“My visit to this temple on the evening of 9th July 2018”

Kambahareswarar Temple
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Lovely temple with beautiful Chola period architecture and style of building. Lord is in the form of a Shiva Lingam and is called Sri Kambahareshwarar & he is a swayambumurthy. The speciality of this temple is a separate sannidhi for Lord Sarabeshwara who has the collective powers of Lord Vishnu, Lord Shiva, Mother Pratyangara Devi & Mother Durga. Lord Sarabeshwara came so as to prevent the blood drops of Hiranyakasipu from falling to the earth. If the blood droplets had fallen on earth, many many more asuras would have been born. Thanks to Lord Sarabeshwara this did not happen.

Temple for Lord Sarabeswara. Rahu Kala Special Pooja during Sunday 4.30 to 6.00.
You can have peaceful dharsan during week days. Big Temple with Hudge Sculpture architecture. Since outer prakaram is not roof covered recommend to visit during early morning or evening hours to avoid walking in direct heat. Old people may find it difficult to walk around this big temple.
