Needs Attention

Here are some temples that are undergoing renovation and need the attention of the devotees… It is not a matter of how much we give but it’s a matter of our participation however small it is.


April 2015:

A temple is coming up for an ancient lingam found on the roadside at Cheptpat (not the one in town) in the Manimangalam – Sriperumpudhur road. Pls refer my blog article

The temple is coming up very well with contributions from many devotees. The villagers themselves are contributing in a big way by way of money and labour. Still it needs some strong push to keep it going uninterrupted. Major money is required for the labour for the Sthapathy.
I am personally part of the team and so I make a personal request to my  blog friends to contribute however small it is and participate in this holy task. You will be supporting a village that has a strong faith in Hinduism and saving it from any religious conversion attempts. There is no temple account created as such and so you can contact any of the following people:
Sri Ramamoorthy @ 99403 98648 / Raju @ 98407 41398 / Gopi @ 98842 08855

Dear Asthikas,

We are happy to share that a new Vedha patasala is coming up in Athur village – situated in the banks of river Palar, enroute Chengelput and Kanchipuram, under the care of Tapas trust – This has been conceptualised with blessings of acharya swamigal of both Kanchi as well as Sringeri. A two storey building has been dedicated with a capacity to accommodate upto 30 young boys. Also, there is already a functioning Goshala with 3 pairs of cows and a male calf inside the Patashala campus.

As Kanchi maha periyavaa has said there are two parts to Veda rakshanam –
(1) practice by self and
(2) supporting the vedha patasalas (oral tradition of learning in Guru sishya mode) and supporting the Vedha Vidhwans.

We would like to invite all asthikas with interest in Vedha Rakshanam to join us in our efforts and any contribution in cash and / kind are most welcome.

  6. Friend ,

    My team of two to four members are on move to many parts of India and abroad on Ethno medical research and other related works while collecting details of traditional healers and Saints in this regards. To stay it is very costly at many parts of our collections spots. Moreover we are moving on our financial risks only , no donations are collected or no funding organisation supports us.

    On minimum payment shall we stay in any ashrams , if permit . Kindly guide us to promote our traditional medical research works . Please reply at your leisure time while informing rate of stay .

    On success of our work , we can provide employment felicities to many public . But now meeting expenditure is very problem at our own funds.

    With regards

  7. Dear Sir,

    I would be greatfull to you, if you could publish/telecast the temple programme of Lord Thenkkarai Maharajeswarar of Chittoor Temple in your esteemed media.

    This temple is in Chittoor village, near Valliyur in Tirunelveli district of Tamil Nadu which is on the way from Tirunelveli to Nagercoil.Chittoor can also be reached from Radhaburam which is near Koondankulam.

    The significance of this temple is, this is the only temple dedicated to Lord Ayyappa’s younger brother. Most Swamy ayyappa’s devotees donot know that there is a brother for Him.

    After Lord Ayyappa gave Pulli Paal (Tiger’s Milk) and went and settled in Sanidhanam, the Queen of Pandalam gave birth to a son, named Gunasegaran. The king of Pandalam Rajasegaran wanted to incarnate his son Gunasegaran as the king of Pandalam, Gunasegaran, refused, since his brother, Lord Ayyappa, was not incarnated as the king.

    Gunasegaran, left Pandalam and wandered throughout the world and came to Chittoor and settled there. Many stories and myths are associated with this temple.

    Every year, on Tamil month “Pangunni” and star utharam a festival is held and lakhs of devotees throng this temple to darshan the event. This year on 3rd of April this festival falls and during the car festival in the evening a miracle use to happen. That is a goat is sacrificed and immediately after the car festival the goat sacrificed comes in to life by the Gods blessings.

    I do not know more about the temple, as I have visited only twice. But the Swamy Aadi (Vellichappaadu) whose name is Thalavai Swamy knows more about the temple and his cell number is 96 77 955 617 / 94 86 41 33 66. You can contact him for more details.

    Dear Sir, I will be grateful to you if you could publish this Temple festival in your esteemed Magazine/News paper or Telecast in your Television.

    This will be a great boon, blessings to all the Lord Ayyappa’s devotees.

    Thanking you in anticipation,
    Yours truly,


  8. Sir

  9. Dear sir,

    I am Valli from Malaysia. I am trying to trace my ancestor. My father is pretty sure that he is from gounder family but he is unclear about his koolam..He also knows that his father is from Senji, Villupuram and he worshipped Pacahiamman. Is it possible which population of people (koolam) stayed there and prayed to the God?’

    I would really appreciate if you could kindly help me.

    Thank you!

    • You can come directly here and search for a Week. You have to have some photo etc. People will visit the temple during pooja etc at those time one has a chance to find the roots of your ancestor.

    • hi
      do you have details of the temple you mentioned about
      the priest/caretaker please

  11. Number of bramin boys are getting frestreated due to the non availability of girls and becoming more than 40 years This is due to the demand made by girls and the greedy nature of people to get boys with property,car,bank balance overseas assignment etc. The people who are having web sites and match makers are not even looking at this issue.
    is there any temple to bless the boys who are struggling to get a girl to marry and settle down even if they are middle class and getting reasonable salary
