INTRODUCTION

The aim of this book enshrining the legends and traditions of sixteen world famous temples is to shed adequate Night on the glory of temples of Tamil Nadu, and I feel, by a mere single glance, say reverent perusal, it ignites the slumbering theistic impulses and directs the reader to them for first hand information for better rapport that ensures quick and sure progress. As done to the volumes published already, I strictly followed the format-Uniqueness, antiquity, historicity, traditions, images, festivals etc. again; for, they are found helpful, and appreciated by the devout theists also. Of the sixteen included. 

The MOTHER of Melmaruvathur comes first, since it is lying close to Andhra Pradesh border, and naturally one thinks of entering into it on completing the visiting of the North India, along with Orissan and Andhra Temples. Moreover, it is a standing specimen of the new type of temples, bearing the marks of modernism in customs, traditions etc., although sticking on to the hoary fundamentals.
