The temple town of Tiruvannamalai Temples is one of the most ancient heritage sites of India and is a center of the Saiva religion. The Arunachala hill and its environs have been held in great regard by the Tamils for centuries.The temple is grand in conception and architecture and is rich in tradition, history and festivals.
Legend has it that Shiva manifested himself in the form of a massive column of fire, whose crown and feet, Bhramma and Vishnu attempted in vain to reach. A celebration of this manifestation is seen today in the age old traditions observed in the Shivaratri and the Kartikai Deepam Utsavams held in Tiruvannamalai Temples.
There is an air of deep mysticism around the temple, the hill and its environs and the town itself has been known for its long association with Yogis, Siddhas, the well known spiritual savant Ramana Maharshi and several others in Tiruvannamalai Temples tour. The origin of this temple dates way back in time, although much of the temple structure as seen today, is a result of building activity of Temples in Tiruvannamalai over the last one thousand years
