We visited Sri Uppiliappan temple during our trip to Kumbakonam. We performed tonsure at a barber shop located near the temple at a walkable distance. This was followed by a quick bath for the kids at a chattharam (meant to be a rest area for travelers) which is located at the end of that street. You'll need to pay for... More

We visited this temple, early morning, so there was no much crowd and had a peaceful and a lengthy darshan of Lord Vishnu, in standing posture along with Markandeya and Bhoomi devi. The temple is big and very old, traditionally built, by the cholas and the Tanjore Nayaks. Felt very happy and peaceful after the darshan. There was an elephant... More

Visited the temple around 10:45 hrs. Chose to pay for the Special Dharshan but the regular queue would've sufficed. The priest were polite and didn't rush through the service and most certainly did not demand money once they scented a NRI. The temple elephant was a big attraction for the kids, it would bless them on their head if you... More

I have visited this temple with family & friends. The main deity - Lord Krishna was so wonderful to see. The poojas were performed well in the temple, we visited the temple on Saturday morning, so it was more crowded, but really we had a good darshan. Got a real divine feel in the temple.

We visited this temple on December '13 and it is really a nice temple to visit. This is easily reachable and the deities are having immense power and if you pray with utmost devotion, all your wishes will definitely come true. The prasadams offered at this temple is without salt, but if you taste it, it will taste as though... More

before you go out of our hotel, make sure you visit the toilet as there are NO toilets near the temple area..This is the most saddest part of the trip

Visiting on days other than Saturday will give you a lot of time to have a darshan of this beautiful deity. Lord puts on a bigggg smile which makes your tiredness go off. On Saturdays, except the temple to be open till 1.30 AM in the noon... Temple is maintained super clean. Plan to visit Patteeswaram, Thirusakthi muttram and Thirunageswaram.... More
