Paruthipattu Village – near Avadi is the birth place of 43rd AZAGIYASINGAR (Jeer) of AHOBILA MUTT.
Temple Renovation Committee of the Shri Venkata Varadha Perumal Temple at Paruthipattu Village near Avadi, with the help of large heartedphilanthropists and the ardent help of the devotees have renovated an old dilapidated temple of Sri Venkata Varadha Perumal of this Village in April, 1996 under the auspicious and blessings of 45th Azagiyasinghar (Jeer) of AHOBILA MUTI.
As a continuous effort they have also built an abode for the THAYAR, the Lord’s consort separately as per the agamic principles and practice in the year 1998. With the munificent and willing contributions of large-hearted devotees, an elegant Mandapam has been constructed in front of the main temple of Lord Sri Venkata Varadha. The devotees and visitors are overjoyed to stand in reverence before the Lord and His consorts under the comfortable shelter and shade of the Mandapam to pay their obeisance to the Archavatara Murthis (stone and panchaloka images). A large Mandapam was constructed some years ago by the contribution of large hearted devotees, being utilized for the purpose of congregation on festivel days such as New Year Day, Sri Jayanthi, Sankaranthi (Pongal) etc. In addition the Mandapam is also used for conducting religious discourses (Upanayanams) so that the people may be informed about our spiritual tradition and the way of life, our forefathers have lead thereby, instilling a moral sense in the hearers.
