  • Such an amazing temple ever seen.. Would highly recommend people to visit here because of the big structure and age of temple.. Its not so popular but its a must visit and watch one. It has 4 entrances and a pond in east gate.. Must walk so much to see all the gods..
  • Historically significant, one of the temple unanimously suggested by astrologers for important rituals. Mahalingaswamy bestows with grace in clearing all the hurdles in life. This temple has a huge area, will take upto 2 hours to finish worshipping all shrines. Architectural aesthetics, an auspicious place to spend time with family. Especially on Full moon day, many devotees would pay visits and perform rituals
  • There are 149 inscriptions associated with the temple indicating contributions from Pandyas, Cholas, Thanjavur Nayaks and Thanjavur Maratha kingdom. The oldest parts of the present masonry structure were built during the Chola dynasty in the 9th century, while later expansions, including the towering gopuram gatehouses, are attributed to later periods, up to the Thanjavur Nayaks during the 16th century. The temple complex is one of the largest in the state and it houses four gateway towers known as gopurams. The temple has numerous shrines, with those of Mahalingeswaraswamy, Pirguchuntaragujambigai and Mookambigai being the most prominent. The temple complex houses many halls and three precincts; the most notable is the second precinct built during the Vijayanagar period that has many sculptures.
