The temple is one of the most sacred temples in Tamilnadu. No words to describe the deity. The temple was quite clean and well maintained. Easily accessible from kumbakonam. Visit there for a divine experience.

the main god is perumal. it was so stunning. they have an elephant in the house which is a big hit with the kids. most of the other temple in kumbokonam are shivan temples. so this was a welcome change.

Though this temple is popular, but cleanliness is a question mark. As a holy place you can redeem your sin. But as a visiting place the place need improvement.

We had prarthana and completed by us. The temple admin is not professional and very rude sevaks. Neat and clean also.
