 Greatness Of Temple:

Procession deity Pavalavanna Perumal of the temple enjoys special reputation in the temple with a staff in His left hand.  The wedding festival is celebrated on the Panguni Uthiram day.  He comes to the Mandap with Mothers Sridevi and Bhoodevi before the Mother Perundevi shrine where the festival is celebrated.  Throughout the day Perumal grants darshan with Mother.  After special Tirumanjanam, He returns to the sanctum sanctorum.  During the wedding festival, those facing wedding problems offer unstripped coconut as nivedhana, take it home and do pujas in the faith that their wedding would soon happen.  As Perumal grants wedding boon, He is praised as Kalyana Varadaraja Perumal – Wedding Boon Perumal.


A 9 day festival in connection with Sri Rama Navami (Lord Sri Rama’s birth day) is celebrated in the temple.  As this is celebrated after the birth of Sri Rama, this is called Janana Utsav.  In this temple, this festival begins 9 days earlier and ends on Navami the birth day of the Lord, hence called Garpa Utsav – Utsav when the Lord was in Mother Kausalya’s womb.  The coronation of Sri Rama is celebrated on this day.  Earlier, it was an 18 day Garba and Birth Utsav covering both the periods.  Now, the Garba Utsav only is celebrated.

  Temple History:

One Vijayaraghavachariar, a Vishnu devotee was in the service of a white officer in charge of administration of this region.  He will begin his daily work only after worshipping Pavalavanna Perumal in Kancheepuram.  As he was travelling to Kancheepuram daily, the officer Colat Durai built this Perumal temple for the convenience of his trusted agent.  Mr. Vijayaraghavachariar continued the Kancheepuram vist.  When questioned by Mr. Colat, he said that the beauty of the procession deity drew him there.  Colat immediately arranged to bring that deity here.  Pavalavanna Nather told his devotee that he did not differ in appearance anywhere to His devotees.  “I am in the hearts of my devotees” He said. Vijayaraghavachariar rendered his services to his Lord throughout his life time.
