    Default Sri Jalakandeswarar temple

    Sri Jalakandeswarar temple

    Sri Jalakandeswarar Temple, Fort, Vellore-632 001. Vellore district.

    The temple is built at the centre of a tank. There is a beautiful water fencing (Agazhi)
    around the temple appearing as a garland. The circumference of this Agazhi is 8000 feet. The sculpture in the wedding hall of the temple has two faces in a single body, an elephant and the bull.

    Water for the abishek of the Lord is drawn from well which is very old. This is the Ganga Gouri holy theertham. The well has a natural spring in itself and not dug.

    The Revolving Lamp:

    There is an earthern lamp on the Balipeeta behind the Adhikara Nandhi (the bull vehicle of Lord Shiva) which would revolve if some people place their hands on it as they wish it. But it doesn’t revolve in all the cases and till today nobody knows the reason. Those facing some troubles caused by lizards falling on them worship the Golden and Silver Lizards in the temple. On the Kanu Festival or Mattu Pongal day (January), special abisheks are performed to Adhikara Nandhi. The wedding hall or the Kalyana Mandapam of the temple is as beautiful as the 1000 pillared Mandap in Madurai Meenakshisundareswarar temple.

    Navashakti Jyothi:

    A torch called Navasakthi Jyothi is in front of the Goddess – Amman shrine. It never extinguishes and round in shape. The main flame (jyothi) is at the centre and eight around it. A great lamp above the jyothi has a diameter of 27 inches representing the 27 stars starting from Ashwini to Revathi. This is called Star Deepa – Nakshatra Deepa.
