This temple is one of famous temple in Kumbakonam. Since the temple is in main area always heavy crowd on surrounding bit problem faced to park the car might be because of Utsava was going. Neatly maintained and easily got darshan of god.

Deity considered to be alternative to Tirupathi Balaji. Good visit as the temple has a lot of history attached and the deity is very large and beautiful.
