Stolen Natarajar reached India


A simple word of thanks to Sri Sivarpanam Trust & Sri Mouli would be the biggest injustice that we could do for what he has done. Sri Mouli upon hearing that Nataraja is arriving to Central Station (after retrieved from Australia) –  click here to read the article to know the context – he had apparently requested Sri Nandakumar to arrange proper welcome to Nataraja who is returning home after 37 years from Australia. Nandakumar in the shortest possible time took social media as a tool to reach out to all sivanadiyars and all vadhyams etc and pulled 1000s of devotees in central station to receive Sri Nataraja….As per his audio message, central station was looking like Chidambaram with so many music, dances, sivanadiyars doing parayanam etc. All these happened under 12 hours or so – impossible to even think about this.

So many people read this news in the paper etc – but it took only Sri Mouli and his friend to pull off an unprecedented welcome to Nataraja back to India. One can’t go near their Siva bakthi!

He forwarded me so many photos and video clips and I am sharing few for your view.

Sri Mouli, Professor – Hats off to you and Sri Sivarpanam Trust and our heartfelt thanks to you all. Our namaskaram to you and your siva kainkaryam! Let Nataraja bless your families with everything!

Aum Nama Shivaya!

Adiyarukkum Adiyen!

  1. Because of people like Ponn Manickkavel, there is rain in Tamil Nadu. Let there be a people’s movement to safe guard our treasures in the temples. All Political parties have great thieves amongst them who have been looting our temples in the past and continue even now.

  2. ஓம் ஸ்ரீ நடராஜா சரணம் சரணம் . ஜானகிராமன் . நாகப்பட்டிணம்

  3. Any coverage on this commendable recovery will not complete if due recognition and accolade is given to Ponn Manikkavel – that single minded dedicated cop , who had to fight both the thieves and Tamil Nadu Government at the same time. But for strong and solid support from the High Court this ancient idol would have continued to be an exhibit in that Australian museum.

    More public opinion should be channelled to ensure that he continues his noble task even after his retirement .

  4. That’s very happy news. Hope we are not robbed of any more of our divine treasures in the future.

  5. Thanks for sharing.

    Hope nothing is stolen in future.

  6. Thank you very much for sharing the treasure

  7. Fantastic effort in bringing back the stolen Nataraja Perumal idol from Australia. Hopefully, many other precious idols stolen from the ancient temples in India especially from the South will be recovered and brought back to the original temple.
