Welcome to Chaithanyapuram

‘Chaithanyapuram’ also known as ‘Sethanipuram' is a small village on the banks of river Cauvery, situated near Sri Vanchiyam, Nachiyar Koil and Kudavasal / Nannilam. The village is located at a distance of about 21 kms from Kumbakonam. As per Krishna Premi Anna’s citation in his book "South India and Brahmin's History", Sethanipuram is one among the four villages to which the Shukla Yajur Vedis migrated from the North during the Chola period.

There are also printed reports from Kalyana Kalpatharu (edition 1945) , published from Varanasi, stating that Sri Venkatrama Iyer, belonging to this village, was the first to spread Panduranga Nama in South India.

Prayer of the Day


The medicine of Grace to wipe out our sorrows is to develop unshakable faith in God and tolerance is the medicine of Grace to wipe out our sorrows. Bhakti alone can give us the capacity to put up with sorrows. Temples are the agencies for developing that Bhakti.

Hence, the need for temples at all places. All offerings to the deities in the temples are tokens of our gratitude to God.
