Perumal - Sri Azhagiya Nambi

Thayar - Sri Kurungudi thayar

Location: 14 kms south west of Nanguneri

To reach: Frequent buses are available via Eruvadi. Hiring a car would be good option. Since the divya desam also happens to have 5 main deities with 3 of them located in the main temple, 1 outside the temple (2 kms) and another on the hill (about 14 kms), it may take about a day to visit all the places. Devotees planning to visit all the places in this divya desam are requested to get prior information for local people through contacts.

Significance: This is also the place where Thirumangal Azhwar attained Salvation in the lotus feets of Emberuman. One can find his Thiruvarasu on the Eastern side of the temple on the banks of River Nambi

Perumal - Sri Adhinatha Perumal

Location - 30 kms East of Nanguneri on the banks of River Tamiraparani

To Reach: Bus to Tirunelveli and then buses to Tiruchendur proceed through Azhwar Thirunagar. However since this is one of the Navatirupathi divya desam, it is advised that devotees hire a car from Nanguneri and plan a full day trip of Navatirupathi.

Significance: Birth place of Swami Nammazhwar. One can still see the 500 year old Tamarind tree beneath which Swami Nammazhwar was found.

Other Navatirupathi Divya desams all located within 5-10 kms from Azhwar Thirunagar
