Kumbakonam

A place in time

30 kms from Kumbakonam, Mantra Koodam is situated in the village of Veppathur.

Kumbakonam refers to the ‘kumbha’, or mythical pot that contained all seeds of life, displaced by the dissolution of the universe until it came to a rest at where this town stands. Enter into a world of otherworldly charm at Mantra Koodam, 6 km from this spiritual spot. A region dating back to the Sangam period, Kumbakonam rose to be a prominent city between the 7th and 9th centuries AD, when it was occupied by the mighty Cholas. During the British Rule, the town became a prominent centre of European education and Hindu culture, acquiring the name “Cambridge of South India”. The town is located right at the heart of the celebrated temple trail of South India, just an hour from Tanjavur. With over 5000 big and small temples spread across its landscape, it is rightly called the ‘temple town’. Spread over 15 acres, the property is flanked by the Veera Chozha and Cauvery rivers on either side. A destination that’s serenaded by the sound of gushing rivers, chirping birds and the chimes of a divine experience.
