Perunkarunai is the Avathara sthalam of Selva Nambi, the Vaishnavite acharya, who helped Sri Periyazhwar to establish Sri NarayanaParathathivam at Pandian sabhai and also the preceptor of the PandiyaKing Vallabha Deva. Selva Nambi recited the Bhagavatha Purana to the king Vikrama Pandiya and concluded that those who listen to this Purana will be saved from all evils and “That this dharma should be understood by everyone in the future”. Having listened to this recital, the king was blessed with a son Sri Vallabha (who was known as Vallabha deva). Delighted king built the Varadaraja Perumal temple in Perunkarunai. He also donated several villages for the maintenance and upkeep of the temple and the festivities at the temple. Moolavar Sri Sundara Varadharaja Perumal deity is a Varna Kala Moorthy. There is a separate Sannidhi for Sri Perundevi Thaayar and Sri Andal and Swami Selva Nambi is established in the Maha Mandapam of Perumal Sannidhi along with Senai Mudaliyar, Namazhwar, Kaliyan, Thirukottiyur Nambigal and Emperumanar. Sri Ramar along with Seetha Lakshmana and Hanuman is established as a Separate Temple. There is a Stamba Moorthy called Stambha Sudarshana Oppoosite to Ramar Temple who was established during the period of Koora Narayana Jeeyar.
Currently the outer prakara is full of bushes and is seeking attention!! So in order to make this temple not go extinct to the next generation, Asthigas gathered and formed a trust named Sri Sundara Varadharaja Perumal Seva Sangam (Reg. No: 30/2013) and are looking to perform various Kainkaryam. The trust engaged in a Kainkaryam to arrange for a water resource to the temple at a cost of Rs.2 Lakhs as the Temple pond is absolutely dry and the archagar swami is carrying water for thiruvarathanam from a distance of 1 kilometere. The water source is available only at the depth of 250-350 feet. This trust seeks support & contribution for this Kainkaryam Contributions could be in by Cash and Cheque/DD.
