A great temple for Vittal and Rukmani in Tamilnadu. Maintenance of the Goshala is remarkable. Only disadvantage is the seniors too have to climb a lot of steps. If there was a lift it would be helpful.

Temple is near Kumbakonam to Mayiladuthurai Route. Very well maintained. Once entered inside the temple there will be a feeling that we have come near "GOD" i.e in front of God Krishna. Near kumbakonam Valangaimaan is there. you must visit Mariyamman Koil and Poonaikan Samiyar Temple. Poonaikan Samiyar was a great "Siddhar". He was stayed at valangaimaan famous Doctor's house....

Nice quiet place out of the city in Govindapuram. Temple itself is nice and we are even allowed to touch the feet of the deities. They also have a very nice goshala (cow shelter)
