Now with a small team of locals lead by our excavator Shri. Parandaman, the trees were safely cut and removed. The Shiva Linga could be seen well. A west facing Pallava Temple, fully built with brick was exposed and the excavation is on. A small budget of Rs. 10.00 lakhs is estimated for rebuilding this temple using similar styled brick mortar and we seek help from all to complete this project. By Deva Prasnam, an interesting aspect got revealed. The Lord is named RuNa Hara Iswar meaning One who removes debts and the Ambal, as AbarNa again meaning remover of debts. The two ponds nearby were revealed as RuNa hara theertham and Dana AGarshana Theertham,interestingly meaning a dip in one will get rid of your debts and the dip in the other gets you wealth!
Last Saturday was Shani Pradosham. This year is marked with this one and the only Sani pradosham. We had elaborate Puja done by the villagers and all had opportunity to do Abhishekam on the Linga. A wonderful site to see.
