    I’ve been to Thiruvannamalai a couple of times. It is such a peaceful place. Especially the Ramana Maharshi aahram.

    I had no idea about the story behind the mountain. Thanks for sharing that.
    I did the Girivalam parikrama last month, on Poornima, my 2nd time doing so.
    I’ll have to contradict you that it is not taken casually nor is it a fashion statement. I am always impressed how even little kids complete the walk so solemly .
    Thiruvannamalai has just a soothing aura and it is always a surprise how the 14 km trek just does not seem to tire you.

    I remember visiting the temple some 10 years ago. We also drove from Bangalore.
    The writeup was informative. It’s always refreshing to know about such places.

    Good informative post on the Temple. Never visited it but the next time I am visiting South India will definitely tick it off.

    As always you’ve done youe full. Justice to describe this place. With the story in the beginning it became all the more interesting and the places seemed to be getting more values.

    I had heard this mythological story of Shiva taking the form of fire but had no idea that Thiruvannamalai was the place where it happened. It is such a nice post with your family pics. I have always loved the temples of South India because of their unique architecture. Wish to go visit this place of Shiva.

    That’s a great description of the place, not to mention a peep into the mythology too! I am guilty of not having been to the South of India much, but these places sound so fascinating. Will need to make a few trips to do justice to them.
