MADURAI - SUNDARESWARAR TIRUKKOVIL

This independent imposing Tirukkovil forms an integral part of Meenakshi Tirukkovil. The outer prakara is studded with scores of adorable divinities - each is a piece of art and enhances the sanctity of the place. Among them, the huge statues of Saraswathi, Durgai, Siddhar, Lakshmi, Kasi Viswanathar, Lingodbhava Murti, Nayanmars are deservedly famous and paying homage to each is considered a MUST and it brings merit. It also preserves the holy Kadamba tree in addition to having a big yagasala, Kanakasabha and Arukal Peedam, where the Thiruvilayadal Puranam was first recited. Offering obeisance to each Murthi, visitors enter Valliamballam where they greet first Lord Nataraja in the dancing pose to the right side. It is said that Lord Nataraja danced with the right leg at the request of King Rajasekahara Pandya in contravention to the usual practice of left leg. This representation stands an eloquent testimony of Lord's Omni benevolence. Bhaktavasankar is Bhaktavasankar ! Always ! And unbeaten too !! Now comes next the garbha griha of Lord Sundareswarar giving darsan in the form of big linga. This holy abode of His is consecreted and supported by 64 bhobtaganas, 32 lions and 8 elephants. This august phallus is called by several names such as Chokkanathar, Karpurachokkar, Sundareswarar, Siva, Maheswara, and is adored with great fervor. The visit remains an unforgettable event in life.
