  • Nagaraja in sculpture throughout many pilgrims as in all temples. they put their clothes of pilgrims 41 or 48 days I can't remember, mem to work and they go do the tour of the temples of tamil nadou by bus or mini van, very cheerful and colorful. the colors depend on what they required or honour: Red I think fertility.

  • This is famous for Raghu temple and people generally go here if they have some obstacles and they think they need to do some 'parihara'. This and Oppillapan temple are very near by 
  • all these temples to Madurai - Tiruchirappalli are at first glance similar architectures but it must be a few hours and feel the essence of Hindu - was the only tourist - and talking with the guard in bad English both told me that there is no Western turismtas should visit them and take advantage of these wonders

  • Temple has very good infrastructure, and with very old trees. You can here birds sound in every trees and makes you full refreshment.
  • One of the most ancient temples in Kumbakonam, the small Nageswara Swami – Shiva temple, one of the finest early Chola temples, is noted for the quality of its sculpture, thought to have been completed a few years into the reign of Parantaka I (907 – 940). Adisesha and Surya had worshipped Sri Nageswara here. When Adisesha was groaning under the weight of the world, he came to Kuvinvanam, the present Nageswara temple and did penance. Siva and Parvati appeared before Adisesha and blessed him with enough strength. A well in the temple is called Naga Theertham.
  • We can see lots of stoneworks especially the stonewheel is awesome.its fixed in a stone anchor and looks it can be rotated too.... But poorly maintained.
  • One of the thevaram paadal Petra Shiva sthalam in Chozha Nadu Kaveri thenkarai.. Padakacheri Ramalinga swamikal begged by hanging a. Chembu on his neck and constructed the Rajagopuram...
  • Very Serene.Shiva temple known here as Nageshwarar
