TIRUVARUR - SRI TYAGARAJAR TIRUKKOVIL

This holy temple town is doubly famous for both visible and invisible worshipful personages belonging to the celestial and terrestrial world. Here was born the Musical trinity - Tyagaraja, Samasastry, Muthuswamy Dikshithar, who lulled by their melodious tones both class and mass of devotees and turned them god-wards by devotional themes they incorporated in their songs. Several saint sages like Appar, Sundarar, Sambandar, Arunagirinathar etc., poured out their souls in verse bringing out the glory of the Lord. It is a very big tirukkovil containing numerous niches for adorable deities. And a separate big shrine for the image of Mother Parvathi, in the local name of Kamalambigai is installed in yogagana pose. The Vinayaka of this shrine is so powerful that he inspired Dikshitar to composing the most popular song - `Vatapiganapathim ...". A separate indepedent little pavilion outside the compound treasures up the stone image of Manunithi Cholan, who kept the scales even by passing death sentence to his son, for killing a calf by careless driving of his chariot. Among the uniques of this place, the Azhi Ther - the tirukkovil car deserves mention first, and it is the biggest of its kind in India, and requires eighty thousand men to draw through the streets during the annual festival. A sight indeed ! A boon desirable !! A pride pardonable !!!

This temple town lies at 40 km east off Tanjore and commands all modes of conveyances.
