SWAMIMALAI - SWAMINATHASWAMY TEMPLE

It is situated on the other side of the river Cauvery in the temple city called Kumbhakonam.  It is a hill temple dedicated to Lord Subramanya, the Field-Marshal of Devasena. As it is deemed one of the six abodes - Arupadi veedus of the Lord, it is visited by a steady influx of devotees throughout the year. According to legends, it is here, the Bala Muruga taught 'Pranava Mantra' and its efficacy to his father Lord Siva, the Omni compassionate God, among the TRIO. The temple is a superb architectural piece adorned with sculptural marvels. It lies atop and at the base are installed deities in mini-shrines and pavilions. The garbha griha is spacious and the icon in standing posture faces west. It is about six feet in height and superbly sculptured. The mukha mandap is big enough to hold huge Bhaktas. There are many mini-shrines holding Saivate gods and Navagrahas also. Around garbha griha, the statues of Nayanmars are installed. It is one of the famous Yatrasthalas for the Saivates and a miss not item in their itinerary list.

Town buses ply from Kumbhakonam, a pilgrim town of Tamilnadu and their frequency enables large numbers visit this from early morning to the late night.
