came to be known as Nithya Kalyana Perumal.

As the Lord has his consort, Lakshmi on his left, the temple is also known as Tiruvidandhai. It was also known as Sreepuri, Varagapuri, Asurakula Kala Nalloor, Vaamagaveepuri.

KALYANASUNDARAR TEMPLE

  

The Kalyanasundarar Temple at Thirumananjeri is a famous Prarthana sthala. This is located about 15 k.m west of Mayiladuthurai and 5 k.m North from Kuthalam in the Mayiladuthurai-Kumbakonam Highway. It is well-connected by trains and buses.

There is a strong belief that an unmarried man or woman will get married if they propitiate the presiding deity Kalyanasundarar and his divine consort Kokilambal here. They should offer garlands to the divine couple here and will shortly be blessed with marriage.

According to the legend, Lord Kalyanasundarar wed Kokilambal here and this is the reason it is called Thirumanacherry. Goddess Arulmigu Kogilambal was born as a cow as she had been cursed by God Uthvaganathasamy. Later, she was born as a daughter of Saint Bharatwaja Rishi by worshipping the God Uthvaganathar. She then chose the Lord as her husband and married him.

The highlight of this temple is that you can see Lord Kalayanasundarar and Goddess Kokilambal in all their wedding finery. Lord Kalyanasundarar is resplendent and glorious as the bridegroom blessing the devotees. The Goddess stands beside him bowing her head shyly. Another speciality of this temple is that the Lord gave Mangalya Pichai to Rathi Devi and got Manmathan and Rathi Devi married here. Samayakkaravar's Thirugnanasambandar and Thirunavukkarasar praised the Lord at this place in the Agnipuranam.

The interesting thing about this temple is that All times are considered auspicious since Lord as Shiva and Parvathy are in bliss here always. This temple observes no Raagu kalam, Emakandam, Kuligai kalam, Ashtami, Navami and so on. Everyday six poojas are held at Ushakkalam, Kalai Santhi, Uchikalam Sayaratchai and Irandam.

The famous Kanchanoor Temple is located 18 kms in the Kallanai-Poompuhar Highway and near Thiruvavaduthurai near Kumbakonam in the Thanjavur district. This is one of the five Navagraha Sthalas and is associated with Sukran (Venus). The presiding deity is Lord Karpagambika Samedha

Agneeshwarar. This is also known as Palaasavanam, Brahmapurai and Agnisthalam.

Brahma is believed to have seen a vision of Lord Shiva’s wedding with Goddess Parvathi here. This temple has the distinction of having broken the creator Brahma’s bachelorhood and removed the curse on Chandiran. It’s also believed that Lord Vishnu worshipped Agniswara here to rid Himself of Shukra Dosha. Any obstacles to marriage can be broken here. Fridays are considered very auspicious to this temple and devotees offer white flowers to the Lord.

Praying to Shukra at the shrine bestows long life, wealth, happiness, children, property and good education.

SIGNIFICANCE OF KUNGUMAM

  

Married women are expected to wear kungumam at the partition of the hair and this is considered a sign of sowbhagyam or good fortune. The first time it is applied on a woman’s forehead is on the day of her wedding.

The tradition of wearing kungumam is over 5000 years old. Female figures excavated at Mehrgarh, Baluchistan show that this was a tradition even in early Harappan times.

Radha, the wife of Lord Krishna wore the kumkumam in a flame like design on her forehead. The usage has also been mentioned in The Puranas, Lalitha Sahasranamam and Soundarya Lahharis. Wearing kunkumam is symbolic of the female energy of Parvati and Sati.

According to Hindu astrology, the Mesha Rashi or the House of Aries is on the forehead. The Lord of Mesha is Mars and his color is red.

SANGAMESWARAR TEMPLE

  

The Sangameswarar Temple located on the banks of Bhavani River, a tributary of the Kaveri in the District of Erode, 400 kms away from Chennai. The temple was built at the confluence of Kaveri River, Bhavani River and agaya gangai, an invisible underground water source. Of the seven holy Shiva centers of the

Kongu Region, Bhavani is one and bears the scriptural name Thirunana.

The legend is that the remnants of the celestial nectar which came out of the milky ocean was buried here by Parasarar. This nectar turned into a Sivalingam. He was protected from the demons by his devotion to Lord Shiva, Kuberan, Rama, Arjuna, Viswamitrar and others worshipped here.

The Goddess here is Vedanayaki is also known as Sangameswari, Bhavani Amman, Maruthunayaki and Vakreswari. It is said that the Four Vedas came into being on this soil only.

Another legend relating to this temple is that Kubera, son of Vaisira was gifted an aircraft to visit Shiva temples across the country. As he was flying near the river Cauvery Kubera was surprised to see a deer, tiger, cow, elephant, snake and rat drinking water together with no enemity. This was near an Ilandhai tree on the river bank. While he was still awe-struck by this scene, he heard a voice from the sky saying it was a place where vedas visited, inhabited by gandharvas and advised him to worship the Shivalingam under the Ilandhai tree. The temple’s Ilandhai tree produces fruit during all seasons and is used for everyday puja even today.

Praying at this temple can remove all obstacles to marriage.

NAGARATHAR ILAYATHANGUDI KOVIL

  

The Ilayathangudi or Ilayatrangudi Kovil is the oldest of the Nagarathar Kovils and dates as far back as 707 A.D. This is dedicated to Arulmigu Kailasanathar and his consort Arulmigu Nithyakalyani and lies 25 kms from Karaikudi. This place was considered the resting place for the Gods and derives its name from

the Tamil word Ilaippu which means tiredness. There is a Puranic legend about this place. On the banks of the River Godavari, there lived a man called Subadran with his wife and nine children. Though they were happy with their lifestyle, they wanted to seek God’s blessings and attain Mukthi. One day they all decided to start a pilgrimage to achieve this goal. They visited various Siva temples on both banks of the River Cauvery and finally reached Ilayattrangudi. They were physically weary and exhausted at this point. They saw a Sivatheertham and immediately took a bath. This physically refreshed them but their spiritual thirst was not quenched. Lord Shiva took the form of a Siddhar and imparted knowledge on topics like Karma, Bhakthi, Luck and Mukthi and cleared their doubts. After this, they asked him who he was and then Shiva revealed his true self with his consort and vanished into the lingam. Subadra and his sons were overjoyed and helped raise a temple at that spot. They conducted many Siva poojas and the sons became Navasiddhars and their father attained Mukthi. Since, the path to Mukthi was found here, it’s called Ilayathangudi or the place which gives souls rest.

NAGARATHAR NEMAM KOVIL

  

The Nemamkovil is dedicated to Arulmigu Jayamkonda Choleeswarar and his consort Arulmigu Soundharanayagi. It lies 12 kms from Karaikudi and derives its name from the word Neamam or rules. This Nagarathar temple features over 125 beautiful sculptures. There are no Pirivus here. The legend behind this temple is that once the famous rishi

Agathiar was traveling to heaven. On the way, he suddenly found that he could not move even a single step. He looked down and saw a beautiful meadow on earth and desired to go there. He realized that this was God’s game and went down. He established a Siva Lingam there and put a garland around it but this turned into honey and slipped down. Then he went towards another place and saw a red light and head a voice that told him that it was Manikka Ganapathy. He also told him that there had once been 3 rakshasas who terrorized people including the Gods. Lord Shiva then came down to fight the rakshasas but did not do that but instead smiled at them and instantly they were destroyed alongwith their fortress. This victory gave him the title Jayamkonda Choleeswarar.
