Kumbakonam: At the Siva Temple in Thepperumanallur,
large numbers of devotees witnessed a miracle of a Cobra
doing Archana for Siva Lingam with Vilvam leaves.

In Thanjavoor district of Tamil Nadu, near Thirunageswaram,
there is a Siva Temple at Thepperumanallur.

Here Vedhanthanayagi [Sakthi] with Viswanathaswamy [Siva]
are the main Deities.

In this Temple, it has been customary to do archana
with Rudhraksha only.

Yesterday morning, just before Solar Eclipse,
at about 10:30 AM Sivachariar Satish, priest of the Temple,
noticed a Cobra lying on top of the Siva Linga.

The snake slowly descended from there and went towards
the Vilvam tree which is the Sthala Viruksham- Holy tree
of the temple.

It climbed the tree and picked a Vilvam leaf and
came back and entered the Sannadhi.

It hissed at any devotee trying to get near it.
It climbed onto the Siva Linga and opened it hood
and dropped the Vilvam Leaf.

This miracle was witnessed by all devotees who
were excited.

Then the Cobra went again and again to do the same
repeated two or three times.
As the news spread all over the village, hundreds of
villagers rushed to the Temple to have the Dharshan
of this event of Cobra with Siva.
[ Note: Vilvam leaf (Bilva Leaf) is holy and special
for Siva Pooja]
