PADAL PETRA SHIVA STHALANGAL THIRUVOTRIYUR SHIVA TEMPLE AND PATTINATHAR TEMPLE DHARSHAN

08, March 2015.
During my early morning walk on this Sunday, thought of making a visit to Thiruvotriyur before completion of manadala pooja after the kumbhabhishekam. My original plan was to go by Train to Thiruvotriyur from Guindy. On the way suddenly struck to my mind that the trains  from Tambaram to Beach were cancelled due to maintenance work, which I read in the news paper a day before. So I went through bus up to Central from Guindy and from there by Train.

Had the dharshan of Sri Adhipureswarar, Sri Thiyagarajar, Sri ThiruvOtreeswarar and Sri Vadivudai Ammbal. Last time I could not circumambulate Sri Adhipureeswarar due to maintenance works. This time I had the peaceful dharshan.

After dharshan proceeded to Pattinathar temple by walk ( nearly 2 KM and while return also). After Kumbhabhishekam temple found very neat and clean. Still works are in full swing for laying of granite stone for the prakaram. Not much of crowd. I had the dharshan and meditated for a while.

While returning from  Pattinathar temple peeped inside a Jeeva samdhi of Sri la Sri Veeraragava swamykal,  who attained mukthi during 1964. It is about 5 to 6 feet below the ground level. 
Sri la sri Veeragavar Jeeva samadhi
Returned to home via Braodway and Guindy through bus. It was a tedious journey but I could not  feel much due to the blessings of Shiva and Pattinathar.
