TRIPLICANE

The presiding deity of this temple is Sri Venkatakrishna Swamy. He is also known as Geetacharya.  King Sumati prayed to Lord Tiruvengada of the Seven Hills to give him darsan as the Charioteer(Sarathy) to Partha (Arjuna) in the Mahabharata War, discoursing on Geeta. The Lord of Tiruvengada appeared in his dream and bade him go to Vrindaranya where he would give him darsan in the form he desired.

Meanwhile Atreya Maharshi requested his spiritual preceptor Vedavyasa to choose him a proper place for performing penance and the preceptor directed him to go to Vrindaranya on the banks of Kairavini
Teertha overgrown with Tulasi plant, where King Sumati was in penance.
