Temples And Legends Of Tamilnadu Introduction

Mythologically, the third incarnation of Vishnu was in the- form of Varaha, the Boar. There are a number of temples dedicated to Lord 'Vishnu in the aspect of this incarnation. One of such famous temples is at Tiruvadantai, 27 miles from Madras towards south on the way to Mahabalipuram. The temple is in an interior village, frequented by Vaishnavites, particularly on Vaikuntha Ekadashi day. The annual festival of repute and interest is performed in Tai (January - February), when the presiding deity is taken to Kulattur near Puduppakkam Hill in a palanquin with exquisitely carved ivory images depicting the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu.
