Description: Although it is not possible for the non-Hindu to see or to photograph the image in the central shrine at the Varadarajaswamy temple, this is described as a true representation of the figure in the inner shrine. This image of Vishnu is carved on one side of a pillar in the hall of pillars, and is usually visited by the pilgrims who decorate the carving with colored powders, making the sign of the devotees of Vishnu, and putting oil and holy water on the image.
