Dear Perumal,

Just when adiyen thought there had been no opportunity to visit any new temple of late…

Adiyen came across a hilltop temple at Yercaud called the Servarayan (anglicised to Shevaroy) temple.

A small cave temple with a low ceiling inside, one has to go bowing down all the way to see Perumal and Thaayar vigrahams (idols)! 🙂

There definitely was a distinct sensation when standing inside the cave, in front of Perumal. Servaraya Perumal, along with Kaveri Thaayar, are considered the protectors of 65 villages near the hill.

Servarayan Perumal Temple (front view) – There is a cave inside!

I don’t think it’s specifically a traditional Sri Vaishnavite temple per se, but it is a Vishnu temple nevertheless, with Perumal’s insignia – shangu, chakkaram, thiruman, pictures of Hanuman and 108 Divya Desams.
