KANCHI KUMARAKOTTAM - SOMASKANDAR TEMPLE

To mark this unique event, gods caused a beautiful temple built to perpetuate the truth that commission gets remission only on retribution. They named the place as Kumarakottam. Here the Moolavar gives darsan flanked by Mother Parvathi on one side and Lord Siva on the other as seen usually in Mount Kailas.

Many renowned Nayanmars visited this kshetra and offered worship with their immortal sweet verses as flowers. One poet by name Kanda Peruman received Murugan's compassion in a unique way. He was initiated into composing poems only here which is akin to Kalidasa's episode. His compositions were sung and popularised by Sachchiappa Sivacharya. Many. awesome sports of Murugan were demonstrated from this holy auditorium. The temple built in the Dravidian style of architecture is quite majestic with broad prakara and a mahadwara surmounting an imposing tall tower. The courtyard's are wide, and numerous mini-shrines are installed with many adorable deities. Daily worship is offered with great devotional fervour and the annual festivals are celebrated on a grand scale befitting the status of Kanchipuram, the erstwhile capital of several dynasties. There are many stalls in the prakara catering to the needs of devotees.

It lies in big Kanchi near Kanchi Kamakoti peetham, accessible by auto, cycle rickshaw either from bus stand or railway station.
