Read now the unique phenomenon going on for yugas now. It is at Tirukkaikundram, a sacred pilgrim centre of Tamil Nadu.

Lying between Kancheepuram and Mahabalipuram, this Saivakshetra has a fantastic legend that is drawing the devotees and tourists in large numbers through out the year. The two temples dedicated to Lord Siva, one up above the hill and another down below take us back to the past and narrate fascinating tales.

Once, according to priests, two sages did penance for centuries, propitiating Lord Siva-Descending, the Omni benevolent Lord asked them to name their desires. They jointly` expressed to worship him at noon everyday for ever. It was granted. After their death, they took the form of eagles and are visiting everyday at noon. The priest then offers prasad to them. Tasting a little, they depart in opposite directions, one to Kasi and another to Rameswaram, since they belong to those holy places. Whatever may be the veracity, or the authenticity of his narration, their coming regularly since ages is certain. Anxious public are assembling here at that moment to avail that sight and partake prasad distributed by the priest after offering it to those immortal Bhaktas. In the form of eagles at it. It is a pilgrim centre of great importance.

It is perhaps for this, Sri Maha Vishnu took Garuda as his vehicle; Sri Rama-, Anjenaya; Paramasiva, Nandi; Brahma, swan etc. for eagles and four legged animals are far better than humans. Pay obeisance to them and emulate their commendable standards.

Location : The temple lies in Tirukkaikunram. accessible by four wheelers from Chennai; Tamil Nadu.
