Chennai: A unique temple dedicated to Lord Krishna – Arulmighu Sri Chaturveda Navaneetha Santhana Krishna, where four cows representing the four Vedas are depicted along with the image of Krishna, will be consecrated on Jan. 22.
The four cows are seated in front of His idol while the Lord with Abhayahasta will be in a child’s form with butter in His hand.
The temple, which has been raised on the land donated by one Mari and his family, at Andarkuppam post in North Chennai, is all set for Kumbhabhishekam on Jan. 21. The construction of the temple had commenced on Sept. 29, 2013 and completed recently.
“This is one of the unique forms of Lord Krishna and it cannot be found anywhere. The Hindus consider cows as sacred and here in this temple the cows are depicted as the four Vedas and are seen facing the Lord,” says V. Subramanian of Jan Kalyan.
"This is the first such temple in the State," he added. The idols were sculpted by Shankaranarayana Sthapathi. The Ashtabandana Maha Kumbhabhishekam will be performed between 9.20 and 10.50 am by priests led by Sri Balaji Shastry under the guidance of Yogi Gajanad Saraswathy swamy and Mr. V. Subramanian. Madhavaram MLA S. Sudharsanam will be the special guest at the function.
