Tharamangalam Kailasanathar Temple

Tharamangalam temple

Tharamangalam temple Entrance
A Siva temple, perhaps the most beautiful of its kind in Salem District. Parts of it existed as early as the tenth century: as it stands now, it is the product of the Gatti Mudhali dynasty of the seventeenth century. Reconstruction and elaboration of the old temple was begun by Mummudi, continued by Siyazhi, and was brought near completion by Vanangamudi.
This west facing temple is enclosed by a massive stone wall measuring 306' by 164' reportedly built in the thirteenth century. The main entrance tower ( 5 storeys 90'high) is conceived as a chariot on wheels, drawn by elephants and horses. The huge entrance doors, made of vengai ( pterocarpus marsupium) wood, are studied with untrusting iron knobs each of a different pattern. Their panels are decorated with wooden carvings depicting incarnations of Vishnu.
The entrance to the inner sanctum is through a portico supported by six sumptuously carved stone pillars. The scenes of tiger hunting by princes seated on horses and accompanied by footmen are depicted very realistically and with great sensitivity. A pillar of yazhi ( a mythical animal combining features of the lion and the elephant) is so ingeniously carved that a stone ball ( 4 ' diameter) in its mouth can be freely rolled but cannot be rolled out. The wooden doors of the portico are adorned with twenty four panels of excellent carving, some of which have been vandalized. The motifs for these carvings are drawn from the divine exploits of Siva and scenes from the daily lives of ordinary people.
The great hall is a fine gallery of sculptures of men, women, and Gods among which the sculpture of the voluptuous rishi pathini ( sages wife) is notable .
The ceiling is supported by rows of stone pillars from whose capitals hang elegant chains carved out of solid stone. The ceiling in front of the main shrine is covered by a block of stone seven feet in diameter carved in the shape of an inverted open lotus with parrots. This carving is surrounded by the Gatti Mudhali insignia. The outer walls of the inner most sanctum are covered with inscriptions.
Every year on February 21, and the consequent 3 days, a great solar and architectural wonder can be seen in the temple. During sunset, the rays of the sun travel down through the front Gopura at the temple's entrance gate and through a small hole in the and travels across the front plane to fall directly onto the statue of Siva. The movement of the sun beam can be witnessed as it progresses across the front of the temple, making the lingam appear to glow.
Several gigantic monolithic pillars of pink granite carved, polished, and ready for erection in the proposed Thousand Pillar Hall lie outside the temple. More are said to be under the ground. Before this project could be completed, Vanangamudi was killed in 1667, leaving the foreground of the temple littered with ruins of a noble dream.
A temple tank (about (180' 180') is one of the finest of its kind in South India. Thirty Six Nandhi Sculptures (2' high) of black stone sit at intervals on top of the parapet wall whose inside holds 365 lamp niches. One for every day of the year. Only once in 1873 the pool was cleaned by the Salem Local Fund Board.

Overview of the great MODERn theatres.....

.

Modern Theaters Ltd was a motion picture movie studio in Salem, Tamil Nadu, India, started by Thiruchengodu Ramalingam Sundaram in 1935. The studio produced over more than 150 movies until 1982 in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Hindi, Sinhalese and even English of which Tamil movies were the majority.

In the early 1930s, T. R. Sundaram entered the world of Tamil cinema as a partner of a Salem-based film company, Angel Films. He was involved in productions such as Draupadi Vastrapaharanam (1934), Dhruva (1935) and Nalla Thangal (1935). Then he decided to start his own company, Modern Theatres Limited. He realized that to make film making a business, it had to be organized and managed like a business enterprise. He also planned a schedule of producing films on a tight budget (two or three a year), so that the market and consumers were regularly and continually supplied with his products.

"கடலாக இருந்து நிலப்பகுதியாக மாறிய சேலம் மாவட்டம்'

First Published : 27 Dec 2011 10:17:01 AM IST

Last Updated :

ஓமலூர், டிச. 26: கடல் பகுதியாக இருந்து பின்னர் நிலப்பகுதியாக சேலம் மாவட்டம் மாறியதாக பெரியார் பல்கலைக்கழக துணைவேந்தர் கே.முத்துச்செழியன் தெரிவித்தார்.

÷பெரியார் பல்கலைக்கழக புவி அமைப்பியல் துறை சார்பில் தென்னிந்திய நில அமைப்பியல் குறித்து சர்வதேச பயிலரங்கம் திங்கள்கிழமை நடைபெற்றது. பயிலரங்கை தொடங்கி வைத்து பெரியார் பல்கலைக்கழக துணைவேந்தர் கே.முத்துச்செழியன் பேசியது:

பூமியின் நிலப்பரப்பு கடந்த காலங்களில் பல்வேறு நிலைக்கு உட்படுத்தப்பட்டு இருக்கிறது. இவற்றில் உயிர்களின் பரிணாம வளர்ச்சி, கனிமவளம், காலநிலை வேறுபாடு போன்றவையும் அடங்கும். புதிய கண்டங்கள் உருவாதல், உடைதல் போன்ற நிகழ்வுகள் நடைபெற்றுள்ளது. கடந்த 2 ஆயிரம் மில்லியன் ஆண்டுகளுக்கு முன்பு சேலம் மாவட்டத்தின் தற்போதைய பகுதி முழுக்க முழுக்க கடலாக இருந்துள்ளது. சிறிது சிறிதாக கண்டங்கள் உடைந்து உருமாறியதில் பிறகு நிலப்பகுதி தோன்ற ஆரம்பித்துள்ளது.

கோண்டுவானா என்ற மிகப்பெரிய கண்டம் உடைந்ததாலேயே இந்திய துணைக்கண்டம் தோன்றியுள்ளது. இந்த வரலாற்றுக்கு முக்கிய சான்றாக மோயார்-சேலம் ஆத்தூர் புவி நகர்வு பகுதி, பாலக்காடு-காவேரி ஒட்டுப்பகுதி மிகப்பெரிய அறிவியல் சான்றாக அமைந்துள்ளது.

÷பல கோடி ஆண்டுகளுக்கு முன்பு சேலத்தின் புவியமைப்பு எவ்வாறு இருந்தது என்பது தற்போதுள்ள கனிமங்கள் வாயிலாக தெரியவருகிறது.

அண்டார்டிகாவில் உள்ள கனிமங்களின் தன்மையோடு சேலம் மாவட்டத்தில் கண்டெடுக்கப்பட்டுள்ள கனிமங்கள் ஒத்துப்போகின்றன. பூமியின் அடித்தட்டுகள் ஒன்று மற்றொன்றுடன் உராய்ந்து நகர்வதால் உருவான மடிப்பு மலைகள், கனிம வளங்கள் குறித்த விரிவான ஆய்வின் மூலம் பல புதிய தகவல்கள் வெளிவரும் என எதிர்பார்க்கப்படுகிறது என்றார்.

புவி அமைப்பியல் துறைத் தலைவர் எஸ்.அன்பழகன், ஜப்பான் பல்கலைக்கழக பேராசிரியர்கள் சுனாகா, ஷெட்டி, சந்தோஷ் உள்ளிட்ட பலர் கலந்துகொண்டனர். சர்வதேச பயிலரங்கில் ஜப்பான் பல்கலைக்கழக மாணவர்களும் பங்கேற்றனர்.
