4.7/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web
Admire countless intensely colored sculptures of Jambukeswarar Temple, an important Hindu pilgrimage site in Tiruchirapalli. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, this huge 1,800 years old temple centers on an underground stream of mysterious origin, which never goes dry. An intensely colored flat-top pyramidal gateway tower with elaborate statues covers the water source gushing next to an image of Shivalingam. Marvel at a long corridor with 796 carved pillars and observe the devotees bring their offerings.

  • I came from chennai to come this temple mainly after seeing periya kovil in morning, reached here at 11.30 had an good dharisanam of jambugeswar I haven't seen the main God in so close. Nandhi to jambugeswar there is a wall having some 9 gap all people's use to see into the gap after dharisanam. There is a small way to the scntm, me and few pilgrims entered in saw jambugeswar very near. No words can explain that feeling. Om namah shivaya. After few min after pooja we all came out. Then walked to see akilandeshwari amman. It was 12 Amman temple was closed then I wait and see the goddess 😃. one of the panja bootha Stalam great experience. Very peaceful temple love to come again and again. Om namah shivaya.. 😊
  • Prehistoric architectural Grandeur !!! Gorgeous huge temple monument... The prime deity is residing inside a cave... PARKING might be a trouble!!! Well maintained!!! Thevaram songs written on the walls describe the deity of this temple... There is also an idol of the Chozha king who constructed this temple... Must visit place if u love architectures..
