KSHITIMURTI THE SEAT OF PRITHVILINGA - KANCHEEPURAM

Uniqueness of Kshitimurthi kshetra

Kanchi enjoys the rare privilege of treasuring up a unique temple culture that none but Kanchi alone could claim equality with it in matters of spiritual height it scaled, commercial superiority it established and political might it displayed, since Vedic times.  Its unprecedented renown springing form more than one segment of national life carved out for itself a meritorious niche in the cultural history of our Akhanda Bharata Khanda.  Its religious tolerance and political stability were applauded by the incarnations of the august divinities.  And the inscriptional evidence available speaks volumes of its former glory.  So it is a temple city with a speciality of its own.

It is to this self-same place, Parvathi was directed to descend for doing penance to purge of the sin of insulting her own Pati; it is this city deemed by Lord Siva, one of his two eyes, the other being Kasi; it is this holy kshetra that enshrines the Prithvilinga regarded as the Prithvimurti of the Sivashtamurtis and one of the Panchabhutasthla lingas also; it is this Punya Kshetra that was on par with Kasi -- the much hallowed thirtha Kshetra, and also adorns the list of five indispensable pilgrim centres;  it is this Punya Kshetra that was chosen by Sankara Bhagavatpada for establishing one of the Kamakoti Peethas for spreading Vedic Dharma.
