Aadhi Kumbeswarar temple in kumbakonam is a Shiva temple in the famous town of Kumbakonam in central Tamil Nadu. The temple is situated in the center of town and its around 1000 years old. The history of temple says that the earth was destroyed at the end of previous yuga and at the re start of Kaliyuga, Lord Bhrama (The creator) carried a pot (Kumba) which contains seeds to recreate all the living things in the earth. Lord shiva shoot an arrow at the pot which was carried by Lord Bhrama and the seeds in the pot fell all over the earth. This whole episode happened at the place which is current day Kumbakonam. So it would make sense if we say that Kumbakonam and Aadhi kumbeswarer temple are the origin point of Kaliyuga. We have lot of temples around Kumbakonam. It’s a enjoyable place of spiritual tourist.
