Thippathiswaram: 5 kms. from Nagercoil. A famous Vaishnavite temple situated at this village, considered as one of the Divyasthans. As this deity has been glorified by the saint Nammalwar, it is considered as the Second Tirupati in South India. Tradition says that Vishnu blessed young Nammalwar, as a result of which he was able to compose the famous Nalayara Prabandham, containing 4000 verses. The presiding deity in the shrine is called Thiruvalambcir, which means the Lord holding Lakshmi in his chest. As such, there is no separate shrine for Lakshmi in this temple.
