Thiruvidaimarudhur Ther Utsavam – January 23rd 2016


Sri Mahalinga Swami Temple in Thiruvidaimarudhur a great Sivasthalam, is known as Madhyarjunam. The main Ther of Sri Mahalinga Swami is one of the biggest Ther like Thiruvarur temple Ther. Due to various reasons, all the five Ther(s) of Thiruvidaimarudhur temple disintegrated over time. After 1933 Utsavam, there has been no Ther Utsavam in Thiruvidaimarudhur until the Big Ther of Sri Mahalinga Swami was reconstructed in 2006.

மகாலிங்க சுவாமி மஹா ரதம் ஏறி வந்தா இந்த லோகம் சுபிக்க்ஷமா இருக்கும் – மகாபெரியவா வாக்கு!

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.
