Chakra Theertham

History

Chakra Teertham, literally, a water body named after the chakra ,the discus of Lord Vishnu. It is believed that Lord Brahma once wanted to perform penance, and wanted a pure location, and asked Lord Vishnu to find him a suitable place. Lord Vishnu sent his discus, which carved out an area on the hill, creating a place for Lord Brahma to sit. Into the gorge rushed water from the hill streams, providing him with water. More believably, there is an image of Chakrathazhwar (Lord Vishnu depicted in the form of a discus) on one of the rocks here.

And this is the place where the Lord killed a giant with his Sudarshana disc and saved his devotee named Padmanabha. We can see here the statue of Lord Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy besides Lord Sudarshana.
