History : Thirunariyur is the unique temple where the saniswaran (Planets of Navagraha) blesses the devotees with his two wives ' Mandhi Devi ' and 'Jyeshta Devi 'and two childs ' Maandhi ' and ' Kulikan'. So, the saniswaran is called as mangala saniswaran.

There is a separate shrine for Navagrahas with the Sun at the centre with his two Consorts, Ushadevi and Prathyushadevi, which is said to be a rarity. The other eight grahas are found around Sun.

Devotees who are unable to visit Rameswaram, make their offerings to the Lord Ramanathaswami here.There are also shrines for Gajalakshmi, Hanumantha Lingam, Annamalaiyar, Brahma, Durgadevi and Chadikeswarar.
