is 5kms from Kumbakonam. The temple is on a small hillock.
There is a hotel called Mami;s Mess near the temple. You get delicious south indian food here. Homely and authentic taste. They also have accommodation at nominal rates..! I am planning to stay here during my next trip..!

Thiruvalanchuzhi and Patteeswaram are quite near to this place..!

  1. So many photos. you have taken photos from the terrace of the temple too. Do they allow photography there? I loved the pictures with parrots.

  2. So many photos-I snap as many as possible-One doesn't which angle turns out good..and represent the actual scene..!
    mmm...! it is not from the terrace..From the I floor (Near the praharam) there is a grill gate towards the terrace... I pointed the lens thru the grill and snapped. A few I could snap keeping the camera over the wall of the terrace...(My 6'1" height helped me there..!)
    You need to get to there to understand what I mean... It is difficult to explain in writing..!

    BTW, Thanks for looking Chitra..I appreciate your patience..

  3. I don't think ,I would strain like you do. A few snaps satisfy me and most of the time we rush from one temple to the other as we want to make most of our visits.

    BTW I had spend real 1 - 11/2 hrs.. going thru' your blog as you had posted so many at one go :)

  4. I mostly use these blogs to recount on my trip at a later point of time. I also normally post as many photos as possible so that it gives a good idea
    Sorry, if it takes so long... Should I reduce the numbers... I find it too time consuming to select photos from the lot.
    Trust your having to spend 1-1/2 hrs is more in positive sense than a complaint...!(lol)

  5. Sridharan,
    Not a complaint, do not mistake me. This is my favourite subject. I appreciate your patience. When I saw all pictures together I just sat thru' the whole thing. keep up the good work. Any time I can also come back and check. Let this be your blog identity. The videos are an added attraction.

  6. I join Chitra. Its unfair on your part. So much payasam in one go!

  7. You are being very Kind..PNS..! Thanks for your nice words...!


Your comments are more important to me than even my post..! I appreciate your time & Thank you..
