Kumbakonam and Thanjavur Visit

Date : Oct 18 and 19,2009

Got my first chance to see Kumbakonam.thanks to SuryaNaryanar Temple at there. Initially started the temple visit by going to SriNageswar temple [God Ragu] along with my parents. Had to stand more than 2 hours
in the queue to see god.From there we went to near by Oppuliappan Temple[Lord Perumal]. The next day we went to SooryaNarayanar Temple[Lord Sun].It was simply awesome. This is my first visit to sun god temple.

It is located at the center of Kumbakonam where are all other temples are situated around it which is exactly same as that of Sun surrounded by its other planets.It is mind boggling how our ancestors are able to
predict all these planets in that period itself without any special intstuments.We winded up our tour to kumbakonam by vi sting a siva temple at Thiruvidai Maruthur .Again it is one of the biggest temple i have visited in my life time

Overall kumabakonam is really fascinating city which is really rich in nature and temples .Must visit this place in future to visit all other temples.

Started with Thanjai Palace .It is really painful to see the poor maintenance by the authorities.The watch tower is one of the main attraction here.Then some of the paintings and sculptures makes this place must visit one.At particular
place in palace there are innumerable varieties of butterfly are flying around.Then there is a hand loom sector to by some souvenir but the price are quite costly .

From there we went to the Big temple alias Bradheswar Temple .It is one of the proud architecture beauty of our country.Way back in 1989 i came to this place as a school excursion . I can still remember buying the famous thanjavur head rolling doll for Rs 1 at that time .The same doll costs around Rs 40 this time .With in
two decades price rise is really high .After vi sting this place ,one can't help themselves by thinking how it is possible to build a temple like this .It is really fantastic,amazing and incredulous architecture wonder.

It will never bore you ,even if you visit this place quite often,such is the beauty of this place.It is must visit for those who loves arts.
