    Temple City

    The name "Kumbakonam" the City situated near thanjavour,Tamilnadu, south India, at roughly translated in English as the word of "Jug's Corner" is believed to be an allusion to the mythical pot (Kumbha) of the Hindu god Brahma that contained the seed of all living beings on earth. The kumbha is believed to have been displaced by a pralaya (dissolution of the universe) and ultimately came to rest at the spot where the town of Kumbakonam now stands.

    The drops of nectar are believed to have fallen onto five shrines around Kumbakonam, namely

    • Mahlingeswarar temple at Tiruvidaimarudur,
    • Airavatesvara Temple Tirudharasuram (Dharasuram)
    • Naganathar Temple at Tirunageswaram,
    • Tiruvorgam
    • Tirupadalavanam

    Part of Navagraha (Vaishnava and Saiva) temples situated in this city this also be feature.

    The alvars, also spelt as alwars or azhwars ‘those immersed in god’ were Tamil poet-saints of South India who espoused bhakti (devotion) to the Hindu Supreme god Vishnu or his avatar Krishna in their songs of longing, ecstasy and service. They are venerated especially in Vaishnavism, which regards Vishnu or Krishna as the Supreme Being
