The Mahamaham Tank located in the scared town of Kumbakonam is regarded as extremely holy. Lacs of people take bath in its sacred waters during the auspicious occasion of Mahamaham with the firm faith that this can wash away their sins and lead them to salvation.

Uniqueness of Mahamaham Tank

The sacred Mahamaham tank is unique in many respects and one of them is this. It is believed that it is enough if just one member of an entire family takes holy bath in this tank and that alone can remove the sins committed by all the family members, not only of this generation but also of the earlier generations. Further, the next generation family members too will be guided towards a life devoid of sins. Here, the family covers a wide range of relatives like one’s own family and also the families of paternal relatives, of maternal relatives, of those related by marriage, of brothers and sisters, of step-mothers, of father’s sisters, and also the families of mother’s brothers and in-laws; and all these seven families will be rid of sins and will be bestowed with punya, the virtues. However, this is subject to one condition — the family members should not allow sinful thoughts to arise in their minds after the sacred dip.
