KUMBHAKONAM - ADIKUMBHESWARAR TIRUKKOVIL

The Temple Complex

The Kumbheswarar Tirukkovil is situated in the centre of the city. It has four prakarams and scores of
minishrines with big mandapas. The main tower is 128 feet high and it dominates the city by its height and beauty. And it is seen for miles around. The famous Sthalavriksha - Vanni tree is found in the third prakara, which houses a beautiful shrine with a huge icon of Vinayaka. It is locally known as Adi Vinayaka, perhaps for the reason, similar ones in other places came only next to it in point of time. The Tirukkovil contains many worthseeing sculptural marvels bearing the stamp of Dravidian style. Of them, the Navagraha mandapam treasures up a master piece - a single stone adorned with the carvings of the 27 Nakshatras and 12 Rasis is installed here and it is the biggest draw of this Tirukkovil. Another, the Subrahmanya image with six heads but six hands, and stone cut Nadaswarams - done artistically attract the visitors and receive due veneration. Besides this big temple there are twelve more famous Sivan Tirukkovils, among which Nageswar Tirukkovil, Someswara Tirukkovil, Kasi Viswanathar Tirukkovil, Abhimukeswar Tirukkovil, Goutameeswar Tirukkovil and Bhanupureeswar Tirukkovil deserve indispensable visitation.
