|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
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".

Vidhwans etc. As per the words of Shri Chandrasekara Saraswathi

Omnipotent blessings to mankind. Eminent saints like Thapovanam
Gnanaananda Swamigal, Sheshadri Mahan, Poondi Mahan, Sri Arunagirinadha
Swamigal have offered their pujas here.
