  1. Dear DivakarArchaeologically there are many evidences to fix a date ealeirr than Pallavas to the Chidambram shrine. In an archaeological excavation in Salvankuppam near Mamallapuram a shrine probably dedicated to Muruga was discovered by me and interestingly the shrine is oriented towards north. It is scientifically dated to the beginning of common era and is considered as a temple of pre agamic period. After the prescriptions in Silpa texts the shrines were constructed with orientation towards east or west.Chidambram and Srirangam shrines are oriented towards south indicating their existence in pre agamic period, ealeirr than the Pal lava era.Continue your search pleaset.satyamurthy
