INTRODUCTION

Having given the priority to the basic facts of Saivism, I then decided to increase the original number of temples from 100 to 300. Surprised!  Need not be.  For there are thousands and thousands of temples for Siva scattered across the country from Somnath in Gujarat to Bali in Indonesia, breadth wise and Amarnath to Trincomallee lengthwise; as Saivism is the oldest religion and was followed and propagated some millenniums of years before to birth of Christ. Some books procured divulged a wide range of fantastic and exotic; fascinating and awesome legends of the places, which He chose to swell in from the Vedic age in some cases, after accomplishing the purpose of his descent, either at the request of the locals or out of his own choice. And each place of His dwelling is endowed with an aura that not only succeeded in heightening His divine image, but is mesmerising and turning the visitors godward instantly and everlastingly, since the vestiges of the Sivalila found in several forms, like inscriptions and monuments bearing unmistakable imprints of their erstwhile existence and glory would convince even the hard core agnostics.
