Pavalavanna Perumal Temple, Kanchipuram, India

Palvanna Perumal temple is located opposite to Pachaivanna 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).

In Pavalavanna temple, the main deity has red shades which is unique. As he fought the Asuras who were disturbing Brahma's yagna, he has blood sheds in his body.The temple is very small. The tower and the Vimana look ancient and outstandingly attractive.

The presiding deity is Pavalavanna Perumal (Vishnu), who is found in the sitting posture. There is a separate shrine for the Goddess Pavalavalli. There are also shrines for Andal, Rama with Lakshman and Sita, Garuda and Hanuman. Brighu Maharishi is found facing towards the sanctum.

Happy travelling.
