Why Choose Thiruvannamalai ?
When we hear people settling down at very small hill town of Thiruvannamalai in Tamilnadu it may sound a bit weird. But its not just settling down in another town but living beneath the God himself. Thiruvannamalai hill is as such the Adhi Linga the Fire of Lord Shiva himself. Thiruvannamalai is much greater than just a town.
It was Lord Shiva who himself appeared as a huge ball of Fire lighting up the world which went into darkness and he remained there as Lord Arunachaleshwarar. People during the Pournami Day (Full Moon Day) walk bare footed all along the mountain praying to Shiva Himself which is called Giri Valam.
All along the Girivalm path we will find great Sadhus and Sithars who come from all around the world leaving back their worldly pleasures seeking the blessings of Lord Arunachaleshwarar. Great saitns like Bhagwan Sri Ramana Maharishi to Yogi Ramsurathkumar have settled down at Thiruvannamalai to attain the godly peace.
