In most Vishnu temples, there will be a sannidhi for Garuda facing the Moolavar. In Varadaraja temple in Kanchipuram, there is a Garuda sanndhi for Narasimha shrine, but not for Varadaraja shrine which is atop the Narasimha shrine. If Varadaraja shrine is on a small hillock as opposed to first floor of the temple and if Narasimha shrine is at the foot of hillock as discussed here then both shrines are different. Then why is there no Garuda sannidhi for Varadaraja shrine?
