    Anyway... Srirangam includes thiruvanaikoil and pondy_thanjavur route includes kumbakonam also I suppose.

    Kumbakonam is also famous for its vessels and special asafoetida. ( Get it from the shop situated opposite to chakrapani temple)
    madhu: You missed Sirkazhi, Vaidheeswarankoil, Mayiladuthurai, Thiruvidaimarudhur, Thiribhuvanam, Thirunageswaram, Dharasuram (World Heritage monument), Patteeswaram, Swamimalai, Thiruvaiyaar,.............
    Take a detour and visit Tiruvarur, KilveLur, Sikkil and Nagapattinam!
    I think Paramashivan should visit all "paadal petra sthalangaL" this time because he is Sivan !

    ( I don't want him missing Mannargudi, my birth place! )

    yeah...
    எங்கள் தமிழ் நாட்டின் புராண மகிமையை பார்த்து ஆச்சர்ய படுங்கள்.

    திருவாரூர் தியாகராஜ கோயில்
    located near தஞ்சாவூர்.
    மூலவர் - த்யாகராஜர்.
    அம்பிகை - கமலாம்பிகை .
    remember the say 'திருவாரூர் தேர் அழகு'

    தேவர்கள் திருப்பாற்கடலை கடைந்த போது பாம்பு கக்கிய விஷத்தை சிவா பெருமான் தன கண்டத்தில் அடக்கி
    திருநீலகண்டர் ன்னு சொல்லுவாங்க, rt
    one of those 7 சிவலிங்கம் is திருவாரூர் கோயில்.

    vinatha.

    1. Everything in TN is rich with history, especially on religion. TN is basically the best place for a pilgrimage and of course to discover your roots. So come prepared with a camera and a video camera. It would help if you google the places you wish to visit beforehand so that you would know what to expect and marvel at.

    2. Outside Chennai there are hardly any 5-star hotels. This is Asia you are talking about. What you can do is tell your agent to book you clean and good hotels - and inspect the rooms before you check in.
    Five star hotels in Chennai would include Le Royal Meridien, Taj Coromandel, The Park, Fishermans Cove, Radisson, Taj Connemara, Trident Hilton, etc.

    3. Watch the movie Thirumalai Thenkumari. Anyway, your itinerary will depend on the number of days you spend in India. See my next post for some suggestions.

    4. TN is a heaven for vegetarian food. You can visit any restaurants and as long as it is air conditioned, you can be assured of hygiene. In order not to take risks, restrict your drinks to bottled water - ensure the cap is sealed. Refrain from any liquid that is not boiled including ice cubes.

    5. Every temple is not just a temple, but also a shopping complex. Wear your biggest smile and start the bargaining session. Try not to bargain with the small time shops - be generous.
    WOW many thanks for this
