  • Beautiful main DEITY. Awesome temple. Cleanly maintained. Wonderful tank. Elephant need not give blessings. A not to be missed place.
  • Good place just in-between thirunageswaram and Iyyavadi. Big temple and one should be such a punyatham to have dharshan of the almighty. Importance of the time is that no salt is added in any prasads offered to god
  • Very divine and very peaceful after going this temple all are going at least one time and I hope one time u go and next time u going to temple automatically
  • One of the 108 sacred vishnu temples... Must visit place in kumbakonam surrounding...
