Ramaswamy Temple in Kumbakonam (Kumbhakonam) represents a sacred place for the worship of Viṣṇu.—The Rāmasvāmī (Ramaswamy ) Temple in Kumbhakonam is renovated by Govinda Dikshita, a minister of the Nayaks of Tanjore. [According to the] sthala-purāṇa, the Rāmasvāmī Temple was the place where Viṣṇu, as Sāraṅgapāṇi, married Goddess Lakṣmī as Kōmal a Valli. Therefore, this place is also called Kalyāṇapuram. As Sūrya Deva worshipped in this sthala, this place is also called Bāskara Kṣetra. Scenes from the Ramayana are painted in glowing colours on the walls of the prahāras.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
