About the temple
The temple is among the 108 divyadesams of Sri Vaishnavas and comes under Tondai naatu divyadesams. One can leisurely cover all the 15 divyadesams in Kanchipuram in a day's trip. When Janamejayan, a descendant of Pandavas meditated on Sri Krishna and did Ashwamedha yagna here fascinated by Sri Krishna's vishwaroopa form as a messenger for Pandavas, the Lord appeared here as Pandava dhootar here. The Lord is 28 ft high in a sitting posture and really huge. There is a seperate sannadhi for Rukmini thayar here.
