About the temple
The temple is on the banks of the Palar river. The presiding dieties are Kamala Varadaraja perumal and Sundara Mahalakshmi. However renovations are going on in the temple to replace the main sannadhi of Varadaraja perumal with a new structure and hence darshan is not possible for the lord. You can however worship Mahalakshmi here who is said to be very powerful and special. It is more popular as Mahalakshmi temple and if case you need to ask the route you can mention the same.
