Temple History : The temple is not only beautiful in structure it is also a great art gallery. This temple has been constructed by King ‘Regunatha Nayakkar’ who ruled Tanjore at CE1620. The temple’s Urchava moorthies (Urchava moorthy means smaller size of idols which are carried around the temple as procession during festivals) are very old and it was found under the earth near to Darasuram town. It’s front hall was constructed with 62 pillars that has beautiful carvings of various gods. Different avatars of Lord Vishnu also carved in this hall. This hall is called as ‘Maha Mandapam’. One of the great Indian Epic Ramayan has been painted in the inner prahara of this temple. More than 200 such paintings are present in the inner prahara makes the temple more beautiful and it demonstrates the depth of art and architecture.

The Temple’s Karpagraha is in the old fashion. Sri Ram and Seeta Devi both are in the sitting position in the karpagraha and his three brothers Laxman, Bharadan, and Sathrukkan are standing nearby them. Lord Hanuman is placed here with ‘Veena’ in his hand (Veena is a indian musical instrument). Hanuman with veena is one of the very rare idols which you find in many temples.
