Theertha Thotti – Periyakulam

Two km from the Periyakulam town, towards west on the road leads to Sothuparai Dam, comes a lonely place surrounds by gulmohar and neem trees and among them is a small mandapam and tank which is called Theertha Thotti. The tank is a natural spring and it told to be never went dry perhaps being on the south bank, close to the perennial river ‘Varaganathi’ it is considered as holy tank.
Theertha Thotti
One of an evergreen song from the Tamil Film Pithamagan, Elankathu Visuthea… was captured at this location and the tank takes a special place in it. The tank has an inner mandapam or corridor and a staircase leading down.

Theertha Thotti
We visited Periyakulam during the time monsoon was postponed so everywhere water was at least and dry and the Varaganathi River was too like a creek and stagnant. Our friend’s in Periyakulam was residing on the south bank of the river and only because of the couple we get to explore the places around and they take care of our need indeed!
Green Wall
Their home is on the Agraharam Street which is renowned for the community of Brahmins in each locality and I have seen couple of Agraharm in various places early which are very quiet and clean alike. What attracts or interest me was the home next to their, pretty and pleasing in green wall or vertical garden beautified the front.
