TIRUKKONAMALAI - SIVAN TIRUKKOVIL

The island Ceylon had adorned a covetable place, in the scriptures of our Bharat even as far back as in the Tretayuga, when it was ruled by Ravanabrahma; who abducted Mother SITA and became the arch villan of Dharma. During his reign, there were Sivaalayas in numbers numerous, and Saivaaradhana was conducted on a scale pompous to the envy of gods and humans, as a matter of fact. After the yugas that followed nothing remained in proof of its former glory. Buddhist impact swallowed almost all the yugas-old Siva mahima. Moreover, with the advent of Britishers, some of the surviving ancient shrines went beyond recognition, due to their ignorance of our adorable culture. A few of them withstanding the onslaughts of the vagaries of nature and whimsicality of aliens, are found here and there displaying the immortality Siva mahima. Among them, the Sivan Tirukkovil at Trincomalee deserves mention and adoration.
