Kamakshi Amman sametha Marundeeswarar and Anjaneyar Temple
at Vada Iluppai, near Kanchipuram, Tamilnadu

24 April 2015

This Shiva temple is located at Vada Iluppai, 16 kms to the west of Kancheepuram on the banks of River Palar (on the road connecting Kanchi and Arcot). Vada Iluppai is also celebrated as "Madhuga Shethram", "Dindima Kavi Shethram" and "Brahma Vidhyapuram".

Lord Maruntheeswarar faces West, which is itself an exceptional factor. The name of the Lord denotes," a doctor who can rescue mankind from all diseases".

Devotees perform puja on Sundays to Hanuman, and He appears in their dreams and offers them solution from all difficulties. Lord Anjaneya and Guru Dakshinamurthy face each other, which is a good remedy for all problems created by Lord Saneeshwara. This exceptional arrangement is a good cure for delayed marriages, doshas in baby birth etc. The combined blessings of Guru Bhagwan and Lord Hanuman is a strong defence for human kind to come out of all adversities. We are aware of the true statement that Lord Guru's vision always bestows us countless bliss. To top it all, Lord Anjaneya gives his presence, in the dreams of those who worship him and endows them with His golden blessings.

Arunagirinathar has sung in praise of Vada Iluppai as "Anybody who wishes freedom from rebirth should eternally worship Vada Iluppai". This sanctified temple has been visited by many Gnanis, Gurus, Saints, Vidhwans etc. As per the words of Shri Chandrasekara Saraswathi Swamigal, Goddess Kamakshi lives perpetually here and offers Her Omnipotent blessings to mankind. Eminent saints like Thapovanam Gnanaananda Swamigal, Sheshadri Mahan, Poondi Mahan, Sri Arunagirinadha Swamigal have offered their pujas here.

The ancient temple is getting spruced up and preparations are under way for consecrating Swarna Akarshana Bhairavar and other deities. This is one of the rare places where Swarna Akarshana Bhairavar is seen with His consort.

It is planned to perform the sacred yagam, known as Thatanka Pratishtai, along with the kumbabishekam and also the installation of Sri Chakra for Kamakshi Amman as per the Sri Vidya Mantra Sastra. Guru Puja is to be conducted shortly at this shrine.
