Someshwara temple in Kumbakonam is a Shiva temple that is visited much less compared to the other temples. The temple had no crowd on a Saturday evening compared to packed crowds in nearby temples. Good ancient temple with Shiva linga.

This temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. He is also known as the poor Someswaran here. This temple is generally sparsely visited, but during the year of Maha Maham, it becomes crowded and special Pujas are performed.
