  • Peaseful atmosphere and Surrounding,. the cool haze runs all time from the West towards East that's very nice to pilgrims to keep cool.
  • Excellent architecture and a very peaceful place. Awesome breeze throughout the temple. Take your time and go through each and every corner of the temple, you will find excellent carvings. A must visit if you are anywhere around thenkasi. Also even you visit Courtallam, you should see this as well as it's very close (roughly 30 mins drive) to the same.
  • Tenkasi....Wind architecture wonder .....one of the strong testimonial of Tamil architectural skill... you would feel the breeze of wind vice versa on both sides on gopuram.....
  • Literally a stunning temple. We were standing in awe and shock to see such a majestic gopuram standing so tall and so graceful, and even more shocking was the fact that this temple which is about 180 feet tall, was built in our present time. Really do we have people to do this type of work now. As per the official website it was built or opened in the year 1990. Amazing, full marks to the guys who built this temple. Plus the fact, the marvel of the window blowing two directions. A temple built around the 13th century by the pandya king, who was getting ready to go to Kasi for a darshan of the lord. Lord stopped him, adviced him against such a long travel and told him to come to this place, where he found the linga and built the temple. A temple facing east, Temple with kodimaram, temple with a huge fantastic rajagopuram facing east too. Swami name : Viswanathar Ambal name: Ulagamman There is a belief that if you cant go to kasi, it is better to come and pray in this temple, and your prayers will be answered. A temple definitely one must visit in one's lifetime.
  •   It is firmly believed that worshipping the Lord in this temple would bring in as much benefits to the devotee if he/she worships the Lord in Kasi – Varanasi.  The worship brings peace of mind to the devotee.
