For a small city, Kumbakonam has an amazing number of temples, most of them huge. On almost every road, you come across at least a couple of them. It is not surprising, for there are a number of temples connected to the legend of the pot of nectar, and there are others which are related to the visions and experiences of the large number of holy men who came to this holy city in their quest for knowledge or liberation.
There are six major Shiva temples in Kumbakonam, all related to the pot of nectar shattered by Shiva as Kiratamurthy. These are:
1. Adi Kumbeswarar – the pot of nectar itself,
2. Nageswarar – the bilva leaf in the pot fell here,
3. Someswarar – the thread tying the pot (also known as Kudanthai Kaaronam)
4. Abimugeswarar – the coconut in the pot,
5. Gautameswarar – the sacred thread (also called Yagnopaveeteswarar), and
6. Bana Pureeswarar – it was here that Shiva broke the pot with an arrow (Baanam)
