Shaligram having eastern side three openings 6 chakras; backside one opening and 2 chakras , is known as Chakrapani Shaligram
Lord Vishnu appears in the form of a discus or Chakra to put down the pride of Surya (the Sun), who subsequently became his devotee like Lord Shiva, Lord Chakrapani has a third eye on His forehead.
Lord Vishnu sent his chakra to kill Asura King Jalandasura, the chakra after finishing its job came out of the nether world through the river cauveri in Kumbakonam. At that time, Lord Brahma who was bathing in the river saw the chakra and installed the image of the Sudharshana chakra in this place. Later on Lord Surya, the Sun God was astonished by the glowing Chakra and decided to suppress the same and increased his light to outshine it. Then Lord Vishnu came out of the chakra and diminished his brightness. Lord Surya realised his mistake and prayed to the Lord and became his devotee. He also built this temple for Lord Vishnu who came to be known as “ Chakrapani” in this temple.
