CHIDAMBARAM

IN CHIDAMBARAM

ANNAMALAI UNIVERSITY: In addition to the famous shrine, there are several worth seeing places in and around the city. Among them Annamalai University deserves mention. It is one of the best Residential Universities in the country, renowned as a great centre of Tamil learning and Carnatic music. It was founded by a great philanthropist Raja Sir Annamalai Chettiar and boasts of covering several acres of land, packed to its bounds several excellent buildings, spacious class- rooms, best hostels, lush green lawns, clean roads etc. It lies on the eastern outskirts of the town and is adding cultural luminosity to the spiritual glory of the town. A visit pays.

KALI TEMPLE :It is located at the Northern end of the town. It is popular as Thillai Kali Amman Koil and the deity is quite awe- some. A look at the image recalls to the memory the superiority of the Universal dancer - Nataraja along with her defeat in the battle of guts. When vanquished, Mother Kali unable to digest the humiliation left her abode - the temple and came to this place. Adorers started turning up in large numbers, may be to console her or exact choicy boons from her disconcerting mood, when she started granting indiscriminately - over and above the deserving. Kopperunjingam - a famous Chola king built a beautiful edifice in the 13th century. It is drawing Sakteyas more. The special Prayer Services are akin to the temples dedicated to the Saktipitas. A miss not of shrine of great sublimity.
