Jambukeswarar Temple, Tiruchirappalli

(4.7/5 based on 180 reviews on the web)
Admire the countless intensely colored sculptures of Jambukeswarar Temple, an important Hindu pilgrimage site in Tiruchirapalli. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, this huge, 1,800-year-old temple centers on an underground stream of mysterious origin, which never goes dry. An intensely colored, flat-top pyramidal tower adorned with elaborate statues covers the water source, which gushes next to an image of Shivalingam. Marvel at a long corridor with 796 carved pillars and observe as the devotees bring in their offerings.
