Karapureeswarar Thiruparkadal is a Vaippu Sthalam included in one of the Thevaram Hymns of Thirunavukkarasar (7th Century CE). Karapureeswarar Thiruparkadal has many inscriptions one of which is said to belong to the period of Parantaka Chola (10th Century CE).
Karapureeswarar Thiruparkadal has a legendary connection with the temple of Prasanna Venkatesa Perumal temple nearby where Lord Vishnu is actually standing on the base of a Lingam.
Karapureeswarar Thiruparkadal is inside Kaveripakkam/Tiruparkadal village and on the way to the Perumal temples.
