Vaikuntha Perumal Temple was built in the 7th century by the Pallava king Nandivarman. The headquarters of the temple, which is dedicated to Lord Vishnu, consists of three individual floors. At the Moolasthan, huge sculptural statues of Vishnu can be seen in seated, standing and reclining kolas, with selected carvings. Thousands of devotees visit this place every year to seek the blessings of Lord Vishnu. Thousands of tourists come here to see the main attraction of the temple, the ‘Millennium Hall’. Different statues are carved in each of these pillars and each pillar is uniquely embodied. All the sidewalks of the temple are supported by pillars carved with the statue of a lion. The construction of this temple is not only of Hindu religious significance but also of historical significance. The walls of the temple are engraved with references to the war between the Chalukyas and the Pallavas.

Title: This temple belongs to the Madakoil type. Consists of three levels (sites). On the first floor, Moolavar Vaikuntha Perumal is seated on the couch, waking up as seen from the west. On the second floor, Aranganatha Perumal heads north and blesses Anantha Sayana Thirukoil. On the third floor, Paramapathanathar is blessed with a resurrection in a standing temple. Thus, Perumal used to bless the awakened devotees in the Mummadak temple with his lying and standing twigs.
Head History: This temple is a three-storied temple with Mahavishnu standing, lying and standing kolas. The temple was built by the 2nd Pallava king Nandivarma Parameswaravarman and is named as Parameswara Vinnagaram. It is said to have been built in the style of the Rajasimhan period.
Once upon a time the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva came to see the supremacy of this place. Knowing this, the Maharishis and the gods came there to see God. Sage Bharathwaja, who was in deep meditation, was not the only one who had come to see the Lord. In this the angry Sivanar sent Ramba and Urvasi and dissolved the sage’s meditation.
At that time, the sage gave birth to a child named Parameswaran. Parameswaran became the king by the grandson of Thirumal. The place where Perumal is staying was called Parameswara Vinnagaram and Perumal was called Sri Vaikunda Perumal as he was also given the post of Vaikuntha.
The temple is located on an area of about three acres to the east of the Kanchi, Kamatchi Amman Temple and has a west facing tower and two prakaras. Moolavar Sri Paramapatha Nath Perumal. Mother Vaikunthavalli. The plane is the front plane. It is an Ashtanga aircraft with three platforms. On the upper floor, Emperuman stands on the scepter, on the second floor, Sri Devi Bhudevi as Sametara, on the Sayanakol, as Ranganatha, and on the lower floor, as Sri Vaikuntap Perumala.
On the second floor, Arul Perumal is said to have slept with his head to the north and his feet to the south. The pillars and the pillars of the temple are carved in the same stone.
The majestic halls of the temple and their pillar sculptures are a special sight. The Pattabhishek scenes of the 18 Pallava kings sculpted on the surrounding walls are quite spectacular. They are still considered historical evidence today. Although the original deity of the temple is Sri Vaikundap Perumal, there is no heavenly gate festival here. Iperumal also has the title of “Paramapathanathan”.
It is hoped that the marriage will take place soon if Sri Vaikunthavalli prays to his mother on Fridays. Devotees say that the things they wanted to do to worship Perumala can be done by offering puliotara and sugar pongal in Markazhi.
The temple was built by the Pallava king Nandivarman II. Here, one can see Perumala in the twists of standing trust, lying trust and sitting trust. The temple is famous for its sculptures and is built of some kind of sandstone.
