What you can expect

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Srinivasa Ramanujan House, Sarangapani Sannidhi Street, Kumbakonam City is Kumbakonam. Thanjavur is Another City, Thanjavur India

You will be picked up from your hotel in Trichy in the morning and driven to Sarangapani Sannidhi Street in the town of Kumbakonam. The drive from Trichy to Kumbakonam takes around 2 hours.

Situated on this street is the house of Srinivasa Ramanujan, one of the greatest mathematical geniuses born in the 19th century. A deeply religious Hindu, Ramanujan credited his substantial mathematical capacities to divinity, and stated that the mathematical knowledge he displayed was revealed to him by his family goddess. “An equation for me has no meaning,” he once said, “unless it expresses a thought of God.” The family home has now been converted into a museum. Letters, certificates and descriptions of mathematical results are on display in the central room.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Sarangapani Temple, Nh-45c Near Uchipilliar Kovil, Kumbakonam India

After a tour of the house visit the nearby Sarangapani Temple. Built by the Nayak Kings in the 15th century, this is a majestic twelve storied temple that is 147 feet high. It was the tallest temple of South Asia before the Sri Rangam Temple was built in Trichy. The temple is dedicated to the Hindu God Vishnu. Also, visit the sacred Mahamaham water pond. It is believed that a dip in its water cleanses all your sins.
