The temple was shut, and when we investigated, we discovered the temple would be open only after the funeral was done with[the death we saw down the road]… Knowing we had nearly an hour, we took a trip to another temple nearby –Thirumalpadi…
We returned once the priest gave us the Green signal and spent some time wandering the interiors of the temple in Seeyamangalam. On one of the pillars inside, we were shown Shiva in the Ananda Thandava posture, which is one of the early interpretations. On the other side was a carving of Shiva Parvathi on Rishaba[bull]. The priest told us we were free to take photographs inside…
A few steps from the main temple is a small temple atop
a rock decidated to Lord Muruga. There were steps carved out of the
rock, going 3/4th of the way. We decided to give it a pass after attempting the 1st few steps… The temple premises was huge, opening out to empty land and the blue skies.
After an hour or so, as we walked towards the car, we wondered what other stories were hidden within these walls.
