Prasad I had occasion to visit an ancient temple at a place caled Dadikombu near Dindigul, Tamil Nadu. The main deity is Veeraraghava Perumal and there is another deity which attracts several devotees - Bhairavan. Saturdays and, if I remember right, new moon days are crowded with hundreds of people crowding there. As it is away from the town, on Saturdays, special counters that offer some packed luch are opened - on other days I guess there are only a few visitors and they may not need the stall. There are several deities in the prakaram - Rama, Hanuman etc. The innumerable sculptures are very nice and must rank among the best. A fairly large temple compound also houses separate shrines in the distant corner - I dont recall the deity there now - with a pillar in front, damaged partially if I am right. I understand the temple was not patronised for several years, perhaps decades, till about 10 or 20 years ago. The damage must have occurred during the period of neglect. The temple is very popular now with people coming from a radius of more than 100 km.
Dindigul is well connected by road and rail. It is close to Madurai which is on the all-India tourist map. It is an overnight journey from Madras / Bangalore by rail or 7 - 8 hours by road.
