A very old temple and the town is named after the presiding deity. Worth a visit. A huge temple with good sculptures right in the center of the town. Best to go in the mornings.

When you have such a big temple in centre of town, it really tells you a lot about the city. Lord Shiva is the main deity in the temple. Temple always is filled with people. Quite a few shops near the temple main entrance, which makes that entrance a bit crowded, but other entrances are relatively crowd free.

Good Pillars and Carvings inside Temple. Must visit Temple.

Do not miss this temple if you're visiting Kumbakonam. This temple has the lord shiva's lingam in the form of a kumbh (pot) and hence the name.
