Tiruketeeswaram Tiruketeeswaram is a pre-historic sacred kovil in Manthoddam situated in Mannar District about seven miles north of Mannar town. It is famous according to legends as the kovil where Ketu Bhagavan worshipped Lord Eeswaram. Eeswaram Hence this holy shrine acquired the name of Tiruketeeswaram. According to Dr. Paul E. Peiris, an erudite scholar and historian, “long before the arrival of Vijaya (6th century B.C.) there was in Lanka five recognized ‘Eeswararns’ of Siva, which claimed and received adoration of all India. These were Tiruketheeswaram near Mahathitha, Munneswaram, Thondeswaram, Tirukoneswaram and Naguleswaram. The celebrated historian J.W. Bennet wrote (1843): “At Mantotte the antiquarian will find a field for research in the still extant remains of remote antiquity, amongst which are the vestiges of an immense tank (Giant Tank) arid the ruins of a former Hindu City, built of birch. The antiquity q y of the Hindus,, byy whom,, I humblyy p presume,, the island was originally g yp peopled, p , and their civilization at the remotest p period of history, are recognized by all the ancient Eastern Philosophers.” Another well-known historian, Cassie Chetty, had this to say: “Manthoddam was a center of international trade. Greeks, Romans, Phoenicians, Arabs, Ethiopians, Persians, Chinese, Japanese, Burmese and others vied with each other at various times to monopolise the trade of North Ceylon. Ceylon ” B.J. Perera, a reputed historian, wrote: “Although Mahathitha (Mathoddam) is first mentioned in connection with the landing of Vijaya’s second wife, a royal princess from the Pandyan Kingdom, there is no doubt that it was used as port by the Tamils long before the Aryan settlement in Ceylon. The existence of the Temple Tiruketheeswaram, the origin of which is not covered by existing records, is an indication of the antiquity of the port. Indeed Mahathitta is the only port in the Island which can be called a buried city. Mahathittha was a great port in the early centuries of the Christian era. Next we have the references in the Sangam literature of the Tamils describing Mahathitta as a great port.” Hugh g Neville,, another well-known researcher,, said in 1887 on the illustrious cityy of Mathoddam a follows: “A renowned shrine ggrew into repute there dedicated to one Supreme God symbolized by a single stone, and in later times restored by Vijaya, a Saivaite after lying long in ruins. The temple was dedicate as Tiru - Kethes - Waram.” This kovil, dedicated to the worship of the Supreme God Siva, has been the most venerated temple for centuries. This Temple and the holy waters of the Palavi Tank by its side are venerated in the sacred hymns of the two foremost Saiva saints Tirugnana Sampantar and Sundarar who lived in the 7th and 8th centuries respectively. This great 10-Nov-09 temple was completely destroyed by the Portuguese By E.Logeswaran, in the 16thResearcher century and the very stones of this Temple were used by15them to build the fort at Mannar, the churches and also the Hammershield Fort at Kayts.

Priceless relics of an ancient Tamil civilisation, including two granite lions, buried under sand for centuries, were unearthed on the beach in the town of Mahabalipuram, some 70kms south of Madras by the tsunamis that crashed into southern India 26 December 2004. Photo AFP

“Two different nations, from a very ancient period, have divided between them the possession of the island; the Sinhalese inhabiting the interior in its southern and western parts from the river Wallouwe to Chilaw, and the Malabars (Tamils) who possess the Northern and Eastern districts. These two nations differ entirely in their religion, language and manners.” – Sir High Cleghorn – British colonial secretary – June 1799. 10-Nov-09
