Bindu Madhava Perumal Thutipet is a large east facing temple with a 5 tier Rajagopuram at the entrance. The large gateway of the Gopuram is depicted with the Avatars of Vishnu ending with Narasimha Avatar unlike the normal practice of the 10 Avatars. The temple itself is at a level below the Gopuram and the main deity is on an elevated platform. The mantapa also has beautiful carvings. Bindu Madhava Perumal Thutipet is considered as one of the Pancha Madhava Perumal temples as per the priest, though as per reliable versions these temples, considered to have been installed by Lord Indra, are Bindu Madhava in Varanasi, Kunti Madhava in Pithapuram near Kakinada, Sundara Madhava inside the Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Thiruvananthapuram, Veni Madhava near Allahabad Sangam (Veni Madhav) and Sethu Madhava Perumal inside the Rameswaram temple.

From the style of construction and other ancient aspects of the temple including inscriptions, Bindu Madhava Perumal Thutipet can be estimated to be more than 800 years.


The main deity is believed to have been brought and installed by Roma Maharishi. The fact that the Avatars of Vishnu ends with Narasimha Avatar, as described above, it is considered that this temple was created before the Dwapara Yuga. An Asura called Perathurtha who created obstructions to the rituals of Roma Maharishi was cursed by him to become a Tiger. As he continued to rage around Lord Vishnu ordered Indra to take the form of a tiger to subdue him. The Asura requested the Lord to stay here at Bindu Madhava Perumal Thutipet.


Bindu Madhava Perumal Thutipet is 2 kilometers north west of Ambur. Take the Ambur By Pass, cross the Paalar River and follow the same road which turns north to reach Bindu Madhava Perumal Thutipet visible from the main road.
