What are some of the unsolved mysteries of Tamil Nadu, India?
If you think you've seen everything there is to see in India, you couldn't be more wrong. India isn't called Incredible India for nothing. This wonderful land is riddled with more mysteries and astonishing things than Alice or Dorothy could ever have imagined.
Sometimes uncanny and sometimes uplifting, India is full of surprises. Every corner of this wonderland has something waiting to be unraveled, just like 5 of these selected from Tamilnadu:
1.Ram Sethu Bridge or Ramar Palam (in tamil)
The building of Rama's bridge is described in the chapter titled ‘Yuddha Kanda’ of the Ramayana, but the description is rather vague. When Rama wants to use an arrow to dry up the ocean, the ocean god says: O, excellent man! This one, named Nala, a glorious person, is the son of Vishvakarma; who was given a boon by his father and is equal to Visvakarma. Let this greatly energetic monkey build a bridge across me. I can hold that bridge.Rama Setu took 5 days to build by 10 Million Vanaras (Monkeys) under the supervision of Architects Neel and Nala. Age and Structure Rama Setu is 1.7 Million Years Old. It is believed that RAMA Setu is made of a chain of limestone shoals. It is 30 Km Long and 3 Km Wide. It Starts from Dhanushkodi tip of India’s Pamban Island and ends at Sri Lanka’s Mannar Island. Sea in these areas is very shallow.
2.Kal Garudar, Kumbakonam, Tamilnadu
Built in the Dravidian style of architecture, this temple (5th century AD).The kal garuda (stone bird) requires just four people to carry him from his shrine and as he moves ahead at each phase, it needs people in multiples of 8, 16, 32, 64 to carry the vahana, before reaching the Vahana Mantapam (hall) near the temple entrance. Here Garuda is adorned with silk dhoti, jewels and special flower garland sent by the Srirangam temple. With Tahayyar - goddess leading the procession, Kal garudar begins his 6 hour long journey at 7 pm with handsome Perumal atop the vahana.As the Kal garuda Vahaha in the procession has moved out of the temple and on the street, it now requires 128 people to carry him around. The puzzle is the weight of the stone image is the same no matter how many people carry it. Otherwise stone itself would become big or density of the stone image would be way high.And the no of persons decreases while it comes inside.
3.Sweating idol,Sikkal, Tamilnadu
The main festival celebrated is the Maha Skandha Sashti which comes in the month of Aippasi (Mid October-Mid November) and celebrates the victory of Karthikeya over the Asura. The festival is celebrated for six days, commemorating the six days of war with Soora Padman. On the fifth day of the festival Skandha receives his Vel from his mother Velnedunkanni, amidst much gaiety and colors, to vanquish the asura. This is known as the “Vel Vaangum Thiruvizha” and is the highlight of the festival. The amazing fact is that when Skandha prepares to receive his Vel, the utsavar idol of Singara Velavar breaks out into profuse sweating (The tension and the anger of a lord who awaits to kill the asura). This happens every year, even upto the present times and defies explanation. The priests continuously wipe the idol’s face with silk cloth and the sweat is sprinkled on the crowd gathered as divine theertha. People throng the streets to witness this miracle and if blessed possibly get a drop of that sweat on themselves. The sweating subsides when he returns to his sanctum, the owner of the divine Vel. On the sixth day, the soorasamhaaram takes place. Though it is not as grand and large as is celebrated at Thiruchendur, the slaying of the demon king still drives home the point ‘Evil, Beware! Guha in all his divinity will protect us’.
4.Krishna's Butter ball,Mahabalipuram.
Krishna's Butterball is a gigantic granite boulder resting on a short incline in the historical town of Mahabalipuram in Tamil Nadu, India. The boulder is approximately 6 meters high and 5 meters wide and weighs around 250 tons
5.Brihadeeswarar temple , Tamilnadu.
