The mystery of 8 ancient Shiva temples built in a straight line?

8 ancient Shiva temples built in a straight line

Hinduism is not only a religion it’s a way of life which gives you the freedom to pray and worship your Isht Dev (favourite god).  It could be Lord Ganesh, Shiva, Rama, Krishna, Laxmi or any other. And India was already a leader and excelled in the fields of geography, science, astronomy, political science, warfare, architecture and medicine. One must have come across the names of Bhaskara, Shushruta, Aryabata, Chankaya and many others from ancient India who excelled in different fields ranging from astronomy, mathematics, surgery and governance.

Similarly construction of temples in ancient India was an art, science and much more. These temples were built thousands of years ago when there were no modern instruments or technology. The temples were built according to the yogic sciences, and some are placed in a certain geographic alignment with each other, and here almost on the same longitude as the other temples.

In ancient India, temples were basically recharging centers where devotees could go, sit and relax alone in peace or meditate. Today temples have become a place where one goes to worship or pray to the lord. As one of the three main gods in the Hindu pantheon, there are temples dedicated to his worship. The most prominent of these are the Jyotirlinga temples. What is common between all these eight prominent temples? Your answer is they all are Shiva temples. You are only partially correct. It is actually the longitude in which these temples are located. They all are located in 79° longitudes. What is surprising and a mystery is that how the architects of these temples many hundreds of kilometers apart come up with these precise locations without GPS or any such modern device.

Kedarnath 79.0669°

Kalahashti 79.7037°

Ekambaranatha- Kanchi 79.7036°

Thiruvanamalai 79.0747°

Thiruvanaikaval 78.7108

Chidambaram Nataraja 79.6954°

Rameshwaram 79.3129°

Kaleshwaram N-India 79.9067°

You will be surprised to know that the Shiva temples in India were built in a straight line from Kedarnath in the far north to Rameswaram in the south. Wonder what science and technology our ancestors developed to do this, which we are unable to understand till today? The Kedarnath of Uttarakhand, the Kaleshwaram of Telangana, Kalahasti of Andhra Pradesh, Akhaseshwar of Tamil Nadu, Chidambaram and finally the Rameswaram temples have been built in the geographical straight line of or nearer to that of 79° E 41 ‘54 “Longitude.

All these temples represent the five elements of nature, which we call the Panch Tatwa (Five elements) in colloquial language. Panch Tatwa that is - earth, water, fire, air and space. These are represented by these five Shiva Lingas on the basis of the five elements. Water is represented at Thiruvnanakwal Temple. The representation of the fire is in Thiruvannamalai. The air is represented in Kalahasti. The earth is represented in Kanchipuram. The space or the sky is represented at Chidambaram Temple. These five temples represent the wonderful combination of Vastu-Vigyan-Veda.

These five temples were built according to Yogic Science, and have been placed in a certain geographical alignment with each other. There is certainly some science that affects the human body. These temples were constructed about four thousand years ago when there was no satellite technology available to measure the latitude and longitude of those places. How were these five temples, so accurately placed and built?

How people have constructed temples separated by thousands of miles (2383 km between Kedarnath and Rameswaram) on almost same longitude remains a mystery. There is nothing in Hinduism without any reason or purpose.  Ujjain is considered to be the centre of the Earth. As a centre for thousands of years in Sanatan Dharma, a man-made instrument for calculating the sun and astrology in Ujjain has also been created about two thousand and fifty years ago.  And when the imaginary line on Earth, Imaginary was created by the British scientist about 100 years ago, the central part of it was Ujjain. Even today, scientists come to Ujjain to know about the sun and space.

Here we reproduce an article by Gajanan Astrology which tells us about the eight ancient temples that fall in a straight line. It can’t be a coincidence. It was designed and constructed that way with a purpose without the help of any modern technology. How did the ancient builders manage to do it? Why did they build it that way? Did they want to indicate something important? It’s a mystery.

Shiva is the eternal truth……Shiva is life…. Shiva is death……Har Har Mahadev.

We hear every day that science is progressing a lot day by day in the twenty first century. But do you know that India was already a world leader and excelled in the fields of geography and science.

You might be surprised to know that the Shiva temples in India are built on the same latitude i.e. they will fall on same line if we use a ruler to locate them.

These eight temples are:

Kedarnath           – Kedarnath Temple (30.7352° N, 79.0669)

Kaleshwaram      – Kaleshwara Mukteeshwara swamy Temple (18.8110, 79.9067)

Srikalahati           – Srikalahasti Temple (13.749802, 79.698410)

Kanchipuram      – Ekambareswarar Temple (12.847604, 79.699798)

Thiruvanaikaval – Jambukeswara Temple (10.853383, 78.705455)

Tiruvannamalai  – Annamalaiyar Temple (12.231942, 79.067694)

Chidambaram     – Nataraja Temple (11.399596, 79.693559)

Rameswaram      – Ramanathaswamy Temple (9.2881, 79.3174)

These temples were built at a time (thousands of years ago) when there was there no satellite technology available in world.

The architecture and location of these temples on one line symbolise the engineering and geographical knowledge possessed by ancient Indians.

Out of these eight temples, five temples have Shiva linga, represented as manifestation of five basic elements of nature (earth, water, fire, air and space).

These Panch Bhoota Sthalas are important places of worship in South India (Pancha means five, Bhoota represents elements, Sthala represents place)

Flickering lamps in the Srikalahasti temple shows the play of wind (respiration of Vayu Linga).

Water spring in the innermost sanctum of the Tiruvanaikaval temple shows the temple’s relationship to the element water.

Annual Kartikai Deepam (giant lamp is lighted atop the Annamalai hill) highlights the Annamalaiyar’s manifestation as fire.

Swayambhu lingam of sand at Ekambareshwar temple signifies the Siva’s association with the earth element.

The formless space (Akasa) at Natraja Temple depicts the association of lord with nothingness and formlessness.

Even today research is undertaken by many historians and archaeologists to find out the mystery behind such accurate positioning of temples and choice of the latitude. Well it is still a mystery!

  1. Hi, Good point. At the same time, the location of Tanjore BIG temple (Brighadeeshwara) is also with nearly same longitude...79.13E
