HISTORY OF SRI AGATHIYAR & LOPAMUDRA TEMPLE
KALYANA THEERTHAM, TIRUNELVELI, INDIA
December 2011, Dr. K. Ravikumar from USA visited Kalyana Theertham. He was informed that there was a statue of Sri Agasthiyar on the peetam which was washed away during 1992 flood. The moment he heard, felt an unique vibration on him. He went to meditation and the divine informed him to install Sri Agasthiyar & Lopamudra vigrahams.
Immediately he shared this experience with Mr S. Santhanakrishnan who is the Sthapathy ( Temple Architect ) for Rajagopuram construction in Parashakthi temple, Michigan, USA. Without any hesitation Mr.Santhanakrishnan came forward to help to start this temple Project. He created beautiful vigrahams of Sri Agasthiyar & Lopamudra and also including the temple project design.

It is an upcoming, small, spiritually powerful and beautiful temple. To build this temple, except water every thing need to be carried to top which came out a very challenging one.
