India | Tamil Nadu


Kodumbalur, also known as Moovarkoil, is situated in Pudukkottai District of Tamil Nadu. It is about 36 km from Pudukkottai and 42 km from Tiruchirapalli. The place was the erstwhile seat of Irukkuvelirs, who were related to Chola.

Of the three 10th century shrines built by Boodhi Vikramakesari only two exist now. The exquisite sculptures of Kalarimurthi, Gajasamharamurthi Ardhanari and Gangadaramurthi are interesting.

The Muchukundeswarar Temple situated nearby is worth visiting.
