A BIRD'S-EYE VIEW OF SOME SHRINES SUPERB

Settling down here, Muruga made a Peedalinga, one of the five manifestations of Maheswar for regular worship and received his blessings.  There is another Siva temple called Virataneswarar, built by Aparajita Pallava of 9th century. Down below, there is another great thirtha called Saravanapoigai.  The annual float festival celebrated here in the month of Adi attracts lakhs of bhaktas.  It is then Lord Muruga comes down here to be adored.  Of the unique features of this shrine the celebration of the English New year deserves mention.  

The Sivaratri festival also draws huge crowds, on account of performing of 1008 Sangabhisekham.  Adi Kritiga, Kandashasti.  Masapujas are deservedly famous.  Sage Katchiappar's purana Kandappa Desikar's Dhanikachala puranam eulogise the splendor this kshetra in all its aspects.  The town below lying at a distance of 10 km of Arakonam Junction on the Southern Railway is well developed to catering to the needs of the lakhs of yatris coming from all parts of India.
