Sthalam of Poigai Azhwar & Swami Desika. The idol of Lord Atthi
Varadha made of fig (atthi) wood is kept inside the pushkarini and
is brought out only once in 40 years and kept for darshan for ten
days. Garuda seva here is very famous. As per sthala purana, Brahma
conducted yagna here (Ka-Brahma, Anjitha worship) and hence called
Kancheepuram. Pleased with the yagna, the Lord granted a boon and
hence the name Varadaraja. Kancheepuram is considered very holy
by Vaishnavaites as this place helped in propagation of Sri Vaishnavism.
