Adhi Chenna Kesava Perumal Temple, West Mambalam, Chennai

Adhi Chenna Kesava Perumal Temple, West Mambalam, Chennai
Adhikesava Perumal Temple is a Hindu Temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu located in West Mambalam in Chennai City in Tamilnadu. Presiding Deity is called as Adhi Chenna Kesava Perumal and Mother is called as Senkamalavalli Thayar. It is said that Sri Ramanuja visited this temple and stayed here for some time. 




Etymology
Mambalam:
Mambalam is believed to have derived its name from the existence of Maha Vilvam trees in the locality, which in due course become Mavilam and then Mambalam.
Mylai Mel Ambalam:
In ancient times it was known as Mylai Mel Ambalam (place located on the west of Mylai). Then it changed to Mel-Ambalam. Then Mel (top) changed into west and Ambalam changed into Mambalam. Therefore, now it is known as West Mambalam.
Legends
According to legend, Madavachar, an ardent devotee of Lord Ranganathar constructed the temple here when he had a dream from Lord Vishnu. Madavachar, who stayed at Srirangam had no children. He ardently prayed to Lord Ranganathar. The Lord appeared in his dream and told him to go to Tiruvallikeni (Triplicane) and worship Lord Parthasarathy and also to Tirupati and worship Lord Venkateswara. Madavachar and his wife started the journey on foot and on the way, came to a forest. They were frightened and started chanting the Lord's name. The Lord appeared in the form of a 10-year-old boy, took them to a dilapidated mandapam and gave them food.



At night Lord Vishnu appeared before Madavachar in a vision and told him to dig that place and recover his idol. Next morning, Madavachar with the help of local people dug the place and got the idols of Lord Kesava and the Goddess. Madavachar constructed the temple there with the help of local people. Later Madavachar went to Tiruvallikeni and Tirupati and worshipped the Lord there. He was blessed with a son. Lord Venkateswara instructed him to go to Mabilam (West Mambalam) and continue to worship Lord Kesava there.
