Arulmigu Pallikonda Perumal Temple

The Artha Mandapam is next to the sanctum sanctorum of Lord Vakeeswara. The sculptures of Saptha Madhas, Ganesha, Veerabadra, Lords Shiva and Vishnu are carved in the hill temple. The sculptures of group of deities as Kalaikambal, Mahishasuramardini are outstanding examples of the skill of temple architecture. The Mandap near the cave is based on the Vijaya Nagara style. Following the Pallava style, the Dwarapalakas (Security before the sanctum sanctorum) have only two hands against four hands traditionally we see in temples.The Shiva temple is more ancient than the Vishnu temple according to findings of the ASI. It belongs to the Pallava period. Sanctum sanctorum of Lord Sri Ranganatha also has a front mandap. The pillars are standing on a lion looking majestically. This belongs to Pallava style. The figures of Lords Narasimha and Varahamurthi and Perumal with His consorts are carved beautifully in the walls of this mandap. Lord Sri Ranganatha in the sanctum sanctorum graces the devotees in his reclining posture with Lord Brahmma appearing from His naval. Divine serpent Adisesha with its hoods appear as an umbrella to Lord. In the wall behind, there are sculptures of both Devas and demons. The sculpture style of Lord Sri Ranganatha in His Anathasayana style – reclining style is very beautiful. The shrine of Thayar appears to be too ancient. There is also am epigraphic evidence that one Achuthappa Naicker contributed liberally for the temple in 16th century.
