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)

Newly constructed by vittalapura samasthan. Its look like north indian cultures. Krishna avathar pandurenga temple is located on the mayiladuthurai main road from kumbakonam just 10 kms. Cow Shelter is very big from all over india. Very clean and neatness is welcomed by all devotees.
