MADURAI

"The corridors are occupied in the evenings by young men studying and r4emorising the Vedas. Here we get an insight into the soul of Hindu India; for this is truly the nursery of tradition, old Vedic lore being handed down from teacher to pupil by word of mouth and without the assistance of either pencil, paper or script, a colossal feat of memory (J. P. L. Shenoy, I.C.S.).

It is said that Guru Jnanasambandha, the founder of the Dhannapura Adheenam Mutt, found his Ishta Devata (God) inside this tank, following a dream. The story is that long ago at Villipputtur, in the Pandya kingdom, there lived a very pious couple,
Subramania Pillai and Meenakshi Ammal by name. They were farmers and had a son who was precocious and attained all
knowledge by his 16th year. The plarents went on -3 pilgrimage to Madurai to worship Chockalinga, with their son, and stayed there long to perform religious rites.
