Iraivan Temple


Iraivan Temple is a punya tirtha, a sacred destination for devout pilgrims. This is an all granite, hand-carved temple sculpted in India and shipped to our island. Its design follows the 1,000-year-old Chola Empire style in every detail. Within its chambers, one find only the Supreme, whom we call God Siva. The vision of Lord Siva on San Marga that Gurudeva was blessed with in 1975 is sustained and made manifest by the daily sadhanas of the resident monastics. In 2001, Gurudeva said: “When you begin the pilgrimage to Iraivan Temple, you drop off and dissolve the karmas of the past. Then, because of the direction the temple is facing, the temple gives a new start, a new impetus for a wonderful future. It is a boon-giving temple, a gift-giving temple, a life-giving temple, a wish-fulfilling temple.”
