Product Description

Tirumankai Alvar’s eighth-century magnum opus, the Periya Tirumoli, consists of 1084 quatrains of Tamil verse which focus predominantly on sacred sites devoted to the god Visnu, depicting landscapes and temple towns with superb imagery, animation and almost tangible verisimilitude, affording the reader with the experience of a mental pilgrimage. This publication provides the full metrical Tamil text, a transliterated version indicating word boundaries, and an English translation that tightly adheres to the original as much as possible, but also endeavours to provide a pleasant poetic experience for the reader. Ample annotations offer insight into grammar, prosody, mythology, and religious content, with further details in appendices on grammatical and prosodic features, episodic content and on the sacred sites.
