Poundarigapuram is a small village located near the temple town of Kumbakonam. Nestling among the fertile fields, nurtured by the soothing waters of the river Kaveri, the village, although small in size, is great in name and fame. In fact, the village derives its name from Poundarika, a special type of yaga. Ayya Kumara Tata Desika, who was the Rajaguru to the ruler of Thanjavur, performed this special yaga in Vennar Bank near Thanjavur, about three hundred years ago. This village was set up and named Poundarikapura, in commemoration of this special yaga. This village are nearby all Navagraha temples.
