The Prasanna Venkatesa Perumal temple is a place of worship dedicated to Lord Venkateswara located in the district of Kanchipuram. This resplendent temple has a unique idol of Lord Venkateswara which is seen standing on a shivalinga. The glorious temple was built about 500 years ago and is of immense religious importance to the Hindu community, especially the followers of Lord Perumal.
This kind of a representation is not seen anywhere else in the world, and it signifies that Lord Venkateswara/Perumal and Lord Shiva are equal and that they teach us the same beliefs and way of life in different forms. It is believed that the deity is highly powerful and grants every wish that is sincerely asked.
Devotees often light clarified butter (ghee) lamps, perform Tulsi Archana, and offer flowers and garlands to please Lord Perumal. The temple has a serene and divine vibe that visitors often talk about as it takes them a step closer to the almighty. Tourists flock here in large numbers seeking blessings from the Lord especially on the day of Vaikunta Ekadasi. A grand procession of Lord Perumal is held on this day that occurs in the Hindu month of Dhanu in between December and January every year.
