The Khumbh Abhishekam is being organised on 20th January 2016, an event not to be missed. The entire temple has been renovated and repainted, and illuminated.

It is a nice temple in the heart of Pondicherry. The Moolavar is Varadarajar, & Amman / Thayar is Perundevi. Walkable distance from beach & ashram.

This is one of the must visit temples in Kanchipuram. This is the only Vishnu temple in the area. Beautiful gopuram. No designated place to leave shoes.
