This temple is situated in Kancheepuram, near Sri Varadharajar temple.
The Moolavar is Yadokthakaari, Sonnavannam
seidha Perumal (sonnavannam - as told; seidha - did) seen in bujanga sayanam
posture facing west. Once, when Thirumazhisaialwar called him, The
Lord is said to have taken his snake bed & travelled to see him.
Then when Thirumazhisaialwar asked to lie on his sanke bed, he did that
too. Hence the name Sonnavannam seidha Perumal.
The asuras bade vegavathi river to
run in full spate & destroy the yagna of Brahma. The Lord controlled
the fury of the Vegavathi river in spate. This is the avataara sthalam
Thaayaar - Komalavalli Naachiyaar.
Theertham - Poigai Pushkarini.
