This place is about 20 minutes from Kumbakonam closer to Thirunageswaram and Ayyavadi Pratyankara temple. We spent about 30 minutes here - bought the special entry ticket to have a smoother darshan.

Oppiliappan Temple at thirunageswaram is at a distance of 8 Kms from Kumbakonam and is easily accessible by bus. One of the 108 sacred temples of vaishnavas. The deity here is known to be the elder brother of Lord Balaji of Tirupati. A very relaxed place for a peaceful visit.

It isn't crowded. No one's in a hurry to get to the deity. And it's a good place to go to. We also found a little house nearby which served breakfast, homemade and hot.

We visited this temple in the morning after a darshan of Rahu, one of the Navagraha temples. There is a story about this temple, that Lord Vishnu did not want salt to be included in the food prepared for HIM here and hence the name. It is an old Vaishnavite temple with a very large idol of the Lord. Totally... More
