Veera Raghava Swami Temple (Thiruevvul), Thiruvallur

Veera Raghava Swami Temple (Thiruevvul), Thiruvallur
Veera Raghava Swamy Temple is a Hindu Temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu located at Thiruvallur Town near Chennai City in Thiruvallur District of Tamilnadu. This Temple is also called as Thiruevvul. The temple has a five-tiered Rajagopuram (gateway tower) and enshrined within a granite wall. The complex contains all the shrines and the temple tank is located to the west of the temple. Amavasya days are believed to be auspicious for visiting this temple.



Constructed in Dravidian style of architecture, the temple is glorified in the Divya Prabandha, the early medieval Tamil canon of the Azhwar saints from the 6th – 9th centuries AD. Tiruvallur is one of the Prarthana Sthalams like Tirupati, Oppiliappan Koil and Gunasekaram. It is counted as one among the 108 Divya Desams dedicated to Vishnu. Vishnu is worshipped as Veera Raghava Perumal and his consort Lakshmi as Kanakavalli Thayar.



The temple is believed to be of significant antiquity and is believed to be initiated by the Pallavas of the late 8th century AD, with later contributions at different times from Thanjavur Nayaks. The temple has three inscriptions dating from the Chola period. This temple is under the administration of Sri Ahobila Math, presently presided over by Srimad 46th Azhagiyasingar Srimat Srivan Sadagopa Sri Ranganatha Yatheentra Mahadesigan, as Hereditary Trustee.
