TRIPLICANE

Vedavyasa gave Atreya a sacred idol (Divya Mangala Vigraha) with a conch in his right hand, Jnanamudra (indication of Knowledge) in the left hand pointing to His holy feet signifying the highest ideal of teaching, the essence of the famous Bhagavad Geeta, expressed in a masterly way in the couplet as follows: -

Sarva dharman parityajya mamekam saranam uraja

Aham twa Sarva papebhyo -mokshayishyami ma suchah

Accordingly Atreya Maharshi reached the hermitage of Sumati and narrated to him in detail the circumstance that led him go there. King Sumati was pleased with the image of Sri Parthasarathy and welcomed Atreya.  The front gopuram and other structures are said to have been built first by Tondaman Chakravarti who ruled these parts having his seat of government at Kalahasti and to whom Sri Tiruvengada of the Seven Hills appeared in his dream as the Charioteer of Arjuna.
