Paruvadhamalai near Thiruvannamalai
Just like in Thiruvannamalai, at Parvatha Malai also, 'GIRIVALAM' (trekking the path around the hill) is said to be virtuous and beneficial and devotees from different corners throng to undertake 'GIRIVALAM' on full moon day every month of the year. Especially the first day of Tamil month 'MARGAZHI' is famous and important. Thousands of devotees visit Parvatha Malai for this 'Special GIRIVALAM' that particular day and are blessed by the grace of Lord Malligarjun and Lordess Brahmarambika. The 'GIRIVALAM' path of Parvatha Malai is 25 kms. and it takes about 8 hours to complete, while Thiruvannamalai GIRIVALAM path is 14 kms and it takes about 4 hours to cover.
The temple has no doors or compound wall and also no 'priests' to perform 'pujas'. The visiting devotees themselves can perform 'pujas', do 'abisheham' and 'arathanas' like in most of the North Indian temples. 'Nishta' is reached in no time when one performs 'meditation' at the top of the hill (that is the power of the 'vibration' of the hill and the presiding deities). Few devotees have experienced 'Miracles' in the hill and the temple. One has to personally experience to believe them. In many cases such 'miracles' have been encountered by few fortunate devotees when they stay overnight in the hill.
