Complete exponent on darshan of Sri Atthi Varadaraja Swamy temple at Kanchipuram:

People of India and many people all over the world know about the very ancient temple located at the holy city Kanchipuram in Tamilnadu State. Every year lakh of people visit Kanchipuram to get the darshan of Kamakshi Amman and Ekamabareswarar. Along with the main diety temples, there are a number of divya desams at Kanchipuram. It is to be said that there are 108 divya desams (temples) of Lord Maha Vishnu visited by 12 poet saints (Alwars).

So Kanchi had became one of the famous temples in Tamilnadu state. This city is also called as Vishnu Kanchi because it is a land of many vishnu temples. Also this temple became very famous, as it is believed that one of the important Hindu scholars of Vasishta Advaita Philosophy, the great Ramanujan resided at this temple years ago. He great Ramanujan resided at this temple years ago. Among 108 divya desams, Sri Atthi Varadaraja perumal temple is one of the sacred places of Vaishnavas. It is popularly known as Perumal Koil (Perumal Temple).

Legend of Varadaraja Swamy temple, kanchipuram:

The Atthi Varadaraja swamy temple is constructed hundreds of years ago by the Pallava king Nandivarman II. Again it was expanded by kings of various dynasties like Chola, Pandya, Kakatiya, Hoysala, Vijayanagara etc There are a number of changes made from that time to this time. The temple is designed with lofty towers, lengthy walls by using a great architecture. Its archtectonic beauty make pilgrims to get an aesthetic and devotional sense in their minds.

Instead the name of Varadaraja swamy temple, people are most familiar with the name temple of gold and silver lizards. As it is said like that because, when we enter into that temple, pilgrims can see the shapes of gold and silver lizards. There is a belief that, people who touch those lizards will become free from the delinquencies, chronic diseases, sins etc.

Story OF The Gold and Silver Lizards:

Once sage Gautama worshipped the place, at that time while his two disciples offering water for the sage in pooja pots, a lizard fallen in the pot. By seeing that sage Gautama cursed disciples to become lizards. Later they were relieved from the curse by the grace of Maha Vishnu. Their replicas were left on the roof of the temple.

History of the Idol Atthi Varadaraja swamy:

Kanchipuram city, Tamil nadu (TN) state can be called as a place of salvation among southern states. As it contains more than 1000 temples. Of all these temples Sri Atthi Varadaraja swamy temple is one among 108 Divya tirupatis. This temple is most popular because, there is a story behind the idol of this temple. The story is, while our creator Lord Brahma is doing yagna, he ordered Vishwakarma to make an idol of Varadaraya from the trunk of sacred Atthi tree (Fig tree). At that time, that idol was consecrated. From centuries that idol was worshipped by Ramanujaacharya, Vedanta Desikan and many other great scholars, devotees.

But some years ago, while some turushkas are trying to invade all hindu temples, saints of the time decided to save the idol. So they kept the idol in a silver box and placed that box in Aanada Pushkarini, beside the Neerali pavilion (mantapam). After the invasion, because of some reasons the idol is not placed in the Garbhalayam. A new idol was placed instead of that old holy idol.

But for every 40 years that, idol will be taken from the pond and pooja will be done for 48 days. At that time, number of devotees come to Kanchipuram to worship the Lord Atthi Varadaraja Swamy, Incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

Darshan of Ancient Idol of Varadaraja swamy:

After taking the idol from the pond, there is opportunity to worship the idol for 48 days from the day it was taken out. First 38 days, the idol will be kept in sleeping posture (Sayana Bhangima) and remaining 10 days, the idol is placed in standing posture (Sthanika Bhangima).

      • Yes online tickets are side by side booked by Unknown group of people with correct link. You can’t book morning ticket because link given is fake one and having errors. You can see available ticket but you can’t book it. In temple side there is good understanding between Travel Agents and Temple People and Police. They sell morning archana ticket to hindi speaking people only they don’t like to sell tamil local people because they find problem selling it to local people with high price. They sell single ticket for Rs 5000 to 10000. Top to Bottom corruption and every one getting their share so they shut their mouth.

Local pass should be stopped as the visitors are using multiple times. There should be separate queue for Sr. Citizens, Physically Challenged, Pregnant Women

    There should be time slots for each and every queues

    Free Darshan
    Rs.300/- Darshan
