Experience With MahaPeriyava: By Sri Pattabhiraman Mama – Part 1

Among the six ‘padai veedus’ of Lord Muruga, the Swamimalai shrine of Sri Swaminatha Swami had MahaKumbabhishekam performed this week. While we all know the “Sthala Puranam” of Swamimalai, it is very intriguing and astonishing to know the “Sthala Puranam” of Uttara Swamimalai Kovil in New Delhi


Sri Pattabhiraman mama is 91 years old now. He has been one among the blessed founding members who has been instrumental in bringing forth Uttara Swamimalai kovil. He narrates all about their experience with MahaPeriyava and their journey in bringing forth Uttara Swamimalai.

There is a saying that “Patience is not the ablility to wait, but the ability to keep GOOD FAITH and GOOD ATTITUDE while waiting”… Sri MahaPeriyava has blessed all the people involved in bringing up this shrine with immense faith and good attitude and guided them throughout their 12 years of journey from 1961-1973 …

Right from identifying a place for the temple till the Kumbabhishekam, MahaPeriyava has been the key for Uttara Swamimalai. Pattabhiraman mama whole heartedly believes that the Swaminatha Swami in Uttara Swamimalai is none another Sri MahaPeriyava…

Our hearty thanks to Sri Ganesan, Nanganallur for his efforts in capturing this video. Here is Part 1 of Pattabhiraman mama’s interview…


  1. Ramani Balasubramanian says

    Very informational interview. The incidents that happened before the construction reinforces the belief that the presently called Malai MAndir in Delhi is indeed visited by none other than Paravathi and Parmeshwara in the form a cow. Periyavaa who appears in dream shows he is non other than Muruga and so indeed is the place is blessed. I will surely visit this one day soon. My son in Delhi keeps visiting this. Now, that I have more background, I can pass this information to him.
