A Sanskrit sloka, cited by the late sage of Kanchi (also known as Kanchi Mahaperiyava, or Paramacarya), in a discussion of the unique place of Tamilnadu, as the birthplace of all three great Carnatic music stalwarts, is discussed here. The sloka describes how one can get moksha (liberation) easily by visiting the four holy places (kshetras) with world famous Shiva temples - Chidambaram, Kanchi, Kashi, and Tiruvarur, known for its annual chariot festival. It is also the birthplace of the three Carnatic music stalwarts (the saint Thyagaraja, Shyama Sastri and Muthuswami Deekshitar).
