Had excellent darshan of Lord Uppliappan and Goddess Bhoomi Devi. Whoever want to see Venkatachalapathi for sure, Lord provides Darshan to one's heart content. It has been a very pleasant and relaxing experience. If you wanted to do Anga Pradatchanam in Tirupathi and could not do it for any reason, you can fulfil the same here. (Reverse is not accepted - i..e you wanted to do Anga Pradatchanam at Uppliappan Koil - you MUST do it here only).

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 using this chattharam. Also, note that you can only purchase an archanai ticket after tonsure and bath.

Upon entering the temple we sought blessings from the elephant. There was a kalyana utsavam going on at that time. We had a good darshan of the moolavar followed by darshan of utsavar and hanuman. The courtyard of the temple is so beautiful with paintings of thirupaavai, dasavatharam and azhwars on the walls. Our kids liked this a lot! We were also happy to get chakara pongal prasadham.

Overall, it was a spiritually satisfactory visit which we enjoyed immensely.

The temple God is supposed to be the brother of Lord Srinivasa. The temple diety is huge in height and surreal.

The only problem in these kumbakonam temples is though they carry a such marvellous history, it cant be understood if you are non tamilian.

As the tamil word uppu means salt, the temple has a tradition that the god is been offered everyday his food without salt and sour (puli means tamarind in tamil). The temple is very famous as this is next only to Tirumala, Tirupati Temple, for the Kumbakonam and surrounding area flocks. The Deity of this temple is quiet big and Magnificent in standing posture as is. The temple is not clean as the most of the premises is with spider web and almost the highly painted and most coloured temple is been turning into black dungeon with the camphor settling on the spider web.

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 the same is added with salt and there for no difference will be encountered.

The story behind why these prasadams are prepared without Salt is that when God came to marry Lakshmi, she was a little girl and did not know how to cook. She prepared the dishes without salt and God accepted this. No wonder!!!. I have visited this temple many a times, and it still looks new..This is infact, my husband's home town....

Got a very good Darshan. A small temple considering the gigantic temples around.The people inside are very helpful to guide you around. The Darshan of the deity can be seen from very near as against the multitude of inner sanctums other temples around have.
