There are lots and lots of mountains around the world. They are epitomes of beauty and paradise. They sustain wildlife, rare spicies, a lot more. There is a particular town in Tamilnadu which holds a special mountain, that mountain holds mysteries that are unfathomable by human beings.
The town is called – Tiruvannamalai.

This place has a lot of siddas living there, usually they cannot be distinguised from common man, a few of those people are Ramana Maharishi, Seshadri Swamigal, etc.
