  1. A heart-warming compilation of useful info.Thank you.

  2. thank u for the useful information.

  3. Dear Sir,
    This information is for all of us is superb.but one confusion is their that i cannot understand.for example,pushya nakshatra you wrote abathsahayeswarar temple,alangudi.than akshayapureeswar koil vilangulam in thanjavur. again below karkadeswar temple near thiruvisanallur.please clarify this.

    • Abathsahayeswarar Temple is for Punarpoosam or Punarvasu Nakshathiram. For every nakshathiram there are two temples. You can visit whichever is convenient. For Pushya, it is either Akshayapureeswarar koil near Tanjore or Karkadeswarar Koil near Thiruvisanallur. Hope this clarifies your doubt.

  4. Dear Mr Narayanan this is wonderful blog giving very useful information. Do check out my blog when you find time and provide feedback


  5. Sir,
    Thanks for ur commendable solace to minds.
    I wish to convey few points. Most of the people inform about small temples,but powerful around Three ” T”s – Tanjore , Tiruchi & Tirunelveli Districts ( all undivided before 70s).
    There are temples which are completely unknown to outsiders in Coimbatore,Dindigul,Sivaganga Karaikudi areas which are equally powerful in performances. Thadicombu – Swarnaakaeshna bairavar, Edaikaattur siththar temple, Devakottai perumal temples, Pattamangalam thakshinamuthy with very old stahlavriksha behind it, few to mention .
    R Swaminathan
