The famous Arunachaleswarar Temple at Thiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu is a Pancha Bootha Sthalam representing the element Fire (Agni). It is said that Lord Shiva manifested in Thiruvannamalai as a column of fire. Lord Brahma and Vishnu tried to find the origin of the fire column towards the top and the bottom but could not find any end to it. The holy Arunachala mountain is considered as the representation of the column of fire itself. Devotees circumbulate around the mountain considering it as the Lingam of frozen fire. The Arunachala mountain is also associated with the life of Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi.
