Tiruvelukkai - Narasimhaswamy Temple

Kanchipuram claims the special honour of a premier temple city, declaring proudly the oneness of Siva and Vishnu, through several places of worship of eternal significance for Siva and Vishnu. Siva Kanchi and Vishnu Kanchi.and their surroundings are treasuring up numerous temples built for all kinds of gods and goddesses. Among them, the Narasimhaswamy temple at Tiruvelukkai occupies a covetable place and beckons the attention of Narasimhopasakas in particular.

The temple is an ancient, well-built, independent temple possessing all the parts including two Pushkarinis with great legends. It has a tall impressive tower surmounting the broad Mahadwara. According to Sthalapurana, this lord was abiding in a cave absorbed in meditation going by the name of Yoga Narasimha, and when the unendurable hardships perpetrated by an asurabadha mounted high, the then citizen played to this lord tearfully to free them from the demon. Being omni benevolent, he rushed out of his abode, leaving his dhyana and defeated and drove out the blood thirsty demon. His Vugrarupa and undaunted perseverance sent chills in the cruel demons and many died like flies at his sight itself. On completion of Jagatkalyana, he chose to stay here. The Mulavirat in standing posture gives darsan and grants sure abhayam, if soulful prayers are offered. A charming icon of Mother Mahalakshmi is installed next to him and she is popular as Amrutavalli Thayaru and Velukkaivalli 1fhayar. The two temple tanks called Kanaka and Hema are very sacred and devotees invariably bathe in them before entering the sanctum. Daily agamic puja is offered with great zeal and annual festivals draw huge crowds. Paey Alwar and Tirumangai Alwar offered Martgalasasan on their visit.

It lies just one km off Kanchi Municipal bounds in the district of, same name of Tamil Nadu and accessible by bus.
