Thiru Amanalingeswarar Temple

Here are some pictures of Amanalingeswarar Temple, Thirumurthy hills which we visited on 18th November 2017. The day was bright & sunny and the sky was clear blue except for some scattered white fluffy clouds. A fortnight after our visit the area experienced heavy rains resulting in flash flood in Thirumurthy falls and partial submergence of the temple. Access to the temple & falls has been temporarily closed. For detailed information about the temple please log onto the official temple website: http://www.amanalingeswarartemple.tnhrce.in/
