The demand for these "city" things takes away all the sheen and glory from the places in the hills. Nary a quiet spot left. Pls don't mind, just an old man ranting.
Thank you for penning down this beautiful piece sir. These places almost feel like a link between man and god!

"Getting away from City" unfortunately translates to "Taking the city with me" these days.

Very well written. The place looks so beautiful. I did not know this is the place where Mitra Varuna gave birth to Agastya and Vaishta. I knew the story, but was not aware this is where it happened.

Excellent write up. As I read through this, I kept relating this to our recent trip to Rameshwaram. The theerthas there are numbered and you go to each in a structured way. Part of me now thinks that this is how a theertha yatra should be. If you are worthy of it, the almighty will let you find the threetha

Beautifully written, wonderful articulation, rich and deep in history. A gift of story telling also thrown in. I can almost imagine your voice telling this with a rich cadence.

Reminds me of my Uncle who used to tell us all stories and we used to sit around him listening to his travels and adventures.

Thank you for this! Transported me to a different time and place. Would love to visit the Teertha's once lockdown eases and life returns to a semblance of normalcy!
