Srirangam Srimath Andavan Ashramam took over this temple in Villivakkam, in October, 2010, as per the wishes of its original founder Sri  Veerapuram Krishnamachariar.
This is a privately managed temple and is managed by a committee appointed  by  Srimath Andavan , headed  by Sri R Srinivasan.
The deities installed in this Temple are  Sri  Srinivasa Perumal, Sri Padmavathi  Thayar,  Sri  Ramar, Sri  Anjaneyar and Sri Chakrathazhwar.
The location of this Temple is in a central residential locality, many of them are employees of TVS group companies.
As per the wishes of His Holiness Srimath Andavan  ,  it is decided to improve the facilities in this Temple and to make it perfect in all aspects of Temple architecture and Pancharatra  Agama sastras.
Once renovated, the Temple will have main Sannathi for Sri Srinivasar and Sri Alarmelmangai Thayaar, followed by Uthsava Murthees of Perumal and Thayaar, Sri Ramar, Sri Namamzhwar, Sri Andal, Sri Ramanujar, Swamy Desikan in the Ardha Mandapam. Stone Idols Dwara Balakars , Sri Garudan, Sri Lakshmi Hayagreevar, Sri Lakshmi Varahar and Sri lakshmi Narasimhar also find a place in the temple.
This temple is well known for the Anjaneyar, both Moolavar and Uthsavar. They will be installed at a special place at the entrance of Ardha Mandapam, in such a way Tirumanjanams can be conducted. 
The existing Chakrathazhwar Sannathi will be  repositioned , so that  there will be a good view of  Perumal  and Thayar  from the entrance to the temple itself.
To facilitate early completion of all the works as stated above , Balalayam function was held on  26th  April , 2012. Renovation work under the able  guidance  of  well  known  sthapathis has started.
