KANCHEEPURAM

The presiding deity, Sri Deepa Prakasa is installed with his consorts Sri Devi and Bhu Devi. The name of the Goddess is Marakata Valli Tayar. The temple is situated adjacent to a cool park full of sacred grass called Toopul, where Sri Vedanta Desika was born in 1268 A.D.

Sri Vaikuntha Perumal Temple:

Sri Vaikuntha Peruma, temple is famous for its architecture. The Lord is in the sitting posture. The Goddess is known as Sri Vaikunthavalli Tayar. It is said that a Pallava king performed an exquisitely sweet-scented sandal bath to Sri Kailasanatha on the occasion of Maha Sivarathri day and the holy bath water ran as a stream.

Ancient sacred books say that devoted worshippers of Siva on the occasion of Maha Sivarathri would be blessed with sons who will be devotees of Lord Vishnu. The Pallava king was blessed with a son Parameswaravarman who was a great devotee of Lord Vishnu and built this Vaikuntha Perumal temple, in the 7th century A.D.
