Pradosham
As you may be aware, Pradosham is performed regularly in all Shiva temples when Trayodasi Thithi falls between 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM World Wide from the time immemorial.

Keeping many devotees' desires in mind, we have covered only those aspects which are found to be useful for performing simple poojas and other Nithya Karmas - in addition to interesting events that had taken place in different Shiva temples in many parts of the country. Our mission is to spread the Glory of Lord Shiva, promote PRADOSHAM and narrate His Holy Acts among the devotees.

In South India, five temples were built for each of the five elements – Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space. These are the Pancha Bhuta Sthalas.

The temple for water is in Thiruvanaikaval, fire is Thiruvannamalai, Kalahasti is air and Kanchipuram is earth. The temple for space is in Chidambaram.

The Chidambaram temple is an incredible space. The newer part of the temple is around a thousand years old but no one knows how old the older part of the temple is. People say it is 3,500 years or more. This is how Indian culture has been. Even in ancient times, just look at the kind of temples they built. more...

To our surprise, we wound the road leading to Churattapalli was of international standards. The neat three lane Chennai-Kolkatta highway made our holy trip smooth. We reached the Toll Gate in Karanodai and were advised to take a left turn to Periya Palayam. This road to Periya Palayam after the Toll Gate is a 2 way narrow lane, more....
