I know that Sri Vaishnavas worship Sudarshana Chakra, giving it the status of an azhwar. Does any other sect do so ?

    Why don't you use the proper word Sri Vaishnavas? Ramanujiyas is not the correct word. – Sarvabhouma Apr 10 '18 at 3:54
  • In North India during navratris, goddess is worshipped through making a trishul from sindoor on a wall. – Anubhav Jha Apr 10 '18 at 13:19

In south India, Vel (the weapon of Karthikeya) and trishul are installed in some Karthikeya and Shakti temples (near the respective vahanas) and are worshiped but not as a god/Alzhwar like Sudarshana. Sudarshana is also called Ayudhapurusha and sannidhis for him can be found in Vishnu temples like Varadaraja temple in Kanchi and in Srirangam.
