Thiruparkadal Twin Temples (Sri Prasanna Venkatesa Perumal and Ranganathar Temples) - Chennai Bangalore Highway
Two rivers on either side. Three murthis in between. Can you imagine a place like this. Welcome to Thiruparkadal - Vishnu's abode (on earth) - a small sleeping village 2 kms from Kaveripakkam on Chennai Bangalore Highway Led by Aditya Kolluri (he was bit scared to lead a zooming Tempo Traveller driven by a stylish Teja anna), we bhakta kotis visited the twin temple. As usual we got to know some highlights after leaving the temple. So here is it for others The Prasanna Venkatesa Perumal Temple has both Shiva and Vishnu and the Ranganatha Swamy Temple has Vishnu and Brahma - therefore it is a Trimurthi Kshetram Vishnu emanates from Avudayar (Shivling) and Brahma from Vishnu's navel!
