This temple is special for Lord Muruga and it's amongst so many Eswaran and Navagraha temples around Kumbakonam. Next to this Muruga Temple is Someswharar Temple and visitors to Swaminatha Swami Temple (Murugan) may not miss the neighbouring Someshwarar (Easwaran or Lord Shiva) Temple.

When we set foot at this temple, I thought this was going to be an ordinary experience like many others at temples in Tamil Nadu - but this was specially different. Go in and experience the majesty of Lord Murugan yourself.

I dont think so. Kumbakonam is hardly 8 kms and has all categories of accomodation.
