Thirumohur divyadesam, Madurai (Kalamegha perumal temple, Thayar – Mohanavalli thayar) is dedicated to the female incarnation Mohini of Lord Vishnu. Legend says that a drop of the divine nectar obtained by churning of ocean is believed to have fallen into the temple tank here. The theertham is known as Ksheerabdi. This form of the Lord here was prior to taking the form of Mohini avatara. It is believed that the place was originally called as Thirumohanavur which later transformed to Thirumohur.
