“Considering the location, its a very good hotel and good value for money. The rooms are very spacious and the toilets are relatively clean. The hotel ambiance was very good with lot of greenery. They have a few designs in the lawn. I like the way they designed the Resort type rooms.
It has 2 rooms(kinda like a house). Small hall and big room. and if you are going with a car driver, you can think of utilizing this type of rooms where in he can stay in the hall(its got a bed also) and your family can stay in the big room. Toilets are accessible for both without disturbing each others privacy. Big room has a door as well. ”

“The hotel has a cottage type look which we never visited anywhere before. Very close to Vaitheeswaran temple. The food was excellent with moderately priced. My kid enjoyed the garden particularly the slide after the tough mundane time. I would want people to visit this hotel at least once in their life time. With lot of space and greenery, it was indeed a very pleasant stay. And that too with makemytrip Rs. 500 discount was like a cherry on the cake.”

- Ms. Preeti Kapil

Vaitheeswaran Koil – what the Legend says…

Standard

The modern world, with thousands of scientific breakthroughs and millions of inventions, has increased the life span and has mitigated the pains and sufferings of us, the humans. Yet, this process of healing and curing has no end. Ever changing environment and evolving lifestyle unearth new illness everyday and science invents medicines to counter them the next day. A never ending cat and mouse game that always has medicines in the present for the illness of the past and medicines in the future for the illness of the present. The illness vary, the humans vary, the medicines vary, but there’s one thing that all these medicines have in common: Belief.

Vaitheeswaran_KoilVaitheeswaran Koil, located at Sirgazhi-Mayiladuthurai road, is a famous temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. The temple is believed to have healing powers and that’s the reason why the deity in the temple is named as ‘Vaitheeswaran’, meaning the God of healing. Devotees offer prayers to the Lord with the belief and hope in them that God would cure the illness of them or their loved ones.

A belief  may not have a proof to substantiate it’s claim, but it gives a person the all needed conviction to trust it and bring about a positive change in the person, from within. What gives a person that conviction? His knowledge? His experience? No. It is the conviction of the world around him. The belief that Vaidheeswaran will cure all the ailments is the conviction of Hindus, transcended to people from generation and generations of their ancestors.

There are a few instances from our cultural history that map Vaitheeswaran Koil as the focal point of healing ailments. During the Ramayana period, Rama, Lakshmana and Saptarishi have worshiped in this place. It is believed that Vulture King Jatayu, who was killed by Ravana when the former tried to prevent the abduction of Sita, was buried in this place. The pond in the temple is hence called Jatayu Kundam (pot of Jatayu containing his holy ash).

Another legend says that Parvati, the consort of Shiva, asked her son, Muruga to appear with one face from his regular appearance of six faces. When he did so, she was pleased and presented him with a Vel to slay the demons. Lord Muruga overcame the asura Surapadman (a demon) and in the war but his army was severely injured. Lord Shiva came out as the healer Vaitheeswaran and cured the wounds of the soldiers, and hence the name.

The next time you pack your travel to have the darshan and blessings of Lord Vaitheeswara, remember that your devotion and hope are a few of powerful medicines you have with you to keep you happy and healthy. Well, while the deity in Vaitheeswaran Koil takes care of your health, we at Hotel Sadhabishegam will take care of your hospitality there. So, don’t worry about quality food and stay while you plan your trip.  :)

Thirukkadaiyur Temple – Legend 1 – Markendeya

Standard

Have you ever wondered why Thirukkadaiyur temple is so famous for Shastiapthapoorthi (60th birthday), Bhimaradha shanthi (70th birthday), 80th birthday (sadabishegam) and other Ayul Shanthi fire worships?

Well, one of the Legends about this temple has an answer to it.

Because Lord yama can always wait.

Because Lord yama can always wait.

No matter what the religion is or what ideology it emphasizes, there’s always a legend to it; a history that transcends generations, a belief that endures the test of time and a moral that is expertly hidden. It is this legend that sustains our culture and it is the belief that sustains spirituality in an individual.

The legend states that a sage, Maharashi Mrikandu, a rishi of Bhrigu clan (Remember Shiva Trilogy?), prayed to Lord Shiva to bless him with a son. Shiva heeded to his prayers and offered him a choice;

1. He could either have a son who’s dim-witted and would live for more than 100 years.
2. Or, he could have a son who’s extremely brilliant but would die at his age of 16.

Maharishi Mrikandu chose the latter. Quite understandably.
Seriously, what could one do with a son who is dim-witted? Throw him in a third rate engineering college?

Markandeya grew up to be a great devotee of Shiva and on the day of his destined death he continued his worship of Shiva in his aniconic form of Shivalingam. The messengers of Yama, the god of death were unable to take away his life because of his great devotion and continual worship of Shiva. Yama then came in person to take away Markandeya’s life, and sprung his noose around the young sage’s neck. By accident or fate the noose mistakenly landed around the Shivalingam, and out of it, Shiva emerged in all his fury attacking Yama for his act of aggression. After defeating Yama in battle to the point of death, Shiva then revived him, under the condition that the devout youth would live forever. Siva rescued him from death, incarnating him as Kalantaka (the ender of death).

Hence from then on, devotion to the deity here is believed to free oneself from the clutches of Yama and defeat death, ensuring long-life to the individual.

Well, while the deity in Thirukkadaiyur takes care of your longevity, we at Hotel Sadhabishegam will take care of your hospitality there. So, don’t worry about quality food and stay while you plan your trip.   :)
