Eventhough there are many HINDU TEMPLES in India and also in some other parts of the world, Temples in Tamilnadu have special significance. These Hindu Temples, glorified in Tamil Tevaram hymns, are referred as Paadal Petra Shiva Sthalangal. These Temples have been in existence for more than 1000 years because reference to these temples are found in Tevaram Hymns which were composed and authored by the 3 Nayanamar viz., Thirunavukarasar, Sambandar and Sundarar who lived between 7th and 9th century A.D. These hymns throw more light on Tamilnadu Temples, its art treasures, culture, civilization etc.
I have the opportunity to visit certain temples in and around chennai. I took pictures of those temples and presented in this blog
