Kumbakonam Tourism & Travel Guide

Kumbakonam is a stunning temple town in the state of Tamil Nadu. Owing to the hundreds of temples in the city and around it, the city is fondly known as the 'land of temples'. Perhaps one of the oldest temples here is the Adi Kumbeshwara Temple, which is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Covered with thousands of carvings and idols, this temple is awe-inspiring and attracts visitors from across the world. Another must-visit temple is the Nageswaran Temple, a unique temple that is constructed like a chariot. A fine example of Chola architecture, this temple's presiding deity is Lord Shiva. Another revered temple here would be the Kashi Vishwanath temple, which is associated with the Mahamaham Festival. This one-day festivity signifies the meeting of all holy rivers in the country and a purificatory bath at the Mahamaham tank on this day is considered equal to the combined dips in all the holy rivers of India. Foodies are in for a surprise as well since Kumbakonam has a wide array of delicious South Indian food and is also famous for its filter coffee. Located only a couple of hours away from Chennai, you can either choose to visit the town for a day or spend a couple of nights here. Kumbakonam is a famous tourist town and thus has accommodation options for every budget size.
