    A must-visit place
    Jambukeswarar/Akhilandeswari temple at Thiruvanaikaval in Trichy is a huge and historical temple. We just went before 12 noon as the darshan for devotees is generally closed between 10.30 am and 12 noon due to some Pooja rituals in the temple. At 12 noon exactly everyday, a priest in guise like a lady ( representing Akhilandeswari Devi) does Pooja to a holy cow in front of Eashwar’ sannithi. We were fortunate to witness that during our visit. They have ₹25,₹10 and free darshan queues for darshan of Eashwar and Devi. Eashwar in the form of Shiva Lingam is at a lower level in water said to be that if river Cauvery. As it is a cramped place which can accommodate maximum around 10 people, a man is stationed to regulate the visitors who jostle to move ahead where all 3 queues merge. Very serene and happy darshan of Eashwar and Devi! Ganesh J Mumbai

    Holy Place worth visit.
    This temple is located in the town of srirangam which is different from trichy it is approximately 13 kms from Trichurapally Jn Rly Stn. This temple has a very vast premises and each and every corner of this premises is worth visiting. The architecture and carving on the pillars ceilings are awesome. Please check the timings before visiting the temple as it is not open for the deity to be seen for all the times but you can visit the temple from outside at anytime during the day. Shoe stand available outside the Gopuram. In case you found my review helpful, kindly click on the helpful button and follow me for more reviews of attractions all over India

    Serene Shiva Temple
    The temple was very close to my hotel. We vot up early and walked up to temple by 0600. In comparison to other shiva temple hardly there were any visitors.There is no ticket system.we could go to inner sanctorum and offer puja.Continuous chant of Oum Namoh Shivay will fill your heart. There is a garden outside. Fragrance of flower will amuse one's heart.

    Beautiful shiva temple. One needs to take fews steps down, and enter a low height inner sanctum for darshan of the linga. Temple complex is huge. Photos not allowed. Phones have to be deposited at the counter near the entrance. Temple reminded me of Sri Poonambala Vaneswarar Kovil temple in Colombo.

Shiva in the form of water lingam. Also called Jalakandeswarar the sanctum sanctorum is always wet. Peaceful temple. Gives a serene feeling. The representation of Parvathi is Sri Akhilandeshwari. A graceful idol seems to bless you directly.

It is one of the very oldest shiva temple very close to Trichy. Temple architecture is so beautiful and tempting you to click the nice pillars with nicely carved sculpture. Siva moolasthan is always in water and Akilandeswari amman sannaadhi is so divine. You must and have the blessing of siva and parvathy.

This is a great temple to visit. They have cleaned up the temple and it is a nice place to walk around inside the temple. The architecture within the temple is beautiful and you can enjoy it leisurely on non religious days.

This is a beautiful temple with a powerful vibrations. The complex is large. You need about 1.5 hours to really enjoy the temple. Either go there early in the morning or late in the evening to avoid crowds

This temple has a story with a deep meaning to it. It's one of the Panch Bootha sthalams representing Jal tattva or water. Therefore the lingam here is called Apu lingam.
Please visit Sri Akhilandeshwari temple first, then head to Sri Jambukeshwarar. The Garbha Gudi is quite small and only a few can enter at a time. Therefore, lines will be a bit slow moving. But completely worth the time and effort.

While not immediately striking, this quaint temple is surprisingly charming. Its design is intricate and there are also local ceremonies involving elephants and cows. I might actually enjoy this Shiva temple even more than the large Swamy temple nearby to it!

Grand temple, near Srirangam. Was very crowded on Sunday. Preferably choose a time that's less crowded like early morning, etc. But finally, we had good Darshan of the Lord and Amman

The
Jambukeswarar Temple is about 1800 years old, situatedin Trichy, Tamilnadu. It's a wonderful temple, with a huge complex, spacious and beautiful. The main temple has about 800 pillars. Words cannot describe its beauty. Best part of the temple is that it's less crowded and one can peacefully have darshan and walk around. It would be nice to have a guide to visit the whole temple. As per tradition one must visit Goddess Akhilandeshwari first, then visit God Jambukeswarar.
