Where is this place
It is near to kumbakonam almost 10 kms from there on the way to Adhudurai.

Significance of this place
This place has a great significance for Mahalaya Srardhams.Those who cannot do srardhams at their locations can come here and perform the same.Vadiyars will be coming from different locations and you can select a vadiyar as per your convinience and perform srarthams .Mutt is not responsible for this event or they dont give you any assurance for the service provided by the vadhyars. These 15 days will be considered special and so many events like bhajans programs will be performed by famous bhagavathas.Kanchi periyava will be visiting this place during this duration Kanchi mutt under the guidence of krishna premi will be hosting the programs and annadanam.


Story of Bodendral and Govindapuram
Bodendral was an acharya at Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam long time back and he was the first to spread the Namasmaram and its significance across locations.Once Bodendral was doing dhyanam in the banks of river and kids playing there covered him with sand and he accepted that as his samadhi.Even today Bhaktas can hear Rama nama smaranam near his Samadhi.
