  • 100% pure veg
  • Amidst of bustling crowded locality, the moment you enter the temple you're divinely connected. That's the great secret of this temple. A clean and divine place to unwind yourself.
  • Great temple.The temple is quite big and spacious. The priests are very good and are ready to share the history of the temple. Overall a must visit place on a trip to kumbakonam
  • Good temple. Not maintained the dignity. Giving hot prasad in hand without Donna or banana leaves. Worst temple authority. Doing simply like formalities
  • Temple was maintained neatly. Please buy the Kumkum they give in packets there which in produced naturally and it has good fragrance. It is cheap too.
