Avudayar Temple Pictures - Virtual Tour of Avudayar Temple at Aranthangi in Tamil Nadu

Dedicated to Shiva, AvudayarTemple is located at Aranthangi in the Pudukkottai District of Tamil Nadu. Tamil Nadu Tourism has created a virtual tour of the temple. You can view high quality pictures of AvudayarTemple in 360 degrees.
A unique aspect of the temple is that there is no murti worshipped in the temple. There is only a pedestal of Shivling in the Sanctum Sanctorum. This is based on the core Hindu teaching that murti worship is the first step in the path of self realization. Once ignorance is removed, the devotee drops the murti and moves into the next step of realization.
