Velleeswarar Temple is a Hindu sanctuary in Mylapore, Chennai. The sanctuary is overseen by the HRCE Department of the Government of Tamil Nadu. It is arranged around 2 kilometers from Sri Kamakshi Amman Temple in Mangadu. As indicated by well known legend, when the lord Mahabali was going to allow Vamana, a manifestation of Vishnu, blessings of land as a major aspect of Yagna Dhana, Sukracharya, the preceptor of the Asuras, attempted to stop him as he presumed injustice. In any case, Bali was unyielding that he can't stop Dhaanam to a youthful Brahmachari Brahmin. Sukracharya at that point changed his shape to that of a honey bee and went into the spout of the kamandalu, blocking water stream. Ruler Vamana on observing this, pricked the spout with an edge of darbha grass, which blinded Sukracharya.
Sukracharya ruminated upon Shiva at this place in Mylapore and recovered his visual perception. Vellee implies Sukra, and Velleeswara is Lord of Sukracharya. Sri Sukracharya adored the Lord here and got back the vision he lost because of Lord Vamana. There are numerous who say that except if they can see God with their very own eyes, they can't trust in the Divine. It is this visual perception that Sri Velleeswarar can favor us with. It is Sri Velleeswarar who can shield us from falling prey to the wants excited by our eyes. In the material world, Sri Velleeswara is the heavenly eye specialist who can take care of eye related sicknesses and issues.
