History of Sri Adikesava Perumal Temple:

It’s fascinating to learn about the Adikesava Perumal Temple Legend. According to legend, Lord Brahma once went to Kancheepuram alone to do Yagna (rituals) without his better half Goddesses Saraswati. Yagya was performed back then with both the husband and the woman present. Lordess Saraswati grew enraged when her name was not mentioned and attempted to drown the Yagna site by taking the form of the river Vegavathi. When Lord Brahma noticed the river’s enraged appearance, he hurried to Lord Vishnu’s rescue and begged for help. When Lordess Saraswati sent a vicious snake to ruin the Yagna, Lord Vishnu adopted the form of Ashtabhuja Perumal and used eight different weapons to fight the snake. After killing all the demons sent by Lordess Saraswati to harm the Yagna, Lord Vishnu eventually defeated the serpent.

It is said that between 4200 BCE and 2700 BCE, 12 outstanding Tamil poets, and saints known as Alvars lived in Kanchipuram. These saints devoted their entire lives to praising Lord Vishnu, and they mentioned 108 Divya Deshams, or sacred locations, where Lord Vishnu lived, in their poetry. In essence, these sacred locations were temples; 105 of them were in India, one was in Nepal, and the other two were beyond the reach of Mother Earth. One of the 108 Divya Deshams established for the devotion of Lord Vishnu is the Adikesava Perumal Temple. Due to the eight hands of the Lord Vishnu deity that resides at the Adikesava Perumal Temple, it is also known as Ashtabhujakaram.
