THIRUVANAIKAVAL, TRICHY

When I was in India recently in October of 2013, I visited the famed Thiruvanaikaval Temple upon arriving in Trichy and spending the night at Hotel Temple In. The family, Jnana Jyothi Amma, Dr Ram Supramaniam and Deva moved on to the temple after breakfast at the Hotel. This was my second visit to the Thiruvanaikaval Temple after my last one in 2003. Both moments at this temple will be cherished by me life long.



Cows, bullock carts, honking of the traffic greet us the next morning



A good, delicious way to start the day - compliments of Hotel Temple In

At Thiruvanaikaval
I came across the following video where artifacts depicting the very well known story of the elephant and the spider at this temple is shown and the infamous legend narrated by the Vice Curator of the Quanzhou Maritime Museum in China.


Later when Bala Chandran and Surendaran Selvaratnam of Malaysia travelled to Kallar to participate in the Annual Guru Puja and Jayanthi celebrations for Agathiyar, they visited Thiruvanaikaval Temple too.
