Sri Oppiliappan Temple Garden


Uppiliappan Temple dedicated to Hindu god Vishnu, is located near Thirunageswaram, a village in the outskirts of the Kumbakonam in the state of Tamil Nadu.

The presiding deity in this temple is Lord Uppiliappan Perumal with his consort Bhumi Devi and her father sage Markandeya. The temple is one of the 108 Divya Desams.

There is a garden around the third precinct of the temple and a much bigger garden about 0.5 km (0.31 mi) to the south of the temple, where Tulasi and flowers are grown. A hall in the garden is used for resting deities during the Vasantotsavam festival celebrated for six days in May–June every year.
