Beautiful temple. Seeing Varadarajan Perumal in such an ancient and divine setting was worthwhile. The temple has colorful sculptures of all the 108 divya desams. One can feel the presence of God in this temple. Must visit when in Pondicherry.

Situated in the busy area. Not many places to park the car. Car parking is the major problem across Pondy. Temple is well maintained and calm

Beautiful colourings and magnificent craftsmanship all chipped away centuries ago by craftsmen using chisels on granite.
Pretty remarkable.
Remember to dress appropriately.

This is also one of the very old temples in Puduchery. Inner space is calm and soothing. Few small temples or templets are house inside the campus. Murals and idols of deities are nicely crafted and beautifully colored. Most of them represent ancient legends from Hindu scriptures.

This is one of the oldest , well-known and biggest temples in Pondicherry-
this is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. it is located in the Mahatma Gandhi Road of the city. The Deity inside sanctum sanctorum is of Lord Vishnu. Lord Vishnu’s idol is around 5 feet in height. The deity was so beautiful and pleasant as if it is blessing every one.
Lord Vishnu's ten forms are depicted by the statues in the around the main shrine. These are realistic and admirable.
In the temple Lord Narasimha's form is kept behind the main deity.
Apart from Vishnu, Goddess lakshmi is also wprsshiped here. Hanuman and Garuda are other deities present along with Lord Ganesh.
I enojoyed the visit here. I was so satisfied and blessed after the darshans.
Over all a visit to this temple will deginitely make you feel satisfied and blessed.

This was the most easy and satisfying and spiritual visit in minimum time.
