History of Mayandi Swamigal





At the initiative of Arulmiku Soottukkole Mayandi Swamigal, Arulmigu Dhandapani Temple was built by Irulappakkonar around 1910. The temple was only a temporary structure, hence Arulmiku Mayandi Swamigal has left a note that the temporay temple structure has to be replaced in due course by a granite structure. .

Mayandi Swamigal was born in 1858 in Kattikuklam, a village about 40 km from Madurai on the route to Rameswaram. He was born due to the boon granted by Maha Siddha Purushar Soottukkole Ramalinga Swamigal to his parents Pitchai Velar and Kooththayi Ammal. Even as a child he revealed divine qualities; many times snakes used to roll over his body and spread their hoods over his head. As any other child he also went to school and helped his parents in making earthen pots. He read the writings of siddha purushas, available in the palm leaves in his house, and through constant japam and meditaton he attained Ashta Siddhis. He also visited Madurai Meenakshi Temple many times.  ..read more..
