About the temple:
The ancient village Kilkavalavedu is situated west of Vandavasi. The Agraharavasigal of this village have done daily Thulasi Kainkariyam to Kanchipuram Devathi rajan. So the village was originally called as varadharajapuram. Even now one Agrahara street name is called ’Theppermmal Veethi’ Now the village is called Kilkovalavedu. In the center of the village, Sri Ambujavalli Sametha Sri Adhikesava Perumal Sannathi is situated. Village Agrahara vasigal tried to construct a separate sannadhi for Sri Thayar.
As mentioned by Namazhwar, “Agalakillen lraiyumendru Alarmel Mangai Uraimarapa” Sri Thayar is not willing to have a separate sannathi and hence the sannathi was not completed.
Subsequently in this temple Sri Andal, Sri Swami Desikan, Sri Adhivan Satagopa Swami (The founder of Sri Ahobila mutt) moolavar and utsavar vigrahams were installed and sanprokshanam performed.
A separate sannathi was constructed in 1988 for Sri Sarva Mangala Rama Ananeyar Moolavar & utsavar vigrahams installed and Samprokshanam done.
As per the Niyamanam of HH 45th Jeeyar of Sri Ahobila mutt to celebrate the 6th centenary of Sri Adhivan Satagopa Swami. A separate sannathi to Lakshmi Nirusimhan was constructed Moolavar and Utsavar vigrahams installed and samprokshanam performed and 6th centeneray was celebrated. Originally the temple was maintained by the Agrahara Vasigal themselves. Indue course the temple came under the control of H.R. & C.E. Even after the temple was under the control of HR & CE the temple Aradhanam and utsavams were performed by the Agrahara vasigall themselves. As there is no sufficient income from the lands it is very difficult to do Aradhanam & utsavams, the Agraharavasigal of this village who are residing outside the village got together and discussed the matter and decided to form “Sri Kesava Perumal Kainkarya Samithi” with a corpus fund. Through this samithi the daily Aradhanam and utsavams is performed.
