Kancheepuram Varadaraja Perumal Temple

This is my attempt to bring you some of the glimpses of the temple town of Kancheepuram, Tamil Nadu and the famous Sri Varadaraja Perumal Temple. Please do take a look at it.

“Varadharaja Perumal Temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and is located in the holy city of Kanchipuram, Tamil Nadu, India. It is one of the Divya Desams, the 108 temples of Vishnu believed to have been visited by the 12 poet saints, or Alwars. One of the greatest Hindu scholars of Vaishnava VisishtAdvaita philosophy, Ramanuja is believed to have resided in this temple. The temple along with Ekambareswarar Temple and Kamakshi Amman Temple in Kanchipuram is popularly known as Mumurtivasam (abode of trio), while Srirangam is referred to as: ‘Koil’ (meaning: “temple”) and Tirupati as:‘Malai’ (Meaning: “hill”). Among the Divya Desams, Kanchipuram Varadaraja Perumal temple is known as: ‘Perumal Koil’. This is one of the most sacred places for Vaishnavites. The fourth of the Divya Desams that completes this series is Melukote–which is known as Thirunarayanapuram. “
