TIRUVANNAMALAI

Along with the sanctity attained by its, Mulavirats, thrithams and sthalams, the annual beacon festival - Karthikadeepam is raising its importance and contributing much to win global attention to such enviable degree that the mere mention of Tiruvannarnalai brings salvation to the religionists, whereas to get the same merit, according to puranas, one has to be born at Tiruvarur, or adore the Lord of Chidambaram, or shuffle off  the mortal coils at Kasi. No wonder then that it has been casting an irresistable spell on religionists and saints since its emergence in the Krita yuga. Eminent Nayanmars of Saivism and Alwars of Vaishnavisim not only visited several times, but sang in praise of the Lord extempore, besides composing master pieces. 

Among the galaxy of spiritual celebrities, Sage Gautama, Pangu Muni, King Brihadatta, demon king Pulakathipa, Appar, Sarnbandar; Sundarar, Manicavachagar; Arunagirinathar, Guhai Narnasivayar, Isanya Gnana Desikar, Virupaksha Devar, Daivasikamani Desikar deserve special mention. They owe their eminence to their association with the Lord Siva alone, and obtained salvation by worshipping hire. Rarnana Maharshi, Seshadri Swamigal, Jatini Shanmuga yogini and Iswara Swamigal adorn the list of modern age mahatmas.
