Tamil Nadu Government has sanctioned sum of Rs. 2 crore for renovation of the main tower and restoration of the damaged wooden car, as part of the renovation works being carried out in the ancient and architecturally-rich Lord Bhaktavatsaleshwarar in Thirukulakundram. The work on the renovation of the Lord Vedagirishwarar temple here commenced on Monday.

About Lord Vedagirishwarar temple

Lord Vedagirishwarar temple is at the top of a small hillock with 565 steps leading to it. The steps are not steep except a small stretch. There are two ways to the temple, one paved with stones and another just a mud path. People use the paved steps for ascending and the mud path for descending. The descending path is not as steep as the ascending path. So if there is no crowd, you can use the descending path for climbing up. After climbing a few steps, you will come across the junction where both the paths diverge. On the path for descending there is a rock structure called "oru kal mantapa" which is a rock cut Siva cave temple built at the time Mahendravarman I AD 610 - 640. It is maintained by the Department of Archeology. Beware of monkeys in the hill which are roughish. It is advisable to go with a large enough stick to keep them at bay and do not carry anything on hands. You have to leave the footwear at the base. Walking barefoot on the stone-paved steps under hot sun and over scorching stones will be an inconvenice. But all agonies will disappear when you stand before the serene, divine, graceful Lord Vedagirishwarar.
