Balugantha Shiva Temple – Thiruvoippadi (near Kumbakonam)

  • Place where Chandikeswarar (Chandesvara Nayanar) made the Siva lingam out of Manniyar river sand and worshipped the Lord.
  • Chandikeswarar got the Darshan of Lord Shiva and Parvathi in this temple.
  • Paadal Petra Sthalam, Sung by Appar – 1 pathigam
·       This temple is located on the Kumbakonam – Anakarai route. Travelling from Kumbakonam (18 kms), after reaching the place Cholapuram, there will be a small road on the left side which leads to this temple at about 2 km from the road.

Lord Siva: Baluganthanatha Swamy
Ambal (Goddess): Sakhideviammai

This temple is open from 8.00 a.m. to 9.00 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Two more paadal petra sthalams – Thirupananthal and Thiruvoipadi are located close to this temple (within 2 or 3 kms range).

Please refer to my previous Post for Chandikeswarar history.
