Lakshmi Narasimha Perumal Tindivanam is said to have been built in 400 CE by Pallava Kings.


Lakshmi Narasimha Perumal Tindivanam is said to be connected with the Kanchi Temples. Brahma when performing a Yagna assigned 4 gateways in two categories called Vanathvayam and Bharathvayam. Thindrivanam is beleived to be the southern gateway belonging to the former category. Seeing the angry state of the Perumal even in his Utsav form, Sage Markandeya prayed to him to take up a peaceful form and thus the Utsavamurthy (processional deity) is a calm looking Varadaraja Perumal. Hanuman is said to have received the Conch and Disc here at Lakshmi Narasimha Perumal Tindivanam to kill the demons Thindi and Mundi.


Lakshmi Narasimha Perumal Tindivanam is in the center of Tindivanam town.
