PavalaVannan Perumal – Kanchipuram

ThirumangaiAzhvaar was completely startled looking at the colour of the Lord here. He had seen and praised different forms of the Lord but none had left him as bemused as this one. He had never seen such a colour.

Not able to fathom as to who this one looked like, he wondered if this was similar to the one at Kadanmallai (Mahabalipuram) or the one at ThiruperNagar. And quickly realized that one was different and dissimilar. In different Yugams, Lord has been seen in different forms and colour. Thirumangai could not relate to this one.

PavalaVannan Perumal Divya Desam is situated near the Kanchipuram New Railway station off Madras Road.

The Story

Continuing her effort to stop Brahmma’s Yaagam, Saraswathi sent Asuras. With Brahmma once again looking up to Lord Vishnu for help, Vishnu took on the Asuras and killed them all. In the process of slaying them, blood sprained all over his body. This mix of blood on his body had given the Lord a different colour – ‘Pavalam’. And he remained so ever after.

Opposite this temple, ½ a km away and facing PavalaVannan is Pachai Vannan temple (not praised by Azhvaar).


Navarathri, Deepavali, Vaikasi.
On the 5th day of Vaikasi, Kanchi Varadarajan comes here on a procession from Chinna Kanchipuram.
