The town of Darasuram is located near Kumbakonam, the temple town of southern India. It lies only five kilometers away from Kumbakonam and has its equal share of temples and other places of religious merit. For this reason, the town of Darasuram is very famous among pilgrims. If you are religiously inclined or spiritually active, you’d want to visit Darasuram as the temples here are very popular.

One must see destination in the town of Darasuram is the Airavateshwara temple, which is located in the middle of the town. This is an age old temple that is an architectural marvel. It was built by the kind Rajaraja the IInd, way back during the time of the Chola Empire. Similar to the other Chola monuments in the state, the temple of Airavateshwara has splendid architecture and is beautifully constructed. The main deity in this temple is Lord Shiva, who is known as Airavateshwara in this region. This is because legend has it that the mystical white elephant Airavat paid its respects to the deity at this place.

There are many sculptures of historical interest that line the walls of this temple, and these sculptures depict the Chola reign and other principal Hindu deities.
