Located 85 kilometers away from Vellore in northern Tamil Nadu, Tiruvannamalai seems like a quiet and non-descript town like many other and yet it is a hidden gem. It is an important place for the devotees of Lord Shiva as he is revered as Arunachaleswara, an aspect of fire.
Mount Arunachal, an 800 meter high boulder strewn hill stands tall above the town keeping an eye over its residents. The area’s reputation for its strong spiritual energies has engendered numerous ashrams, and attracts a number of religious-minded travelers. Around the cluster of Ashrams, you will find several affable cafes and accommodation options. Indian Holiday offers you a tour package to Tiruvannamalai. Scroll down
