Kari Krishna Perumal Temple, Thiruayarpadi, Thiruvallur

History
The temple was built by the Chola king Karikala II, and that is why the deity has the prefix Kari before his name. The present temple with its carved stone pillars must have been built much later than Karikalan’s time. Maybe the temple built by Karikala crumbled in the course of time and was later replaced with the present one by one of his descendants. The temple is well maintained.
