About the temple
Lord Sundara Varadhar is the presiding diety of this very ancient temple. The temple is also called Chaturvedi Mangalam meaning that vedic chants could be heard all the time. The temple is a huge three tier structure similar to Thirukostiyur and Thirukoodal divyadesams. However it is interesting to note that in those divyadesams there is just one Lord while here there are four idols in first tier, four in second tier and one in third tier.
The temple is also called Pancha Varadha Kshetram as Lord Vishnu is believed to have given darshan to Pandavas here during their exile.
The temple is further known as nava murthy sthalam as this is the only Vaishnava temple with so nine idols of the Lord.
