Of the temples many lying on the sacred bank of Cauvery, the Thiagarajaswamy Tirukkovil at Tiruvaiyur merits ardent mention and indispensable adoration. It has many plus points. This is the sacred scene of Saptasthanamam, where the annual festival is celebrated on a grand scale in the month of Chitrai; it is here was born Thyagaraja, the world famous saint-musician, who is deemed the most adorable to the vocalists of Karnataka music, for trailing a blaze of non-pareil of eminence on the pages of musicology, it is here Tirunavukkarasar, one of the Saiva Samayacharyas rose up from the holy temple tank, when plunged into a Himalayan pond on his way to Kailas; it is this holy temple visited by many great sages, like Agastya, and who on jumping into this temple Pushkarini reached Kailas; it is this sacred place enjoying the unique honour of being called the Cauvery kottam; and it is in this temple found Japesa Mantapam that witnessed the Bhagavadaaradhana activities throughout the year and finally it is the seat of Thyagarajaswamy, one of the many hallowed names of Lord Siva. This temple is fairly a big one with imposing towers and sturdy prakaras, vast courtyards, and several mini-shrines. The Moolavar is adored with Saivagama rituals with great zeal. In addition to the Sivalinga, the images in standing posture elate and join the hands of the visitors. The eyeful decoration of the archamurtis lift the souls and bends the heads. It contains in its vast compound the sacred Pushkarini of great fame. This was visited in many luminaries both Saivate and Vaishnavate bhaktas since time immemorial.

This is the birth place of Thyagabrahma, the supreme singer among the Trio of the Karnataka music, and his Samadhi lying on the bank of river is regarded as the EL Dorado of the musicians.

It is 15 km off Tanjore enjoying rail and road
facilities.
