Chakrapani Temple is a revered Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu (locally known as Chakrapani) located in the Kumbakonam city of Tamil Nadu. One of the most prominent temples in the area, the shrine has a magnificent idol of Lord Vishnu with his chakra (discus) to bring down the pride of Surya- the Sun God, who subsequently became his devotee. Boasting of striking architectural finesse, the temple also houses a statue of King Sarfoji II who is also worshipping Lord Vishnu.
The temple has peculiar similarities to Shiva temples. Just like Lord Shiva, the chief idol of Lord Vishnu has a third eye. Another similarity is the performance of Vilva Aarti which is a generally performed in Shiva temples. Wheat Porridge is the special offering given to the deity and the idol is worshipped with Bilwa leaves. The temple is abuzz with tourists and devotees alike all through the year.
