The ancient temple of Arunachaleshwarar stands at the foot of the holy mountain Arunachal, considered to be the embodiment of Shiva. This mountain is considered older than the Himalayas.
The temple is considered one of the mystical and largest temples of India. It is the home of Shiva incarnated in Lingam Fire - Arunachaleshwar Lingam. It is one of the greatest Shiva temples in India. Its area is about 10 hectares. The time of its construction is uncertain, and its present buildings were built in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
There is a legend that says that it was on the site of the mountain and the temple Shiva turned into a column of fire (Shiva-Langam). It was impossible to look at this column because of the blinding fire. Shiva uttered: "Here is the only place where I took this form for the sake of those who wish to worship me and attain enlightenment." Now many pilgrims come to the mountain and temple to worship and walk around the mountain barefoot.
