“Marvellous architecture”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

This temple is famous for it hosts Lord Sarabeshwara in a separate shrine, an archetype who can fiercely ward of negative energy. This temple's architecture will remind Thanjavur big temple a lot. Architecture is just awesome! Thirubuvanam is also famous for its silk sarees...

“THIRUBUVANAM TEMPLE”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

This temple is situated about 8km from Kumakonam to mayiladuthurai.
The main deity is Kambahareswarar. There is a separate sannidhi for SARABHESWARAR which is very famous here.As per Purana God NARASHIMHA after killing Hiranya has become very ferocious & uncontrollable even by Devas.
Sivaperuman has taken the form of SARABHA to subdue Narasimha.
The devotees firmly believe that for removing obstacles in marriage, for begetting a child, for recovery from debts, for winning legal battles, for neutralizing the effects of black magic etc., worshipping Lord Sarabeswara is the best remedy.

This form comprises the forms of an animal, human and bird – the face of a yali, human body and the form of a bird. The form of Narasimha consisted of a human body and the face of a lion. Kaali and Durga became the wings of Saraba. Lord Sarabeswara lifted Narasimha to space, drew out the asura blood (Hiranyan’s) and pacified him. He took him to space because even if a drop of asura blood fell on the earth, it would lead to the emergence of many asuras. So, Lord Sarabeswara took Narasimha above the gravitational sphere to prevent his blood falling on earth. The form of Sarabeswara comprises four Gods – Shiva, Kaali, Durga and Vishnu.
The sculpture & architecture is interesting to see.
