Bhaktavatsala Perumal Temple, Thiruninravur, Thiruvallur

Bhaktavatsala Perumal Temple, Thiruninravur, Thiruvallur
Bhaktavatsala Perumal Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu located at Thirunindravur near Chennai City in Thiruvallur District of Tamilnadu. Constructed in the 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. It is one of the 108 Divya Desam dedicated to Vishnu, who is worshipped as Bhaktavatsala Perumal and his consort Lakshmi as Ennai Petra Thayar. Thirunindravur is also the home town of Pusalar, the Nayanar saint.

The temple is believed to have been built by the Pallavas of the late 8th century AD, with later contributions from Medieval Cholas and Vijayanagar kings. A granite wall surrounds the temple, enclosing all the shrines and two bodies of water. There is a five-tiered Rajagopuram, the temple's gateway tower, in the temple. Six daily rituals and three yearly festivals are held at the temple. The temple is maintained and administered by the Hindu Religious and Endowment Board of the Government of Tamil Nadu. This sthalam is under the control of Periya Jeeyar of Tirupathi - Tirumala. The Temple is situated very close to the Hridayaleeswarar Temple in Thiruninravur.

The temple was built during the Pallava period of 9th century as seen from the various inscriptions in the temple.

There are inscriptions from the later Chola kings like Rajendra Chola II (1051–1063 AD), Vira Rajendra (1063–1070 AD) and Rajaraja Chola II (1146–1173 AD). The Pallava inscriptions mention this place as Ninravur and some of them quote it as Virudhurajabhayankar-chaturvertimangalam, a sub-division of Punarkottam.
