The temple built in the period of medieval Cholas in the 9th century and have three-tiered raja gopuras. Here, Lord Chitragupta blesses his devotees with the seated procedure along with a pen in his right hand and scripts in his left hand, As per Hindu belief, once Lord Shiva wanted to establish the moral in the world so he needed to calculate the good and bad of the people and give rewards and punishment, which he needed to assign duty for a person. so he drew the picture in a gold plate which becomes the deity as Chitragupta. He formed from the Chitra so he called with the name as Chitragupta. Finally, Lord Shiva ordered to Chitragupta that account good and bad of people and take into Yama who called death God. The temple was expanded by other dynasties after Cholas that shown in the above image.

When humans do sins in their life, they have to feel that every sins are accountable by Chitragupta which determines our soul to get rewards or punishable after death. when I have entered in this temple and seen the pen and script of Chitragupta hands thought me that, The Pallavas and Cholas who administered Kanchipuram their good and deed were tracked by Chitragupta and submitted to the Yama.
