Pavalavannan perumal temple

About the temple

The temple is among the 108 divyadesams of Sri Vaishnavas and comes under Tondai naatu divyadesams. This is the first temple normally visited by those visiting Kanchipuram based divyadesams as the temple is open for less time. The divyadesam is a combination of two temples- Pacchai vannar and Pavala vannan. Amongst all the divyadesams, this is the only one where Lord Vishnu has been praised for his colour by Thirumangai alwar. Lord Pavalavannan is in standing posture and there is a seperate sannadhi for Pavalavalli thayar. A few metres away is Pachai vannan perumal temple where the Lord appears in a sitting posture on Adiseshan.

How to reach

The temple is close to Kamakshi amman temple and Kanchipuram railway station.
