    Why to visit this place

    The Pallava king Narasimhavarman I built Sri Parthasarathy Temple in the 6th century CE, and the Vijayanagara kings rebuilt it in the 15th century. The temple was constructed in the traditional Dravidian architectural style, with exquisite carvings and stucco figures on the gopurams and mandapas. Yoga Narasimha, Rama, Gajendra Varadaraja, Ranganatha, and Krishna as Parthasarathy are among the five manifestations of Vishnu shown in the temple. The idol of Parthasarathy, together with his consort Rukmani, brother Balaram, friend Satyaki, son Prathymnan, and grandson Anirudhan, can be found in the sanctum sanctorum. The Pancha Veera is formed by the five warriors and is based on several Mahabharata legends.




    Special Tip:

    The temple celebrates the Brahmotsavam festival with majesty throughout the months of April and May, and this is the finest time to visit.
