Thiru Mukkoodal Appan Venkatesa Perumal Temple, Kanchipuram

Thiru Mukkoodal Appan Venkatesa Perumal Temple, Kanchipuram
Appan Venkatesa Perumal Temple is dedicated to Hindu God Vishnu located at Thiru Mukkoodal Village in Kanchipuram District of Tamilnadu. The temple is beautifully located on the banks of the river giving a scenic view. The compound of the temple is just on the shore of the river is a wonderful site to see. Lakshmi Narasimhar temple is located in Pazhaya Seevaram on one side of the river and Appan Prasanna Venkatesa Perumal temple on the other bank of the river. This temple is said to be 1200 years old, as the oldest inscription found in this temple belongs to 9th Century.





This temple is said to have built by a king ruling Thondai Mandalam (with capital as Kanchipuram), by name Raja Thondaiman Chakravarthy. Appar Thirunavukarasar has sung praise of the Lord. Hence, this is also referred to as the ‘Appar’ koil. Thiru Mukkoodal got its name as three rivers Palar (Ksheera Nadhi), Vegavathi (Saraswathi) and Cheyyar (Bahu Nadhi) merge together at this place. This place is called Triveni Sangamam and is considered equivalent to Ganges. Taking bath here is considered as holy as bathing in Prayag. 





This is an ASI maintained temple and once this village was flourishing with Vedic College, Ayurvedic hospital and hostels. Appan Venkatesa Perumal is standing on an (Shiva linga) Avudaiyar which is very rare to see. Lord changed his original Sayana Kolam to provide darshan to Thondaiman Chakravarthy in a standing posture. Tirupathi Lord sent his Original Conch and Chakra, to the king, which is now seen here at this temple.





Varadar makes his annual trip to Thiru Mukkoodal on Maatu Pongal day. The Temple is located at about 70kms South of Madras, off the Chengalpet-Kanchipuram SH58 at the confluence of three rivers – Palar, Vegavathi and Cheyyar. The temple is one km South of Pazhaya Seevaram Narasimha temple on the Salavakkam Highway.
