Fig.175: This is the jiva samadhi of one Manur Siddhar. He is named after this location, where he stayed and attained his samadhi in this Manur village. This Samadhi shrine is located on the highway from the Manur village to Palani. But he is not as much popular as other Siddhars and very few people know him.
The Siddha/Natha tradition symbolize the most comprehensive understanding and application of the theoretical and methodological tenets of Tantric philosophy. There are many Siddha-centres all over the Tamilnadu. The temples in Tamil-Nadu contain the sculptures depicting the Tantric rites and the images of the venerated Siddhas in it.
