Kumbakonam Temples

During the last month I had an opportunity to have Dharshan of some temples in Kumbakonam in Tamil Nadu.

        I reached Kumbakonam by  9.30 AM from Trichy. There was some function to attend in trichy so I took a long route to kumbakonam  via trichy.   The pligrim to Kumbakonam started with my loosing the purse at the Bus from trichy . I was saved by constant companion of God as it was contained with few rupees and no bank cards. The money was safely in my suitcase and  no big casuality and pilgrim with donation to needy

     I took a hotel room  and booked one tourist car to visit temples. By 10 30 Am the journey started.

Kumbakonam visit was a one day only. I requested the the driver take me Navagraha  temples and And in temple i will take my owntime and there must not be any urgency. The driver informed me that the temple will be closed by 1 PM and reopen by 4 Pm upto 8,30 pm.

KURUSHETRA

I  visited Kurushetra   recently about 4 days ago. The visit was not a planned one but on  instant decision. I had been to Kurushetra some 10 years before and that was a spelbound one With that mind I readily accepted to go that holy place.

 we started from Gurgaon  7 .30 am.By. relaxing on the way for about an hour we reached Kurushetra by 12. 30 hrs

   our first stop was BRAHMA KUND  this was  about 1.5 KM long and around 1 km wide. This  made was a magnificient tank of olden years and it is a holy one . This present intellectuals who always find way to undermine the  Hindus has a made a plan as if they are glorifing the values of hindus  about 10 years back spilt the tank into half and constucted  a road of in the middle and made a park installed the GITA UPADESH Statue  and built 3 temples in it and fooled the people saying that part of MAHA BHARAT battle was enacted here and draupathi washed her hair here after revenge  etc etc .  Height of it they built a toilet and it is send down in the holy pond thus make the tank became waste management place. I shed tears. i have no words to express my anger.

  Actually the battle ground is 6 KM away from here. We went to battle ground area some decades before it was such a holy place we revered . Now it is a ordinary temple No feeling of pious occurs They have spoilled entire place as a play ground.

  I sincerely forget this place Let the old pious feeling may prevail
