Just this evening one of my friends presented me a book titled “Divya Desangalum thiruththala yaaththiraiyum” written/prepared by Sri Saikumar of Chennai. Sri Saikumar has taken much pains to collect all information about all the 108 divya desams, has provided the route guide and map for Chola, Pandia, thondai and mel nattu thiruppathikal and also for vada naattu divya desams. It will be really a very helpful guide for those planning to visit Divya dsams as information regarding temple authorities, places for stay, arrangements for meals etc. has been provided with phone numbers also. But the author should have checked up the brief sthala puranams . There are many mistakes. But it may be ignored as many of us will have a chance to know them from the temples we visit. The book priced at Rs.60/= can be had from
