Shobha(usha) gowri Right time to talk of this temple!! Arunachaleswara Temple in Tiruvannamalai is dedicated to Lord Siva and it is one of the largest temples in India . Arunachaleswara temple is one of the "Panch Boodha Sthalams" and it is "Agni" Sthalam. Therefore th elighting of the Karthikai deepam here is a world renowned event For days ahead large ropes are twisted together to form the :Thiri"-the wick to light the lamp atop the hill in a natural basin -upppppp. And then tins of ghee will go up-tons of it Only afte rthe light is lit there are other deepams for Karthikai lit-so they would send out fireworks to announce that it is complete-there are live telecasts these days in all Tamil channels A stunning experience to be in the temple that is the largest one around with the highest gopuram among all temples. such mixed architecture too-started some time in the 10th century it was constantly built into till the late 17th century-well something like an encyclopedia-all architectural forms in one temple It has also the importance as "Padal Petra Sthalam". That is the four famous 'Saiva Saints and Poets' such Appar, Sundarar, Manichkavasakar and Thirugnana Sambandar made several poems on Lord Arunachaleswara.
