Jambukeswarar Temple, Tiruchirappalli
(4.7/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • This is a spectacular temple. Take your time and enjoy the great stone work and a true wonder. Lovely carvings of elephants. One shows an elephant escaping from a spiders Web.

Visit barefoot, sometimes not only Hindus. And anyway the evening hours to go! Worshippers here in Japanese are rare, everyone was friendly.
