Dikshitar's Travels

A few of Muthuswami Dikshitar's kshetra kritis in connection with his birth anniversary on March 24.

Muthuswami Dikshitar travelled widely throughout his adult life, and this is one of the main reasons for the sheer variety of deities and temples that his compositions are based on. This, along with Dikshitar's concentration on the sthala purana and other esoteric aspects of the deities, has also given us the many group kritis, such as the Navavarana kritis, Navagraha kritis, and the Panchabhuta Linga kritis, to name a few. This feature follows Dikshitar on his perigrinations and presents the songs that he composed as he visited those temples.
