KUMARAGIRI - DANDAYUDHAPANI TEMPLE

Philanthropists and devout bhaktas strive incessantly to turn the moor-lost mankind go god-wards by their indefitagable work through several ways, like conducting of bhajans, arranging discourses, performing yagnas, building special shrines etc. And with these they achieve lasting results; for, temples are the centres of national integration and cradles of culture. Realising its immense potentialities, rulers built hundreds of shrines. Even certain individuals without wealth in any tangible form, built temples for public by their soul power manifested in pious living. The goodwill they earned enabled them to build mandirs. Sometimes far surpassing the .ones patronised by kings.

This Kumaragiri Dandayudhapani temple is the best example belonging to that category. Listen to the Sthalapurana - a great devotee by name Karupanna Swamigal, who by raising donations built a grand temple in Ammapettai of Salem town. AS he led a pious life and endeared himself by his selfless devotional activities, donations started flowing in, when he made attempts to build a temple. People contributed their mighty mite in several forms. Public cooperation and divine benediction found vying with each other during the building operations. Celebrated devotees lent their ungrudging support then. Hence the emergence of a shrine. The Lord is conferring boons liberally and hence heavy rush in the mornings and evenings. Periodical festivals too are grandly celebrated.

It is in the heart of the weaving community of Salem town, accessible by walk or rickshaw.
