TIRUVANNAMALAI

THE GLORY OF ARUNACHALA

The sthalapurnam eulogizes the greatness of this place through several of its seemingly fantastic but true stories linked with both divine and historical personages. As it is soaked in divinity since ages it is the first of the five bhutasthalas and called Tejusthalam, others found at Kanchipuram, called Prithvisthalam; Tiruvanaikaval, Apsthalam; Kalahasti, Vayusthalam and Chidambaram, Akasasthalam. Further it is one of the six Athara Kshetras called Manipooraga kshetra. 

It is recorded that they are as many as 360 thirthas and 400 lingams in the eight-mile-circuit of  this sacred Hill - Arunachala. Around the Hill they are many hermitages inhabited by holy personages of supreme spiritual eminence, like Ramanasram, Seshadri Swarnigal Sannidhi, Durvas- asram, Goutama asram, Adi Annamalai temple, Manicavachagar temple, Isanya Gnanadesikar Mutt, Durga temple, besides the famous Virupaksha cave, Sadai Swami cave and Mamarathu cave in the central portion of the top.
