Sarangapani Temple reviews
Sarangapani temple is one of the divine temple for Lord Vishnu who is with the name of Lord Sarangapani. Situated in the heart of the city hence very little place for car parking. Auto rickshaw can..... more »
Wonderful large temple with a beautiful Sarangapni sanctum. Must visit temple when in Kumbakonam. Atleast 45 minutes to walk all around on a non crowded week day more »
Placed in a remote place, it's better to travel in your own vehicle. No hotels or eateries available. Better to carry your own food. The temple is cleanly maintained. Every board is written only in regional language and doesnt serve people who isn't from that region. Kumbhakonam is very close and gives you ample options of pilgrimage.
Huge temple with beautiful sculpture. Very well maintained. Went on a Sunday and there was no rush. Peaceful darshan
