19th February 2016
Day – 2,  03-02-2016.
After the dharshan of Pandaripuram Sri  Pandarinathar,  instead of staying at Pandaripuram we proceeded to Parali, the first Jothir Lingam of our list,  as scheduled. Reached Parali  and accommodated in Halge Garden Lodge ( 9822634777) near the temple. Parali is in line with Kanyakumari and Ujjain.  

PARLI SRI VAIJNATH TEMPLE
It was 16.00 hrs when we entered the temple and observed that the temple was kept open and the devotees are allowed to worship Lord Shiva from a distance and place the offering on Shiva’s face kept at the artha mandapam. For about one hour we recited thiruvasakam and devaram and Shiva namavali at the artha mandapam. After 17.00 hrs we are allowed to do the sparsa seva- touch and pray.

Iraivan : Sri Vaidyanathar ( Sri Vijnath in Marathi language )
