Neela Megha Perumal Temple or Sowriraja Perumal Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu located Tirukannapuram, Tamilnadu, India on the Kumbakonam-Tiruvarur highway. It is one of the "Divya Desams", the 108 temples of Vishnu reverred by the 12 poet saints, or Alwars.
Pancha Kannan Shetram
This temple is one of the Panchakanna(Krishnaranya) Kshetrams. Kannan literally means Lord Krishna (pancha: five; Kshetrams: holy places). These 5 temples are situated in Tamilnadu, south India. Interestingly none of these temples have the main deity as Krishna, an avatar of Vishnu. The processional deity might have led to the derivation of the names of these places.
The following constitute Panchakannan Kshetrams:
