KANCHIPURAM

THIRUKKAIKUNDRAM : 

Lying between Kancheepuram and Mahabalipuram. this Saivakshetra has a fantastic legend that is drawing the devotees and tourists in large numbers through out the year.  The two temples dedicated to Lord Siva one up above the hill and another down below it both take back us to the past and narrate fascinating tales. Once. according to priests, two sages did penance, for centuries propitiating Lord Siva. Descending the Omni-benevolent Lord asked them to name their desires.  They jointly expressed to worship him at noon everyday for ever.  It was granted.  After their death, they took the form of eagles and are visiting everyday at noon. The priest then offers prasad to them. Tasting a little they depart in opposite directions-one to Kasi and another to Rameswaram since belong to those holy places. 

Whatever may be veracity or the authenticity of his narration, their coming regularly since ages is certain.  Anxious public are assembling here et that moment to avail that sight and partake prasad distributed by the priest.  It is a pilgrimage centre of great importance.
