Trip Planner: Asia / India / Tamil Nadu / Tiruvannamalai District / Tiruvannamalai / Girivalam, Arunachaleswarar Temple
Take part in the grueling ritual of Girivalam, Arunachaleswarar Temple. Held every full moon, the ceremony involves worshippers' circumambulating the holy mountain--a barefoot journey of at least 14 km (8.7 mi)--visiting the eight lingams along the way. Each of the lingams represents certain benefits, such as long life, wealth, and peace of mind. If the idea of this long, difficult journey at the height of day proves too intimidating, you can traverse the trail after dark, with sodium lamps lighting the way. Drinking water is available along the route. To visit Girivalam, Arunachaleswarar Temple on your trip to Tiruvannamalai, use our Tiruvannamalai road trip app .

One of the most auspicious temple. Those who worshipping Siva must visit this temple and experience the divine power. Temple open in morning at 5 AM to 12.30 PM, evening 3.30 PM to 9.30 PM. Well connected by road from Chennai, 194 KM. மிக சிறந்த சிவன் கோவில். மன அமைதி பெற செல்ல வேண்டிய கோவில். ஆன்மீக அன்பர்கள் ஒருமுரையவது செல்ல வேண்டிய கோவில்.
