SRI ADHI NARAYANA PERUMAL TEMPLE, PULICAT ( PAZHAVERKADU) – A PART OF PULICAT HERITAGE VISIT.

…a continuation post of Pulicat Heritage Visit.
25th February 2017.
During my previous visit I could not enter from east side due to heavy grown the vegetation. I had seen only the top of the vimanam from a long distance. This time we are lucky to see the temple. The temple is under the control of Tamilnadu Tourism department. The renovation of the main sanctum was abandoned. The main sanctum was built with Laterite stone from the base including koshtam. It was told that a court case is pending in Madras High court in connection with the procedure to be adopted in renovation of the temple.

The main sanctum front mandapam has  mandapam, total Ramayan epic was chiseled on the lintel beam of the  ceiling. It was sad to see a lintel was used as a roof slab and also we had seen a telegu inscription.  The Garudalwar sannadhi and Palipedam are looks in very bad state.

The Thayar Sannadhi is in dilapidated condition due to age and vegetation grown. The roots of the trees runs from the roof to the ground which had damaged the structure extensively. It was told that the temple might belongs to Vijayanagara / Nayaka's period. The Thayar sannadhi was constructed with stone and the pillars has different reliefs. It is very sad to see the condition of the temple, in a crumbling state.
