FOREWORD

V Ramadoss, I.A.S.,

Commissioner, 

Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Admn. Department, Madras 600 034. 

'The Temples of Tamil Nadu' by Prof. K.K, Moorthy affords a delightful  reading.  It presents the spectacles of our glorious heritage in altogether a novel way that satisfies both both mind and soul.  He deviated from the traditional method each temple.  There are many other commendable features in it that demand attention. 

His style of writing is quite interesting - he lifts the curtain on the sanctity of temples in the Introductory part under the subheading UNIQUENESS, which amply awakens the interest in the devotees and whets the appetite, leading to taking a trip to the temples to see and offer prayers to the presiding deities.  He gives in the sub-headings-Antiquity and Historicity, the essential background of the temples, which are quite elaborated and convince the prospective visitor for a visit to those sacred shrines to partaking the divinity pervading therein.  He added a list of places of itinerary interest, and also the periodic festivals and prayers services.  At the end, the conveyance facilities to reach the shrines are given for the benefit of visitors to avail the darsan of the gods and also redeem the vows taken to them.
