TIRUVANNAMALAI

The holy shrine adorned with gigantic, stately towers, lofty prakaras with strong rampart walls, magnificent huge mandapas, beautified by matchless sculptural marvels and architectural grandeur, containing numerous shrines for every adorable deity of Hindu Pantheon, covering a very vast area of 25 acres, speaks  volumes of the glory of temple and omni benevolence of Bhaktavasankar, the presiding deity.

It is here Lord Maheswar chastised Brahma for lying to him in connection with finding the top of the blazing column - his manifestation; it is here he is remaining in the form of Hill and appearing as Jyoti every year on Karthika Pournami; it is at this place he shared half of his body to Parvathi; it is here the celebrated Manikavachagar composed Tiruvernbavai; it is here the world famous Bhagawan Ramana Maharshi immortalised the Lord's glory in 108 verses in ecstatic rhapsody; it is here Daivasikamani Desikar demonstrated his yogic powers to bringing back to life the dead horse of a certain Chola King; it is here Isanya Gnana Desikar enabled a European Collector, crossing the flooded river with his spiritual powers; it is here Guhai Namasivayar and Guru Namasivayar wrote Arunagiri Anthathi and Annamalai Venba; in praise of this Lord, Siva Prakasa Swamigal composed Sonasaila Malai; it is here Ellappa Navalar authored the Arunachala puranam; it is with the grace of this deity Vallala Maharaja had the unique honour of his funeral obsequies performed by Lord Siva himself; and it is here several Swamigal attained Siddhi. The miracles of the Lord Siva thus roll into legions and display his unbounded love for bhaktas.
