Varadharaja Perumal Temple, Injimedu, Thiruvannamalai
Sri Varadharaja Perumal Temple is dedicated to Hindu God Vishnu located at Injimedu Village in Thiruvannamalai District of Tamilnadu. Srimath Azhagiya Singar 45th Jeeyar had a great affinity towards Kanchi Sri Varadhar. So, as per his wish, Sri Varadhar and Sri Perundevi Thaayar are installed in this temple. Injimedu, also known as Sri Narasimhapuram, is located on the banks of Cheyyar (Bahunadhi) 24 km from Vandavasi and 140 km from Chennai and was established by Sixth Jeeyar of Sri Ahobila Madam Sri Shasta Parankusa Yatheendra Mahadesikan.

Injimedu Sri Perundevi Nayaki Sametha Sri Varadaraja Perumal Temple belongs to Sri Ahobila Mutt Aadhinam. It is believed that various yagnas were performed in this village for Lord Sriman Narayanan and thus called as Yagnamedu (Yagna Vedhikai) which over the years came to be known as Injimedu. This is the birth place of two of the Jeeyars of Sri Ahobila Mutt: the 34th Pontiff Sri Sadagopa Ramanuja Yatheendra Mahadesikan and the 42nd Pontiff Sri Sriranga Sadagopa Yatheendra Mahadesikan.
