Airavateswarar Temple is located at Darasuram to the west of Kumbakonam. Airavat is the holy White Elephant and the temple is dedicated to the Lord of Airavat. The temple is constructed in the 12th century by Rajaraja Chola II and is an exquisite symbol of the supremacy of Chola architectural style.

The temple structure is remarkable. There are many inscriptions and images in this temple. One structure shows Lord Shiva as the mendicant Kankala-murti. Other structures and inscriptions depict stories from Epics and Puranas.

The present temple is the one renovated by the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) in 2004.
