Kaliyuga Varadaraja Perumal Temple is a Hindu temple located at Kallankurichi in the Ariyalur district of Tamil Nadu, India. It is dedicated to Vishnu. Vanniyars of Udayarpalayam created a Perumal Temple near Ariyalur in the early 18th Century AD that now attracts lakhs of devotees during Brahmotsavam and Puratasi.
It is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Idol of Lord Hanuman was installed nearby the main presiding deity. The temple is about 250 years old built by a man called Mangaan Padaiyaachi.
The Kaliyuga Varadaraja Perumal Temple is about 250 years old and built by a cowherd on the spot of a 12-feet high post believed to have miraculous powers. The post now forms the main deity in the temple. Close by is the idol of Hanuman. There are no idols as presiding deity in the sanctum sanctorum.
Pujas are performed only to this post. There is no Sorgavasal (Gates of Heaven) on the Vaikunda Ekadasi day as traditionally seen in Vaishnavite temples. Instead, procession deity is taken on procession. There is no separate shrine for Mother.
As the presiding deity is believed to be in the post in the sanctum, it implies that Mothers too are with the Lord in the post. Procession deity Kaliyuga Varadaraja Perumal graces with Mothers Sridevi and Bhoodevi.
The ten Avatars of Lord Sri Vishnu are aesthetically sculpted in the Dasavathara Mandap in the temple. The temple is noted for its sculptures. The sacred tree Mahalingamaram is near the sanctum still green as in ancient days.
