Detailed overview

A town that offers a significant history adorned in its countless temples and ashrams, Thiruvannamalai is where Hindu Mythology takes the form of stunning architecture. In ancient times, the term “Annamalai” meant an inaccessible mountain. The word “Thiru” was prefixed to signify its greatness, and coupled with the two terms, it is called Tiruvannamalai.

  • Skandashram: This is a cave where Ramana Maharshi spent his time in Thiruvannamalai
  • Virupaksha Cave: This cave is seemed to be named after the renowned 13th-century saint named Virupaksha Deva, who apparently spent most of his life here.
