The Lord of KnowledgeOne of the Greatest of the Temples for Vishnu in the World Chettipunyam(About some 500 m to the right of Mahindra City going towards Chengalpattu).It will be a great feeling if you go to that temple

Intricacy->The Chettipunyam Hayagriva:

There were Handrails Planted to manage the Queue But when  i went there it had some 10 or 15 and i soon got the Blessings of the Deity.In Hinduism there were some Major Avatars for Vishnu like Narasima,Vamana,Rama etc..,.But there is also an another Important Avatar of Vishnu called Hayagriva.(Hayagriva has a Horse face and the other parts of the Body is Milky White and he will be seen sitting in the LOTUS) Lord Hayagriva is said to be the Lord of Knowledge and Wisdom and one who Prays him will go far in his life..Hayagriva is the Avatar taken by Vishnu to save the Vedas that were Stolen by demons Madhu and Kaitabha from Brahma..During this avatar he slayed the Demons and recaptured the Vedas and Thought the vedas to Goddess Saraswathi and Brahma and really this Chettipunyam is a Such a Famous temple Built Some 500 years ago..And here Hayagriva has the Consort of Goddess Lakshmi..

Hayagriva can be delineated as a God having a Scowling face and has roaring mouth and protruding teeth and he has a Still of a Warrior to be Precise

So It is one the Greatest Temples in World Undoubtedly
