TIRUVANNAMALAI - THE SEAT OF TEJOLINGA

Uniqueness of Tejomurti Kshetra

Tiruvannamalai Tirukkoil, considered as one of the Panchabhutasthalas is a reputed Saiva Kshetra of perennial significance of the highest order.  Its association with Trimurthis - Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswar, and subsequent habitation by saint-poets, sage-seers, rajadhirajas, British bhaktas, and countless beneficiaries transformed this seemingly a rugged mount into a Saiva yatrasthala of global importance.  Its attraction for religiounists and tourists of all nationals, lies in its legends that take back to ancient times, to be precise, the beginning of Kritayuga.  Right from the Vedas down to sthalamahatyams, every genre of literature abounds in evidence of great profusion of Maheswar's sports played on this sacred place, and his remaining willingly in the form of hill for lifting mankind, buried in the watery grave of Samsara.  The holy shrine adorned rampart walls, magnificent huge mandapas, beautifed by matchless sculptural marvels and architectural gradeur, containing numerous shrines for every adorable deity of Hindu Pantheon, and covering a very vast area of 25 acres, speaks volumes of the glory of temple and Omnibenevolence of Bhaktavasankar, the presiding deity.
