Pachaivanna Perumal Temple, Kanchipuram

Pachaivanna Perumal temple is located opposite to Palvanna Perumal temple in Kalander street near bus stand in Kanchipuram city, South India. The highlight of these temples is that both these temples together are considered as a single Divya Desam (one of 108 holy adobes of Lord Vishnu).



The presiding deity of the temple is Lord Vishnu named as Pachaivanna Perumal. The sage Bhrigu Maharishi prayed to God and got Lakshmi as his daughter. He got his daughter married to Lord Vishnu in this temple. The Lord appears in the standing posture in this temple. There are shrines for the goddess Maragadambal, Andal, Garuda, Hanuman and Prasanna Varadarajar. This temple is too small but very ancient.

Happy travelling.
