The Ancient Kingdom of the Cholas in South India (Panchanadikulam)
Sri Arunachala Jnanadesikar Swami Temple and Mutt (Aadheenam or monastery) in Panchanadikulam, is an ancient mutt in the district of Nagapattinam in South India in the Kailaasa Paramparagatha Sūrya Vaṃśa Sarvajnapeetha Adi Noothana Chola Samrajyam (spiritual and religious kingdom).
These mutts (Aadheenam) come under the Sri Kashi Vishwanathar temple in Thanjavur owned by His Divine Holiness Bhagavan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam.
The presiding deity of these mutts is Lord Paramaśiva.
Paramaśiva’s direct representative and heir is the Pontiff of the mutts.
The region was part of the Chola Kingdom. The Pontiffs educated, groomed and initiated the Chola Kings to rule as per the methods prescribed in the sacred scriptures.
The kings were the regents who administered the people while the Pontiffs were the owners.
Reign of The Chola Kingdom Circa 1000 CE
