Ramaswamy Temple

Timings: 6 am to 12 pm, 4 pm to 9 pm

This 16thcentury temple dedicated to Lord Rama was built by Nayakkar kings. This thanjavur temple features a characteristic Nayak style of temple architecture. A three-tiered gopuram is enclosed within walls. Carved out of a single stone, each of the 64 exquisite pillars depict various scenes from the epic Ramayana. Rama is seated with his consort Sita in the sanctum sanctorum. Standing alongside are his brothers – Lakshmana, Bharatha, and Chatruguna, while Hanuman is worshipping. The outer precincts are striking for the Chitra Ramayana – a pictorial depiction of Ramayana. This prominent temple of Kumbakonam also celebrates the prestigious Mahamaham festival.
