Thirupullani Sri Kalyana Jagannatha Perumal temple is situated in Ramanathapuram, 54 km away from Rameshwaram.

This temple is also known as ‘Saranagathi Kshetram’. The legend has that; Sita Devi was abducted by the demon King Ravana and kept her as prisoner in Asoka Vatika. Vibhishana Dharmathma -brother of demon King Ravana made several attempts to change his brother’s evil mind from the atrocious act. The end result was Ravana threw Vibhishana out of his Kingdom. Finally, Vibhishana left Lanka and surrenderd at the Lotus feet of Lord Rama. Lord Rama came to know the heinous act of Ravana through King Vibhishana. Thus, this place is known as ‘Saranagathi Kshetram’.


Lord Rama engaged in a serious discussions of ‘how to retrieve Sita Devi from the clutches of the demon King Ravana?’ with his warriors like Sugriva, Hanuman, Vibhishana and the entire army of Vanaras stayed in Thirupullani. Lord Rama underwent severe penance in reclining posture on the Dharba Grass (a bed made out of Dharba Grass - Dharbhasayana Ramar) and prayed to Lord Jagannatha Perumal, thus the place got its name ‘Thirupullani’. The most pleased Lord Jagannatha presented Lord Rama with a divine bow.



Thirupullani is the sacred place where Samudra Rajan with his wife Varuni surrendered to the Lotus feet of Lord Rama as ‘Saranagathi’. Sethu Samudram is situated near Thirupullani, in order to save Sita Devi from the demon king Ravana; they have to cross the vast ocean Sethu. Lord Rama prayed to Sethu Samudram to give way for their warriors. Samudra Rajan was not lenient; Lord Rama threatened him that He would make the entire water dried up. At this point of time, Samudra Rajan with his wife Varuni fell on the feet of the Lord and surrendered.


As advised by Lord Varuna, Lord Rama appointed the monkey warriors Nalan and Neelan to construct bridge over Sethu Samudram. As these monkey warriors has got the special skill and blessings of making the stone to float, they successfully constructed a vast bridge over Sethu. Later, Lord Rama with his warriors attacked the demon King Ravana and released Sita Devi from his custody. Once again, Lord Rama visited Thirupullani after the fierce battle with the demon king Ravana.
