  • 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.

  • 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.
