Nithya Kalyana Prasanna Venkatesa Perumal

Nithya Kalyana Prasanna Venkatesa Perumal

When we hear the name Nithya Kalyana  Perumal , we generally get tuned to the temple in ECR ThiruVidanthai Nithya Kalyana Perumal  built by the pallavas. But this Nithya Kalyana  Perumal  is much unheard to many. I would like to bring in to light about this unique less know temple.

Place: Aappur

Near by place: Singaperumal Kovil , Aappur is 5 km from Singaperumal Kovil

How to Reach: About Aappur: Aappur is a small hamlet near Singaperumal Kovil. Aappur has very less buses frequency. If you are travelling from chennai by bus then you need to board a bus from tambaram which goes via Oragadam. Alternative route would be via Singaperumal Kovil , from Singaperumal Kovil alot of share autos.

This temple is located on top of a hill known as oushadagiri ( Oushada- Medicinal , Giri - Hill ). we need to climb 500 stairs to  get the darshan of  Nithya Kalyana perumal. The temple is erected in conformity with agama shilpa shaastras.
