This post has been created to bring to the notice of general public about the significance of the small town called "Attayampatti". It is a small town in Salem district famous for its textile weaving (Handloom & Powerloom) and "Murukku". Attayampatty means Adu (Sheep; Goats) Idayan (Shepherd) Patty (village?), the place was once famous for Sheep & Goat, during the weekly market on Sunday hundreds of Sheep are butchered for the meat. People from Surrounding villages visit the market and buy the meat on Sunday. The skin of goat were purchased for leather making.

The Address for Ashram is

Gnananda Ashram
Near Subramanya Swamy temple
Velanatham
Attayampatty

(On the way From Periya mariamman temple to Chinna Mariamman temple.) We might have crossed this place several times. The periya Mariamman temple (kumbam) is usually kept after the festival in a well which is just below the Ashram.
