Thiru Anbil, or Sundararaja Perumal Temple (also called Vadivazhagiya Nambi Perumal Temple), is dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu in Anbil, a village at the outskirts of Tiruchirappalli in Tamil Nadu, South Indian state. It is one of the 108 Divyadesam dedicated to Vishnu, who is worshipped as Sundararajan, and as Sundaravalli is his consort Lakshmi. Suthaba asked Durvasa about the penance he had to do to get relieved from the curse. Durvasa explained to him that the curse was due to the sin he had committed in his previous birth and that Vishnu would appear to him to relieve him. As a frog, Suthaba continued his penance under water in the temple Mendaka Theertham and Vishnu appeared to him as Sundararajan. Brahma, the Hindu god of creation, according to another legend, once believed that he was the most beautiful individual on the planet as he created all human beings. It is believed that Vishnu learned this, and that he cursed Brahma to be born as a normal life on earth.
Brahma worshipped Vishnu in earth to get relieved from his curse. Vishnu appeared in front of him like a handsome young man. Brahma enquired about his whereabouts, awakened by the personality of the individual. Vishnu revealed his true form and conveyed to Brahma that there is a temporary physical appearance, and one has to be good by heart. A similar legend holds at the Shivastalam Anbilalanturai. Legend has it also that Mandookamuni failed to pay his respects to the arriving Durvasa muni in his state of intense underwater penance Who cursed him for taking on a toad form. The sage was relieved of his curse upon worshipping Vishnu at this shrine, and hence the name Mandooka pushkarini. This Anbil Sthalam is intimately associated with great creators. Lord Brahma created this whole world and Valmiki Maharishi is great Saint (Muni) and has built-in lots of good thoughts.
