Sivaganga District is one of the prime divisions of the state of Tamil Nadu in India. It is fringed by Pudukkottai district on northeast, Ramanathapuram district on southeast and Virudhunagar district on southwest. The region has gained numerous accolades as a travel destination and is thronged by thousands of holidaymakers every year. During their trip to Sivaganga District, visitors get spellbound with the architectural elegance of the place and the sanctity of its temples.
The popular temples in the district include the Pillaiyarpatti Temple. This 1600-year old temple is a rock-carved sanctuary situated on the Karaikudi-Madurai Road. The temple has an idol of Karpaga Vinayaka and a stone carved “Siva Linga” (Lord Shiva’s genital). At this temple, the devotees can see 14 stone inscriptions, belonging to the period from 500 AD to 1284 AD. Another revered shrine is the Kaleeswarar Temple, which is located in Kalayarkoil. The massive building of the temple is enclosed by a 18-feet high wall.
Other holy Sivaganga District attractions include the Kandadevi Temple that is located in the hamlet of Kandadevi. The temple was built over three centuries ago and is still owned by the successors of Sivagangai Raja. The shrine celebrates the festival of ‘Aanni Urchavam’ with great enthusiasm every year in June.
The Thirukoshtiyur Temple, Nagarasivan Temple and Idaikattur Church are some of the other shrines which travellers can visit during their sojourn in Sivaganga District. Apart from visiting religious places, tourists can explore the Vettangudi Bird Sanctuary where they can spot a variety of indigenous as well as migratory birds.
