10th March, 2016.
After the darsan of  Sri Someswarar, Kumbakonam Friends  took me to their house for lunch and taken rest for about an hour. My next destination was to Thiruvisanallur to attend Prathosham. Mr Madhan  dropped me at Thiruvisanallur Shiva Temple all the way from Kumbakonam.

THIRUVISANALLUR
Iraivan : Sri Sivayoginathar
Iraivi    : Sri Soundaranayagi.
  • This is one of the Devaram Paadal petra Shiva Sthalam on the north side of river Cauvery ( For details of my earlier visit .CLICK HERE.).  The temple was built during Parantaka I, Rajaraja Chozha I and Rajendra Chozha II.  The front mandapam with sanctum was reconstructed during 1929 by Devakottai Nagarathars and Parakara mandapam  was also reconstructed using the same stones with inscriptions.  There is a solar clock  fixed on the south side of the temple compound wall which shows the accurate time. Between 06.00 hrs to 18.00 hrs. 
  • There are 4 Bairavars  for each yuga,  called sathurkala bairavars  in this temple. For worshiping Bairavars on astamai day people used to throng in this temple.
