  • There are nine different temples are there in Tamil nadu for Nava Grahas each. This this temple is dedicated to Surya bhagavan. People will perform Pooja to suryanar Bhagwan in order to get out of evil effects of Surya in their horoscope. The nearest railway station is aduthurai and from there we can reach the temple by an auto. The temple is near three and half kilometre from the railway station. The nearest railway junction is Mayiladuthurai. Chanting Aditya Hrudayam in this temple will give positive energy.

  • This is the temple of Sun also known suryanar located around Kumbakonam, according to ancient history and astrology ppl visit in large crowds when person is suffering fro long time illness or not doing good in business or job. According to astrolog is the power of sun is weak or sun is in descendent the person suffers with health issues of job related issues. This is the main reason these temple attract huge croud from across world to please the God of SUN, and its only in and around Kumbakonam south india we find all temples of 9 planets where we can find pooja and mantra recited in a proper ways. Basically these temple's are still existing and have fame only because in these temples still priest exist who are following their ansistral job knowing the right mantras and right pronounciations. Hence while visiting these temple's have ample time to get things done in a proper ways and be careful with brokers, don't try to get things done fast it will not make any sense in it.

  • Parking gets congested in the narrow lanes during festive seasons. It is better to park away from the temple and walk the distance
