Reading Prof. A.V. Narasimha Murthy’s article about the magnificent Brihadeeswara temple at Thanjavur in Star of Mysore dated Apr.27, my memory went back to my native place (Thanjavur) where I stayed for 24 years. After marriage I came to Mysuru.
While I was there I used to go to the above temple every Thursday evening and other festival days. The walkable distance is only 10 minutes.
I wish to state here what everyone should see while visiting that temple. There are a series of very small holes in the stone behind the Sannidhi of Sri Subramanya Swamy. In that hole you can put a very small needle or Agarbathi stick. Even now I go to Thanjavur to have darshan of Lord Brihadeeswara and Prahannayaki Devi besides visiting other temples.
