Mahashivratri 2016, Sri Dhandeeswarar Temple & Sri-la-Sri Chidambaram Periya Swamikal Samadhi Mandir

08th March, 2016.
This year’s mahashivratri went on very well with the dharsan of Sri Dhandeeswarar and Sri Sarveswarar aka Panchamuka lingeswarar. Both temples are at Velachery,  also both are walkable distance from my residence.  Sri Dhandeeswarar temple is of 1000 years old and was built during Chozha reign. My son dropped me near the temple and found  an  unusual crowd with lot of Police to regulate the crowd.  4 kaala poojas ( 21.00 Hrs, 23.00 Hrs, 02.00 Hrs and 04.00 Hrs ) are performed  in both the temples.

SRI DHANDEESWARAR TEMPLE
Since Sri Dhandeeswarar temple mandapam is very small and it cannot accommodate more than 10 persons and mostly the donors and local political persons used to occupy. Skipped 1st kaala pooja, since the crowd was too large and had the darsan  of Lord Shiva during other poojas. Even for other poojas it took  about an hour  to reach the sanctum. The crowd slowly decreased for the 3rd and 4th kaala poojas. ( For further Details )

SRI- LA- SRI CHIDAMBARAM PERIYA SWAMIKAL JEEVA SAMADHI TEMPLE ( MANDIR) – SRI SARVESWARAR – PANCHAMUKA LINGAM.

This Shiva Temple a new one  and the moolavar  has 4 faces on all four directions and one face is on the top. Most of the time spend in this temple since the crowd was less and seen the abhishekam also. Sri-la-Sri Chidambaram Periya Swamikal, was a siddhar and he  was responsible for the reconstruction of  Sri Dhandeeswarar Temple after damaged due to age. This temple is unique in construction. The Jeeva Samadhis  of Sri-la-Sri Chidambaram Periya Swamikal and his disciple   Sri Ambalavanan are  surrounded by the sannadhis of Vinayagar, Subramaniyar, Sarabeswarar, Ambal, Pancha muka Anjaneyar, Kubera  Vishnu, Shiva, Navagrahas and Siddhars.  Vinayagar, Anjaneyar, Sakthi has more than one face.
