Title of Thirupapu Nadars

Thirupapu means Godly care, the status given to the people of Nadar community for their wealth and social status. Alternate legend suggests the ancestors to be the mercenaries hired by the king of Travancore from Kamanayakkanpatti, during the political upheaval in the samasthanam. Nadars were also called as Santror (Educated people in the Chera Kingdom).

Thiru Swamiyadian Nadar with four members of his family established and possessed the entire area in Maravankudieruppu and near by locality. He was a tax payer to the Travancore Samasthanam. So he was called to attend the marriage of Swathi Thirumal Rama Varma and Panapillai Amma Srimathi Ayikutty Narayani Pillai Kochamma of the Thiruvattar Ammaveedu family in 1829. Mr. Samyadiyan also attended the function and presented 1001 ponnu(ponnu- paun-Sovereign) of Gold which was a big presentation in that period. So the king was pleased and honoured him by awarding him with one of the greater award “Thiru Mugam Parpu”. The meaning is Seeing the face of the King. The people who got this award can meet the king without prior an appointment. This can be found from the records of Thiruvancore Cochin Samasthanam available at Trivandrum. “Thirupappu” is the short name of “Thiru Mugam Parpu”. Thereafter from Thiru. Samiyadiyan Nadar was called as “Thiru. Samyadiyan Thiru Mugam Parpu Nadar” in short as Thiru. Samadiyan Thirupappu Nadar.

A great warfare practised by the Royal Trippapu Nadans to defeat/kill the enemy without any external injuries are called Varmam or Varma-Kalari
