Innambar Temple

 

Innambar lies 5-km to the north west of Kumbakonam. The temple covers an area of about 2 acres. Agasthyar was thought Tamizh (grammar of Tamil) at this temple and he brought it to the world. A very big Garbhagraham, which could allow an elephant to perform puja can be seen here. Airavatam, the mythological elephant is said to have worshipped Lord Shiva here.

 

A five-tiered RajaGopuram adorns the entrance to this temple with 2 Prakarams, while a Gajaprishta Vimanam with 5 Kalasams crowns the sanctum. Stucco images on the Vimanam illustrate the Stala Puranam.The ShivaLinga and the entrances to the sanctum are huge and the Nataraja image is of great workmanship. Nityakalyani Amman is situated to the right of Lord Shiva, while there is a separate shrine for Sugandha Kundalambal in the outer Prakaram. Nityakalyani Amman’s shrine located close to Lord Shiva’s shrine is said to represent the Kalyanakkolam of Lord Shiva.

 

Inscriptions from the Chola and Vijayanagar periods are found in this temple. Four worship services are offered each day here. Some volunteers who belonged to “Thaayumaanavar Narpani Manram”, Trichy, renovated the temple
