Description

Arunchala, as we know, is amongst the oldest pieces of land on earth today, as has been confirmed by geologists. Scientists say that it dates back to the very creation of the Earth. The hill is said to be Siva manifest. There are many myths associated with Arunchala, and the author relates them, especially the story of Parvati's penance. Perhaps the most interesting sections of this book dealing with Arunachala is the discussion of devotees of Arunachala, hymns, ancient literature and miracles connected with the holy hill. The pilgrim will find of great interest the decryption of the 14-km Gripradkshina, or circumamulation of the mountain.
