Thiruparameswara Vinnagaram was constructed by King Parameshwara Varman (Vaiyiramegan), son of King Rajasimha Pallavan. Thirumangai Azhwar (8th Century CE)has rendered Mangalasasanam here. The temple is under the control of Archaeological Survey of India.


Virosana, the King of Vidarba had no children and prayed to Lord Kailasanada (shiva) and upon his grace the two entrance guradians (dhwarabalagar) of perumal were born as two children to him – Villavan and Pallavan. The children with great devotion to perumal performed yaaga at the northern corner of nearby Kailasanadar temple. In appreciation of this the Perumal appeared before them as Vaikunta Nadhar.


Thiruparameswara Vinnagaram is located straight east of Kamakshiamman Temple inside Kancheepuram town.
