How I went: Arrived here from Rameswaram after visitng Thiruppulani and Nainar Koil on 30 july 2006 at 7 pm. Put up in Hotel KPS near College House and walkable distance from Meenakshi temple. Otherwise you can take a cycle rickshaw or auto to the temple. The 24 hr check out rent is Rs 150. You can also stay at College house near this place which is a little costly. I anyway have my food at college house only and a must try Jighardanda(a cold milk shake kind of thing) at place called Famous in East marret street. I immediately went to the Meenakshi Temple and did the archanai et all. First you should go to Meenakshi and then only to Shiva.

After this, I had met a driver near taxi stand of College house. His name was Murugan arranged for taking me to tiruparankundram and thirumogur for Rs.425..His cell no is 9344132725. I asked him to report at 5.30 am on 31st which he did very promptly.

How I went:

On 31st July early morning at 6 I was at tiruparangundram temple. After praying to lord ganesh, I went to the tepam (temple tank), fed the fish be very very careful as I found the steps very very slippery.. one slip and you would bang your head on the many steps and will be in deep water.. there are many small cave kind of rock cut temples. This is one of the main aru padai veedu of Lord Muruga. Finished and left for Thiru Moghur.

He is a priest here. You can refer my name as Ashok from Chennai. I did the regular pooja and also paid for doing pooja on 11 Thursdays to Chakrathalwar who is very powerful here. This is one of the 108 divya desam. The place is so very green and serene.

Thiruvadavur Shiva temple (MUST SEE DEFINITELY VISIT)

How I went:

From Alagharkoil, this place is just 4 km away and busses strart from near the temple to take you up hill to Pazhamudir cholai. This is another Aru padai Veedu of lord Muruga where he tested Avvaiyar. The Naaval fruit Tree is still there and gives fruit in a non season time. There is a small water fountain (Chunai) a little further up hill. The water is tasty here and is considered sacred.

By 1 pm on 31st my friend dropped me back at the hotel in Madurai. I had my lunch and proceeded to Tirunelveli about 2 ½ hours from here.

Do not hastеn the discussion, during the ρeгiod оf time gap, plan strategy on how you can win your ex-bօyfriend.

Relationships don't work on estimations and logic". It is likely to require some time, energy and effort, but if it is really seriously something you would like, if this really is something well worth battling for - don your power suit and get down working on it.
