Tirunelveli - Ravana playing on the Veena Introduction

Tirunelveli is the Headquarters of the Tirunelveli District. In the days of the Pandyas, it was their capital city for some time.

There is a story behind the name of the town Tirunelveli. Once there was a Brahmin in this town named Veda Sarma who was a great Siva Bhakta. He was very poor. Every day he went out begging and the alms thus gathered were used for offering naivedya to the Lord.

One day, when the brahmin was drying the paddy which he had collected for offering to Siva, it rained suddenly and it was feared that all the paddy might be washed away.

Author : Shri R. K. Das
