  • Just go here and enjoy yourself in the ancient Pallavar architectural beauty. Perumal in all three poses but only one we can see in normal day. One more pose we can see in ekadasi days and the third one we can not see at all.
  • It is a small yet beautifully architectured structure. The sculptures in the temple are very artistic. This Pallavan style temple is very peaceful and should not be missed by people with an eye on magnificent artwork!
  • Beautiful temple, less crowded, beautifully carved pillars and walls. Worth to visit.
  • Though small structure comparison to other but lot of information about Pallavas. This temple is in Vimana style in contrast to Gopuram style of Chola. The attendant Mr Sampath was very helpful and explained everything in quite details like how there are three rows of carvings - king and family in lowest row, God/ Goddesses in middle and demons in top rows. How different avatars to Vishnu are carved around. Three stage are with Vishnu in sleeping, standing and sitting pose. How carving of Chinese traveller Huan Sung is included. How there are carvings with Brahma and Shiva worshipping Vishnu are done, so on Another special is that temple share pond with Mosque.
  • Great work of Pallavas - the stories depicted as sculptures in the panels supposedly link Pallavas with Cambodia and Khmer art
