Ancient Shiva Temples & the 79° longitude –
Can you guess what’s common between these prominent temples:
3. Ekambaranatha- Kanchi,
6. Chidambaram Nataraja,
If your answer is, “All are Shiva temples”, you are partially correct. What makes these special is the Longitude at which these temples are located.
“They all are located on 79° longitudes.”
What is surprising is how the architects of these temples, which are located hundreds of kilometers away from each other, came up with these precise locations without GPS.
1. Kedarnath 79.0669°
2. Kalahashti 79.7037°
3. Ekambaranatha- Kanchi 79.7036°
4. Thiruvanamalai 79.0747°
5. Thiruvanaikaval 78.7108
6. Chidambaram Nataraja 79.6954°
7. Rameshwaram 79.3129°
8. Kaleshwaram 79.9067°
See the map …
All the temples are in a straight line. from “Kedarnath to Rameswaram.”
These temples were built, 4000 years ago.
So, how were these temples so accurately established? God Only Knows.
There is a distance of 2383 km between Kedarnath and Rameswaram.
All these temples represent the expression of 5 elements, the Panch Tatva (FIVE Elements), i.e., Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space.
*The Shimmer lamp in Sri Kalahasti is the representation of AIR Linga.
*The Water Spring in the inner plateau of Thiruvanikka shows WATER Linga.
*The Huge Lamp on Annamalai hill shows that Represent FIRE Linga.
*The Swayambhu Linga of the Sands at Kanchipuram shows EARTH Linga.
*The Incorporeal (NIRAKAR) state of Chidambaram is representing the Heavens(AKASH) element of God.
We should be proud of our Ancient Knowledge and Technology. It is believed that it is not the only 5 temples but many lie in this line called the “SHIVA-SHAKTI AKSH REKHA.”
Amazingly, MAHAKAL has a relationship with all the Jyotirlingam across the Country.
The Distance of Jyotirlingams frm Ujjain is:
* Ujjain to Somnath- 777 kms
* Ujjain to Omkareshwar- 111+ km
* Ujjain to Bhimashankar- 666 km
* Ujjain to Kashi Vishwanath- 888 km
* Ujjain to Mallikarjun- 888 kms
* Ujjain to Kedarnath- 1111 kms
* Ujjain to Tryambakeshwar-555 km
* Ujjain to Badyanath- 1399 kms
* Ujjain to Rameswaram- 1999 km
“Ujjain is considered to be the center of the Earth.” There was nothing in Hinduism without any reason.
As a center for 1000’s years in Sanatan Dharma, a man-made instrument for calculating the sun and astrology in Ujjain was built about 2050 years ago.
And, when the imaginary line on Earth was created by British scientists about 100 years ago, the central part of it was Ujjain.
Even today, scientists come to Ujjain to know about the sun and space.
