SRI CHAKRAPANI TEMPLE
This small but sublime shrine built near the river Cauvery is dedicated
to Sri Chakrapani. He is, of course, Srimannarayan with a difference. The image of Chakrapani has eight
arms-and three eyes. Hence the attraction. The artistic carving of images and pillars with beautiful
adornments are worth-seeing. Another marvel! The image of Hanuman has six faces and it
is excellently done. So he beckons veneration and appreciation.
The lone Brahma temple that Kumbhakonam boasts of is also worth- seeing and it is well
maintained. As temples dedicated to Brahma are rare, except one at Pushkar in the North, this one is
largely attended and devoutly worshipped.
