From "Vathirayiruppu" near Virudhunagar, we have to take Share Auto/Bus up to "Thanipparai". Then have to walk for Hours to climb up the Mountain inside the forest. Recent flood in May, has made Forest Dept enforce restriction for public on all days.

Distance from Thaaniparai to Mahalingam temple is around 10 plus KM and entire track is totally steep. This Hill has lot of herbs and these herbs can be identified by those who are experienced in knowledge about medicines with spirituality. It is... More

When Parvathi asked Lord Siva as to why Bringi Maharishi did not pay his tributes to her, Lord Siva explained that those who have left everything... More
