Adhishtanams at Kalavai

Kalavai
This small town in Arcot near Vellore  on the Chennai Bangalore highway is the place of the Adhistanams of two acharyas preceding Mahaperiyava. After you cross Ranipet look for a small road to the left leading to Arani before Arcot. The road leads to Tindivanam. At about 20 kms  in between is kalavai. Take the first right turn inside kalavai after the petrol bunk there is a huge pond on the left and the Kanchi mutt is on the right IMG_0066 IMG_0063 IMG_0064 IMG_0065
