Rama Temple – Saidapet

Lord Parthasarathy of Thiruvellikeni Divya Desam makes an annual trip to this temple in Thai 

Located 1kilometre West of Saidapet Railway Station in the Raghunatha Kshetram is the over 600years old Rama temple that dates back, possibly, to the Vijayanagar rule. Later, Alarmel Mangai Thaayar was found in a pit buried at this place. It is believed that Prasanna Venkatesa Perumal came up subsequent to this with a separate sannidhi for Thaayar.

Originally, this was a Rama temple, but this is now referred to as Prasanna Venkatesa Perumal temple.

Hanuman Temple

An interesting feature of the temple is that there is a Hanuman temple on all the four sides of the temple.

Divya Desam Lord’s annual visit

This is believed to be the Abhimana Perumal for Lord Parthasarathy of Thiruvellikeni Divya Desam. Once a year, on the last Sunday of Thai, Parthasarathy visits the Lord here and goes out on a joint procession around the four Mada Streets.

Adhi Kesava Perumal of Mylapore also visits this temple once a year. Thirumanjana takes place for Kesava Perumal inside this temple, after which he goes around the four Mada Streets on a procession.
