India | Tamil Nadu | Kanchipuram


Pazhayaseevaram, also known as Sripuram and Tirumukkoodal, is a little village, about 15 km east of Kanchipuram on the road to Chengalpattu. The place is renowned for a temple of Lord Narasimha atop a small hillock and the Venkatesa Perumal Temple. It is said that, here, Lord Narasimha was pacified by Goddess Lakshmi and hence the place came to be known after her as Sripuram, and later became Seevaram.

The village is also marked by the confluence of three rivers ó Palar, Cheyyar and Vegavathi. The three rivers merge near the temple on the hillock, known as Dakshina Prayag.
