KALAHASTI

The river Suvarnamukhi takes a northerly course at Kalahasti and the river washes almost the west wall of the temple. The main entrance of the temple is on the south, though tho God faces the west.

The Puranic version for associating Kalahasti with Mount Meru is, that, as a result of an alteration between Adisesha, the serpent God, and Vayu, the God of the Air, three ' blocks separated themselves from Mount Meru and fell at different places. One of these is Kalahasti. The other is at Tiruchirapalli of the south and the third is at Trincomalee in Ceylon. Since Kalahasti is thus a chip, which fell off Mount Meru, it is said to form part of it, though geographically Mount Meru and Kalahasti are very far off.
