Temples And Legends Of Tamilnadu Page1

An attempt has been made in this book to reproduce the legends connected with the temples of Tamilnad, with an idea to bring home to all, the mythological, spiritual and philosophical aspects of the anecdotes from early times to date.

The Sthalapuranams, legendary history of hte sacred places, are available for the sale in almost all hte temples of the south, and they give the particular significance of each temple with the chronology of the distinguished divine visitors whoperformed miracles and conducted their penances in those temples.

The presence of such devotees doubly sanctified the shrines concerned, and added to their sacred glory. Unless one is fully conversant with the Tamil language and its Puranic legends, it is difficult for him to follow the exact history and signifi- cance of a particular temple. Therefore, it was desirable to have a book in english to help the general public who do not know Tamil.
