Darshan of god after 40 years -Atthigiri varadar, Kanchi

The pond in vardharaja temple ,kanchipuram,TN houses the shrine of Atthigiri Varadar - the deity carved out of Atthi wood. This deity is not kept for public view. It is preserved under the pond. The Atthigiri Varadar deity is brought out of the pond exactly once in 40 years for a period of 48 days. The last event was in 1979. Atthigiri Varadar will be kept for public viewing again in the year 2019.

This name "Atthigiri" has been derived from the name of the deity in this temple - Atthigiri Varadar. "Atthigiri" means Elephant Mountain. It derives from a long story in Hindu mythology. Atthi is also a type of wood.
