Prasanna Venkatesa Perumal Kotturpuram is a small and beautiful temple situated in a very congested locality near the Adyar River. The temple has been painted and the Prakaram is nicely paved. The entrance is through a gate that leads through a wide passage into the temple. Anjaneya has a separate shrine facing the main deity outside the temple. Adjacent to this shrine is kept a Shiva Lingam which was discovered inside the Perumal Temple. They have named this idol Koteeswarar after the locality. The Parvati idol’s head broke off and a new idol has been commissioned.

Prasanna Venkatesa Perumal Kotturpuram is a newly built-up temple with some of the remains of older times. The Venugopala idol was discovered in the nearby river. A stone inscription found here has been analyzed by the Archaeological Department and they are of the opinion that it goes back more than 900 years. The main deity and Anjaneya idol are said to be very old. The Shiva Lingam in another separate shrine outside is also said to be very old and discovered buried inside the Perumal Temple.
