IMG_2181 1 km West of Kanchipuram Bus Stand we can proceed to this temple to have a darshan of LORD KRISHNA  which is very special We can see  LORD  Krishna in a majestic sitting posture (facing East), almost  25 feet in height suggestive of the Lord’s Vishvaroopam.

Lord Krishna  in order to make peace with the Kauravas,  proceeds  to Hastinapura to the court of Duryodhana on behalf of the Pandavas.  With a plot to kill Krishna and thus to put all hopes of a peace treaty,  the evil Duryodhana digs a pit and tops it with bamboo sticks.

On this bamboo topped pit, he puts up a grand stage, thus setting up  Lord Krishna for a mega fall.  Once he enters the hall, the all knowing  Lord Krishna presses the stage with his little toe to send it crushing below. And immediately after,  Lord Krishna displays his Vishwaroopam to the blind Dhirdharashtra (and only to him), by giving him the vision.

After having the darshan of  the Lord in his full divine form, a delighted Dhirdharashtra requests  Lord Krishna to restore his blindness, for he does not want to see anything else after having darshan of  the Lord himself.

 IMG_2175 Years after this episode, Arjuna’s grandson Janmejaya, who listened to the Mahabharata story from Vaisampaayana wanted to experience  the moment (that of Lord Krishna Vishwaroopa darshanam )  .

He undertook penance at this place.  Lord Krishna is believed to have  graced him with darshan , as ‘Pandava Dhootha’, in the same way he had in the Mahabharatha episode. Having played the role of a messenger for the Pandavas,  Lord Krishna, here at this temple, is known by that same name  Pandava Dhootha Perumal.

 It is said  that in this holy place  there was a 18 day debate between  Swami Ramanuja and Yaghya Moorthy . Having lost the debate to Swamy  Ramanuja, the Scholar is said to have become his disciple and was given the  name to Arulaala Perumal Emberumaanar. Check the appended post below about the saints devotion for JagathAcharyar Swamy Ramanuja ..
