All along the path there are 9 lingams. It’s believed that each lingam has its own special powers. For example the Kubera Lingam is believed to have the power to offer you a lot of wealth. Obviously this was the most crowded lingam.
We had started to Tiruvannamalai from Bangalore at about 10.00 PM. It took us a whole six hours to reach Tiruvannamalai because of the bad roads. We started walking as soon as we reached. We finished the whole round around 8.00 AM in the morning. During the trip, we encountered shops trying to sell authentic Ayurvedic medicine which cures all kinds of pain in 10 minutes, people selling medicinal soup, water, and all other eatables. There are a lot of book shops also for the book lovers. And like all other temple towns in India, there are a lot of beggars.
