About Madurai Aadheenam: The legendary Madurai Aadheenam has existed since time immemorial. It was revived around 1500 years ago by the young enlightened incarnation Tirugnana Sambandar, one of the four visionary saints of Shaiva Siddhanta philosophy. The Aadheenam is established in Madurai, one of the oldest cities of India with a history dating back to Tamil Sangam period in the 3rd century BC. The presiding deities of Madurai are Shiva and Devi in their incarnations as Sundareshwara and Meenakshi, enshrined in the world-famous Madurai Meenakshi-Sundareshwara temple.
H.H. Paramahamsa Nithyananda has been recently coronated as the 293rd pontiff of Madurai Aadheenam. With a vision to establish Madurai Aadheenam as an authentic source of Vedic history and philosophy, Nithyananda has announced the launching of a Vedic University and Vedic Library in Madurai. To expand the current activities of the Aadheenam, he has also initiated social services such as setting up 100 schools in the district and a 300-bed charitable hospital.
