Thiruvidanthai is located on the
Chennai - Kovalam road on the way to Mahabalipuram.
The Moolavar is Lakshmi Varaha Perumal
seen in the standing posture facing East. The utsavar is Nithyakalyana
Perumal, seen with a pottu in his jaw. There are sannadhis for Andal,
Sri Ranganathar, Sri Ranganayagi. The Lord merged the 360 daughters
of Kaalava maharishi into one maiden & seated her on his lap. It is
considered that he married the 360 maidens one day after the other, &
hence he is seen in Kalyana kolam everyday, hence the name Nithya Kalyana
Perumal. Since he is holding the Devi on his left (Idam in Tamil
- left), the place is known as Thiru Ida Endhai.
