MahaPeriyava blessed Shri Ramagopalan Ji of Hindu Munnani with Poorna Palan asking him to take up the initiative of reconstruction of Sri Mahalinga Swami Temple Ther(s).
MahaPeriyava’s Sankalpam of bringing back Sri Mahalinga Swami Temple Ther to life became Sampooranam through Pujyasri Dayananda Saraswathi Swamigal’s tireless efforts and support.
Shri Mahesh of Thiruvidaimarudhur is a blessed soul who has taken up this initiative to his heart. He remained as a “Brahmachari” dedicating his life for Sri Mahalinga Swami Temple Ther Thirupani.
