‘I park myself at Mayiladuthurai and cover these temples.
I find this arrangement convenient,though it is ideal to be at Kumbakonam.
But Myladuthurai is better in terms of better accessibility and better accommodation budget wise).Kumbakonam is 35 minutes away-Rs 11 by bus ,about half a Dollar to and Fro.
You have buses every 10 -15 minutes from Mayiladuthurai and it takes about 25 minutes one way.
The Temple is closed between 1 and 4 pm.
This Temple is worshipped for relief from Disease,s of the Skin especially.
And for relief from Angaraka Dosha,-Mars’s Malevolence.
