Shiva in Disguise

Arunachaleswarar is reputed to always be on the mountain in disguise. There is a mysterious and sacred banyan tree on the Northern peak of the mountain and Maheswara, disguised as a Siddha, is believed to be always at the root of that great banyan tree. The shade of the tree is itself supposed to very mystical and conforming to the shape of a mandala.
