Has the tendency to calm your mind. Beautiful perumal. Sakkarapongal is very famous here. Most of the houses in the temple street will provide you with homely food for a very nominal charge.

The temple is very small and devotional. Lord Shri Vishnu in standing position looks so grand and gorgeous. This temple don't have much ancient sculptures or icons... As a part of renovation, they portrayed 108 divya shekthrams which looks good but that is replacing the olden original look of the temple. The elephant in this temple was so active and... More

This temple is very close to Ragu temple and is about 10 km from kumbakonam. I have visited this temple on 13th August 2016. The deity Uppiliappan means oppilla appan, uncomparable to any one. The deity is magnificent in size and height and is very similar to Venkatasalapathy in Thirupathi. The punniya you get by praying Uppiliappan and Tirupathi venkatasalapathy... More

Idol of the main diety is magnanimous and beautiful. Some consider this temple to be more sacred than Tirupati. One gets lot of time to view the god unlike Tirupati and it was extremely humbling to see the idol, the first thought that came to me was "Kalyanadbhuta gaatraya......". I was told not to miss the pongle prasada which is... More

I researched the important temples before hand and made a map to visit these, it was a wonderful experience, keep you pondering about how scientifically advanced they could be to build something like this 1000 years ago.
