Recent excavations revealed a five-and-a-half feet high idol of Mahavishnu indicating the original temple was built in the eighth century during by Pallavas. Along with this was also recovered some more idols, a rare kind of bell and a lamp. A stone with an inscription was also found mentioning a gift of gold/land made by one Kaveri Thenkarai Ravichathiran to keep two Lamps burning perpetually.

We recommend using the map below to visit all the temples in this area as it can get confusing for new visitors. There are many other temples in Nanganallur, most of which are of recent origins – Arthanareeswarar, Hayagrivar, Guruvayoorappan, Dharmalingeswarar, Rajarajeswari, Anjaneya, Ayyappa, Amman and more.
