I have noticed and shared you how the art and architecture combine in Kailasanathar temple in one of my posts why I love Kanchi kailasanathar temple. There is another temple in Kanchipuram praises the art of Pallavas along with beautiful panels and carvings. The temple has marked almost two lakh people visited for Ekadashi next to Sri Rangam and it is included in 14 Divyadesams of Kanchipuram and 108 Divyadesams of the world, Above words, are exactly connected to Vaikuntha Perumal Temple. The Vaikuntha Perumal Temple also called as Parameshwara Vishnugraham which was mentioned in Azhwar pasuram and Paramecchura Vinnagaram mentioned in Pallavas Inscriptions. The beautiful lion sculptures of the temple given in the above image.

Architecture Of Temple
This is the unique temple of Kanchipuram which we can see the three forms of Vishnu. In the ground floor of the temple sanctum, we can see the Vishnu as Vaikunthan in sitting posture, and the first floor of the temple we can see the Vishnu as Arankanathan in reclining posture and second floor of the temple we can see Vishnu in a standing posture. The temple was constructed by the Pallava king Nadivarman II in his reign 731 AD To 796 A.D.  There are a lot of panels in the temple wall showing beautiful sculptures and carvings such as Brahma, Angiras, Kings, and Queens, etc. I have known later God created humans and again humans creating God through their art. The above image was taken in the temple entrance.

Analysis Of The Temple
Thirumangai azhwar was sung about the temple in his hymns and he was lived in the same century when Nandivarman reign. The 1300 years old temple has been an individual deity of Vaikundavalli who consort of Vaikunthanathan. The temple panels have established the donation of Pallavas and other dynasties. The temple was monitored in the Archaeological Survey of India. The shore temple of Mahabalipuram expresses the art of Narasimhavarman, Big temple of Tanjore expresses the art of Raja Raja Cholan similar Parameshwara vishnugraham establishes the art of Nandivarman II. Above image was taken in the temple panels.
