TEMPLE OF THE DAY: Thirumeeyachur Sri Lalithambiga sametha Sri Meganatha swamy.
This ancient temple is in Thiruvarur district of TN and the present temple complex is ~ 1200 -1300 years old...contd (1/n) @punarutthana @ReclaimTemples @SaveTemplesBH @Temple369
Many Chola kings & queens including Chembian Mahadevi had contributed to this temple. Lord Shiva is in swayambu Linga form as Meganatha swamy. The supreme mother blesses all as Lalitha Tripura Sundari in Sri Chakra Raja Simhasanam (throne)..contd (2/n)
This is the birth place of Sri Lalitha Sahasranama. Lord Hayagriyar blessed Sage Agastya the 1008 names of Sri Lalitha. It is also the same place Sage Agasthya with his wife Lopamudra sang the well known ‘Sri Chakra Raja Simhasaneshwari’ song.
Stalapuranam: This is the birth place of Garuda and Aruna ( charioteer of Sun). When sage Kashyapa along with his wives Vinatha and Karthru prayed for child boon, Lord gave them two eggs. Garuda was born from egg of Vinatha while Karthru hurriedly broke the other one..contd (4/n)
Due to while, Karthru’s child became disfigured. But the ever merciful Lord blessed him to become the charioteer of Sun.
There is also a wonderful sculpture of Sri Kshetrapuraneeshwarar in which Lord Shiva is seen cajoling Goddess Parvati.
You can see Ambal’s face having both expressions of anger and joy at diff angles.
A very recent miracle I would like to highlight. In early 2000, a pious woman from Bengaluru had a dream in which Godess asked for a pair of anklets as gift...contd (5/n)
However she was completely unaware to where she has to donate. She made a pair of golden anklets, went in search of every temple where it would fit the vigraham. One day, she saw the image of Sri Lalithambiga and recognised immediately. She set out and offered at Thiruneeyachur
May the supreme mother Sri Lalitha Tripura Sundari bless us all 🙏🏻

Nincompoops like @srinivasaiims are completely unaware of their own history. If you are a true Tamil, you should know your history. The first known Tamil grammer Agathiyam was written by Great Sage Agathiyar around 2000 B.C or even before.
He was one of the greatest proponents of Saiva Siddhanta and Devi upasakar. Bhagwan Mahavir came much later in 5-6th century B.C. He was originally from Kingdom of Videhas present day Bihar whereas the ancient Tamizhagam has been a seat of Shaiva Siddhanda since time immemorial
The divine Tamil language has its roots from Shaiva Siddhanta originated from Lord Shiva and propagated by Lord Murugan/Karthikeya. That’s why Lord Murugan is the patron diety of Tamil language.
