The place Parrikkal is about 3 kms from Vizhupuram to Ulunderpet Road.

Sri Lakshmi Narasimhar is seen seated facing east under Ashtakona Vimanam in this temple.

    It is been amazing visiting the the blog and I am feeling blessed to view the pictures and of the temples I can do any thing to visit such temples and I am very much interested to travel such places with alike minded people.
