Sri Kari Varadaraja Perumal temple-Madhavaram in Chennai

Enroute to the Kailasanathar temple I visited this temple.it is built recently but the idols were looking ancient. I could not find much information on this temple. The main sannidhi has Varadaraja perumal with Sridevi and Bhoodevi in  the standing pose . There are separate sannidhis for Kanakavalli thayar, chakrathalwar, andal.It is a small place and I saw the dwelling for the archakas also inside,

Both the Madhavaram temples were built by Nandi Varma pallava in 656 AD I was told

Just outside is the imposing  Anjeneya statueDSC06047DSC06048
