Kumbakonam is a temple city and the main attraction is history and culture or religious tourism. There are plenty of temples to see and each one has a story behind it and is definitely worth a visit.
Another amazing city in India, must be patient and accept the city for what it is. The temples had so much history and amazing architecture.
Needs proper maintenance and the local people need to take more social responsibility in preserving the amazing structures.
We were sightseeing in Thanjavur and stayed at this hotel because we thought it was a nearby hotel at distance of about 40 km.
But due to the terrible roads leading to Kumbakonam, the trip from Kumbakonam to Thanjavur took more than an hour. We do not really know what there is to see in Kumbakonam.
Take your time and visit as many historical sites and temples as you can. What you learn will amaze you.
