Recently we've completed the construction of a new bell tower along San Marga. If you have ever walked down San Marga from the Rudraksha Forest, you might recall that just after Muruga Hill there is a small wooden archway with a bronze bell attached. From afar the bell can be heard as pilgrims ring it, heralding their entrance into the Shivaloka while they move ever closer to their destination of Iraivan Temple. As a gift to the aadheenam, Umut (the mason who built Iraivan Temple's lava rock wall), volunteered to create a new archway from concrete and stone. A larger and more ornate bell would then be added. After a little over a month of work, the new bell was installed a rung loudly, echoing across San Marga. Next time you visit these sacred grounds, remember to strike this bell for all the three worlds to hear. Aum Namah Sivaya.
