    A lively spot with some good artwork, this temple has no particular history of note, but it's easy to get to. Probably the only Hindu temple you'll visit in Pondicherry. Nice, but nothing really special.

    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.

    The temple is small and crowdy with architectural beauty of general south India. The place is dedicated to the Mata Shakti(Durga).

    The temple has a huge campus spread over a sprawling 70 acres. The most amazing part, to me, was the parabolic dome, studded with precious stones and metals.

    Gengavaraga Nadeeswarar Temple is an ancient temple on the south bank of Sankaraparani River (Varaga Nadhi). It is located near Villiannur Town in Pondicherry. This place is equal to Kasi hence it was called Thiru Kasi which later on got name as Thirukanji. The Presiding Gods are believed to be more than 3000 years old. The temple got destroyed in Floods around 200 years ago and most of the Idols were retrieved and placed near the banks of Sankaraparani River (Varaga Nadhi) and recently a new temple has been built. The main idol was established by Sage Kashyap. A beautiful and quite location.

    This is a beautifully decorated ancient temple with so many small temples within the premises and also a stagnant water pond at the back side with so many white fish in it. The most attractive part is the nicely depicted murals covering myths from our ancient scriptures.
