TRIBHUVNAM - KAMPAHRESWARAR TIRUKKOVIL

This tirukkovil was built by the redoubtable Tribhuvana Chakravarti as a standing memorial to his digvijaya yatra to the North; and it is standing as a tower of victory heralding his military prowess. The exquisite sculpture adorning the 160-foot-high tower, and inside walls speak high of his devotional fervor. It is a very big temple and conforms to every detail of the temple construction, enunciated by Sekkilar. The legend behind the archamurti narrates that Siva assumed a strange Sarabha form - half human and half animal to subduing the divine fury of Lord Vishnu, who incarnated as Narasimha to killing that asuradhama Hiranyakasipu, boasting of this Ahambrahmasni creed. The sculptors' mastery strikes the eye from every frame of the temple. This temple has vast courtyards and innumerable minishrines for the adorable gods. It was visited by the Navalars who immortalised its glory in fine lyrics.

It is about 8 km off Kumbhakonam, the temple city of great renown and commands both rail and road facilities.
