The legend regarding the temple revolves around the Boodha Ganas, who requested Lord Vishnu to relieve them from a curse by Lord Shiva. Vishnu created a spring here through a serpent named Anantha. He gave his darshan to the Bhoodha Ganas from the bank of the theertha which relieved them of the curse. To show their gratitude, the Bhoodha Ganas erected this temple for Adi Kesava Perumal.
This temple is part of the famous Kanchipuram Divya Desam Yatra.
The temple is built in Dravidian style of architecture with intricately and colourfully sculpted tiered gopuram. There is a mandap in front of the temple where Sri Ramanuja was born. The deity of the Lord is in granite and in the standing posture. There is a shrine for Garuda facing Adi Kesava. There is a vast temple pond next to the shrine with a small stone manadapa in the centre.
Sri Adi Kesava Perumal temple timings 6.30 AM to 12.00 AM and from 4.00 PM to 8.30 PM. After the Thirumanjanam of Lord Ramanuja, the clothes of the idol is given as prasadham to the devotees. It is believed that this cloth will cure many diseases.
