    27th or 6th March. We are going by two wheeler, i want to know any other near by
    places or temples to visit. We are from Pondicherry. If any other places kindly
    inform me. I am eagerly awaiting for your response.
  • In later chola period there were number of capitals.

    Apart from Gangai Konda Cholapuram, they had Chidambaram, Trichy Samayapuram, Hosur etc.

    The Choals shifted their capital from one place to other. Don' t know the reason. They constructed Siva Temple before building/ rising their capital.

    Since Chdambaram was one among them If you read that attached text, you will realize that Vijaya Nagara Captains played a major role in Chidambaram played caste role to uplift the Vaishnavaites and never bothered to kill Dikshithars with women.

    Chidambaram is a place where the sub treasury was maintained and accounts were maintained. Some tears before in a room they discovered a palm leaves collections that had full accounts statement.

    We Will surely Visit the temple
  • Dear sir

    Yesterday (27/02/2010) morning We visited the temple AMIRTHAKADESWARAR AALAYAM
    in Melakadambur. We reached there by 9.30 am but find temple is closed, so we
    search for Gurukkal house which is on the back side of the temple, he was gone
    for some another temple for Poojas so waited till 11 am. After our arrival,
    some one from Chidrambaram and a couple (don't know where they from) joined
    us. The Gurukkal came and opened the temple and we worship and take some
    pictures of the temple (i will upload the pictures later).
    Inside the temple we found a banner which indicates route map for temple. If
    you have add this to the temple blogspot it will be helpful to reach the temple,
    as persons who interested like us. (it is just a suggestion).

    We really thank very much you for the information provided.

    Note: As per the Gurukkal the temple will be open after
    10.00 am (everyday)

Howdy, Stranger!
