This world is ruled by five basic elements that are Water, Fire, Space, Wind and Earth. We can’t do anything without anyone this elements. Where Lord Shiva is in these forms is called Panchabootha Sthalangal. This is one of the most revered temples to Shiva; it is one of the Panchabhoota Stalams signifying the 5 elements of Wind (Kalahasti), Water (Tiruvannaikaval), Fire(Tiruvannamalai), Earth(Kanchipuram) and Space(Chidambaram).
Sri Kalahasti :It is one of the important ancient Shiva Kshetras or Shiva Temples. It is fairly close to the famous hill temple of Lord Venkateshwara Tirupati. This is where the popular textile painting art called Kalamkari originated. Brahma, the Hindu God of creation, is said to have worshipped Lord Shiva and bathed in the Swarnamukhi river to get rid of “Sisuhathya patakam” the sin of killing children. It is one of the panchabhootha sthalam – representing one of the five basic elements – Vayu Sthalam or Air Linga. There is a lamp burning inside the inner sanctum that constantly flickers despite the lack of air inside. The sanctum has no windows, and the lamp flames keep moving despite no air movement. The Linga is white and is considered Swayambhu or self-manifested.
Thiruvanaikaval is a famous Shiva temple in Tiruchirapalli. Thiruvanaikal is one of the five major Panchabhootha temple / Sthalams representing one of the five great elements. This temple represents the element of water. Jambukeswara is depicted sitting under a jambu tree, which grows over a small stream that engulfs the deity during the rainy season. The massive outer wall, known as the Vibudhi Prakara, stretches over a mile long and is two feet thick and over 25 feet in height. Legend has it that the wall was built by Shiva along with the laborers. The Sannidhi of the Goddess Akilandeshwari and the Sannidhi of Prasanna Vinayaka are in the shape of the pranava manthra called “Aum”. It is believed that people who go round the Sannidhi, which is in the shape of “Aum” 12 times and for one full mandala, 48 days will get the blessings of the Goddess Akilandeshwari and lead a good, healthy and wealthy life. It is believed that the Amman in the temple was very angry and hence during one of Adi Sankara’s visit he installed the Prasanna Ganapathy Idol right opposite Her Sannidhi and thereafter her anger subsided.
Thiruvannamalai is home to the Annamalaiyar Temple. Thiruvannamalai has long been associated with many yogis and Siddhars.
