Geographic Location

Tiruchengode is the largest city in the Namakkal district of the State of tamilnadu in Southern India.


In ancient days, Tiruchengode was known as Thirukodimaadachenkundrur – one of the historic places in Tamil Nadu. It is world-famous for the ancient hilltop Ardhanreeshwarar temple, housing the presiding deity of Ardhanreeshwara also called Umaiorubagan - the unique deity having the half-male and half-female form signifying the union of Paramashiva's divine Consort unto Him in Oneness after her austere penance for the same. Tiruchengode is a destination for worldwide pilgrims and has been mentioned in the Tamil work Silapathikaram as 'Neduvelkundru' and is celebrated in the hymns of Saivite saints called Nayanmars in the pre-historic era. The equally famous Chenkottu Velavar Temple, dedicated to Lord Murugan, is situated on the same hill.


The modern day Tiruchengode was formed on 22 November and that day is celebrated as 'Tiruchengode day'.


in the year 2001, in a village called Avathipalayam (in Tiruchengode) on the banks of the sacred river Kaveri in Tamil Nadu, South India, at‘Bhavani Sangamam’, the confluence of the three sacred rivers - Kaveri, Bhavani and Amirtha, a new land was donated to The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism. Pongianna Gounder, a subject of Thondaimandalam region and a devotee of the 232nd Pontiff, approached the 232nd Pontiff wanting to donate his own land. Pongianna Gounder wanted the land to serve directly under the Kingdom of Thondaimandalam. The land held special significance in the revival of Hinduism and KAILASA by The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism which He declared in the year 2000 internationally and publicly. The land bore three sacred things 1) the jīvā samādhi (final resting place of mortal remains) of an earlier Pontiff of the Thondaimandalam Aadheenam lineage 2) the moola linga - the energised Shiva linga that is instilled with and carries the Blueprint of this KAILASA ecosystem 3) the dilapidated pillared stone structure {mandapam} that was part of the Tiruchengode Aadheenam temple monastery complex that existed here aeons ago on the banks of the sacred river Kaveri. Hindu temples are often located on the banks of sacred rivers forming a holistic ecosystem for the people of the region.

The 232nd Pontiff guided Pongianna Gounder to The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism to donate the land to Him. Pongianna Gounder approached The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism who accepted the land. Pongianna Gounder most joyfully handed this historic land over to The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism for the revival of KAILASA and Hinduism. The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism revived and established here, the Kailasa Paramparagatha Tiruchengode Sarvajnapeetham - which is a part of the Thondaimandalam Kingdom.

On 14 April 2001, a monastery was inaugurated in this very land by The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism.

The pictures below show the 232nd Pontiff with The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism on the land as well as the pre-inaugural ceremony of the monastery in March 2001. It was during this period, The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism assumed responsibility as the successor to the Kailasa Paramparagatha Kanchee Kailasa Sarvajnapeetham (Thondaimandala Aadheenam) as declared by the 230th Pontiff when The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism was 10 years old. The 232nd Pontiff held the seat as His predecessor and when He attained 21 years of age, the 232nd Pontiff nominated Him to His responsibility as the 233rd Pontiff during this pre-inaugural ceremony.:

The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism declared to the subjects of the region, the ceremonious inauguration of the new temple-monastery complex with its intended purpose to serve the people belonging to the region.


The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism named the first structure He built here as "Ramakrishna Dhyanapeetham", commemorating Sri Ramakrishna Mission, which HE declared is the mother's lap for Hinduism. HE Himself had served in The Ramakrishna Mission in Chennai, Kanchipuram and Kolkata, as a pivotal volunteer and monastic member from 1995 - 1999 (from the age of 17 to 21, amidst periods of spiritual wandering inbetween). Besides the main temple and monastery structures, The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism inaugurated some of the other important pillars of KAILASA which are: the Gomandir - temple for protecting and worshipping the sacred cows - divine beings, an annalaya - food temple for serving 24 hours free satvic food to the citizens and visitors of Tiruchengode, a safe haven for running the Nithyananda Gurukul - the traditional education system of KAILASA, and paved the way for KAILASA to function from this region in its fullest glory over the years to follow.

the Sacred Kaveri River, the svayambhu Linga, the Kāśi Liṅga and the Bilva tree


The sacred Kaveri river

The sacred Kaveri river on whose banks the new territory is located is called the Ganga (river in North India) of the South. The sacred river Ganga, the lifeline of millions of people, originates in North India and is worshipped most fervently along its entire course. The river Ganga takes a U-turn against its own current at Kashi (also called Varanasi, the spiritual capital city of India), just to worship Kashi Vishwanatha – the Śiva Liṅga at the Kashi Vishwanath temple at that location. Similarly, the sacred Kaveri takes a U-turn against her own current exactly at this spot where this monastery is located.


The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism therefore installed a second Śiva Liṅga (other than the main moola Linga in the main sanctum) that carries the same energy as the Śiva Linga in the Kashi Vishwanath temple in Kashi (also called Varanasi). This monastery is therefore a heritage site equal to Varanasi (spiritual capital city of India) in its potential to liberate people. This second Śiva Linga here, consecrated by The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism carries the same energy to liberate people in this birth.


One day, The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism was seated in meditation on a rock inside the sacred river Kaveri, when He beheld a Vision (behind closed eyes) of a lady coming towards Him, garlanding Him and worshipping Him. The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism opened His eyes to find a flower garland around Him, and bilva leaves showered on His head. Bilva is the leaf that is sacred to Lord Paramaśiva (Primordial Hindu Divinity).

The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism took the bilva leaves and placed it on the ground in a certain location at the Aadheenam, from where grew this Bilva tree. This bilva tree stands today as a sacred spot in this heritage site for people to meditate and manifest what they want in life.
