Description of the picture: This Gold shawl was offered by the Tanjore King Sivaji Raja II when he performed Kanakabhishekam to the Acharya of the Peetam soon after the Tatanka Prathishta at Thiruvanaikaval… The Gowri Shankar Rudraksha with Diamond pendant – a rare jewel was offered to the Acharya by the Great Maratta King Nana Saheb (Hero of the 1857 rebellion) during his brief soujorn in Nepal, immediately after the Indian Mutiny! Nana Saheb’s letter to the Acharya evidencing his acknowledgement of the receipt of Mantrakshata and Blessings from the Acharya and dispatch of Nana’s Offerings such as Rudraksha, Kasthuri Chamara etc.,was later published under the Divine orders of Sri Periyava…

*Special thanks to Sri Ganapathy Subramanian (Vanjiyur) for these details.
