KUMBHAKONAM

AROUND KUMBHAKONAM

SWAMIMALAI : It is situated on the other side of the river Cauvery. It is a hill temple dedicated to Lord Subrahmanya, 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 enshrines atop and at the base many adorable deities in mini- shrines and pavilions.  The statue of the Mulavar is quite attractive and soul-lifting. It is one of the Yatrashalas for the Saivates and a miss not item in their itinerary list.  Town buses ply from Kumbhakonam and their frequency enables large members visit this from early morning to the late night.

This beautiful temple is enshrining many other adorable deities like Yennappan.
