Tirunarayanapuram - Vedanarayana Perumel Temple 

This unique three-storied Vaishnavate shrine is only one of its kind in the down South and figures as a rare shrine housing many adorable deities and each has an awe-some legend of its own. Very rarely deities are installed one over the other in the same temple; though each has its own garbha griha etc. The famous towns of Annavaram and Draksharamam are possessing holy temples housing the adorable images both in the first and second floors, each one at it. It is at Mahakali temple in Ujjain, thd archamurtis are installed in three stories. This is akin to it in all aspects. But here in the three, the Moolavars are having the same suffix 'Varada' and they are justifying the attribute given. It is an ancient temple built in the Dravidian architectural model and imposing in every respect like prakara, mahadwara, gopura, garbha griha etc. Mini-shrines are built in the three stories also. In the first ground floor Sundaravaradaraja's icon in standing posture is installed and it is quite pleasant to sight. He was worshipped ardently by Brahma, Rudra, Bhudevi and Markandeya maharshi, and Puranas give eloquent testimony of their prayers answered by the Lord. They partook his anugrah and turned beacon lights to the posterity. In the second storey, enchanting icons of Vaikunta Varada, Yoga Narasimha and Lakshmi Varahaswamy are installed. They are equally benevolent in granting the boons of the adorers. In the third floor, there are many images of lord Mahavishnu in several august names such as, Aniruddha Varada, Kalyana Varada, Atchyuta Varada are set up and they are receiving ardent worship by the devotees. As they are known for munificent in bestowing boons, the people's craze for worshipping with several rituals is on the increase. It is here lie two more shrines - one for Andal and another for Anandavalli Tayar. Studded to the walls, as it were, with the highest God Srimannarayana s images, this temple emancipates with a mere memory itself. Needless to say, for Vaishnavates it is El dorado beckoning eternal attention for soulful veneration. Agamic worship is offered and several festivals are conducted with fanfare due.

It lies 10 km off Chengalpattu of Tamilnadu, accessible by bus.
