      Many thanks to Kalki for bringing me the habit of reading books!!. When I was pursuing my Master's degree at Government College of Technology, Coimbatore, it was happened to read Kalki's "PARTHIBAN KANAVU" (thanks for my room-mate a good reader then), ofcourse I started the novel by 7.10 pm as a short time pass until the dinner 7.30 pm. But I was trapped by his writing and I lost my dinner that night and finally put down the book after 12.00. I never thought of reading a full book before, but it [...]

      What a book it is such a wonderful journey like other books of the story. The story is definitely taking some shape. Enjoyed reading it.Expecting unexpected twists in the last part.

    3. Srividya on said:

      What a thrilling journey!! Hats off to the wonderful author to have thought of and written this jewel. Rich in historical facts, accurate in it's narration; the book nevertheless has a feel of an excellent spy thriller, which incidentally it is, in a way. The characters are brought to life by the sheer mastery of words of the author. It is like living in that period and actually witnessing the events that the author is talking about. A true classic and I am glad that I am embarked on this journe [...]

      Another epic novel. Gripping story as always. Off to Volume 3.

    5. Ashish Iyer on said:

      Sivakamiyin Sabadham is a historical Tamil novel set in 7th century South India written by Kalki. This is widely regarded as one of the greatest novels ever written in Tamil Set in 7th century south India against the backdrop of various historical events and figures. Mahendravarman I, the Pallava emperor plays an important role in the first half of the story while his son Narasimhavarman comes into his own as the novel progresses. The plot revolves around the historical events of the Chalukya ki [...]

    6. Vijay Raj on said:

      I've never been to Mahabalipuram, Kanchipuran or Vathapi, but now I feel like I've been there for long! I've never admired some one dancing Bharatham before, but I did when Sivagami danced in the Kanchi palace! I've never seen elephantry bulldozing a fort, but I did when Narasimhavarman's army attacked the Vathapi fort!One must not stop with Ponniyin Selvan. Read Sivagamiyin Sabatham. It has got a lot.

    7. Ashish Iyer on said:

      What an amazing journey. This story was written in the early 1940′s revolves around the Pallava Dynasty, its kings and foes, the art and culture of the place and times, and of course, the people that made it colourful. The book is very well researched and it is like living in that period.The first volume takes the reader to Kanchi’s doorsteps. The city was known in ancient days for its forward education and the arts. This glorious city was famous all over Bharata Kanda, and a young Paranjyot [...]

    8. Ashish Iyer on said:

      What a book.That was one hell of a ride. One of the best series i have ever read. All four books deserved 5 stars. Those who haven't read it please do read it. I cant believed such an amazing journey is over.

    10. Ravi Sankar on said:

      I started this book after ponniyin selvan. Just imagine how would anyone's expectation be after reading that epic creation. Failed to meet my expectations. The love in this book was not as heart melting as that of poongulali's or vanthiyathevan's. A must read, nevertheless. The war and stuff is good

    11. Uthraa on said:

      Its a great book too. Probably I got very used to Ponniyin selvan or that's really close to my heart ,I was slightly narrow minded and partial while reading this. Sivagami's character is powerfully portrayed but for some unknown reason she did not have that impact Poonkuzhali or Kundhavai had in P.Selvan. Definitely a good read.

      This historical tamil novel by Kalki Krishnamoorthy is based on incidents in Tamilnadu that took place during 7th century AD. Among many historical and fictional characters, Thirunaavukkarasar, a religious head of famous saiva traditions, who has written thousands of poems in praise of Lord Siva in Devaram, also is featured in this novel.The historical characters in this novel are Mahendra Pallava, his son the great Narasimha Pallava, his army commander Paranjyoti, who later becomes a famed shiv [...]

    16. Shakir Shakiel on said:

      Never have I thought I would complete such a big novel. I completely fell in love with tamil language. For this I bow to the great author Kalki. I am excited to see that he has written more. Yay. Going for Parthiban Kanavu.The book is true beauty synonymous to ajanta cave paintings and its beautiful sculptures. The best character is Mahendravarma Pallavan. He truly is Vichitra veerar. He talks and acts accordingly. Sometimes I felt like whistling & clapping for his rajathanthiram. NarasimhaV [...]

    17. Balakrishnan on said:

      Only Kalki can blended fictional characters - Naganandhi and Sivakami - with real history (though his reading at that point in time, it correlates well with Tamil literature of that time) the way he has done.Not withstanding that, the intensity he has built into Mamalla Narasimha Varma Pallavan and Sivakami is amazing.Though a deep love story, i was able to read and explain to my son without any hesitation. Such literary class is rare to see.

    18. Thamizh on said:

      wow!! What a History. this story won my heart and kalki's writing was speechless guys. must read this book. i love the character paranjothi, the friendship between paranjothi and king narashima was quite good and matured. paranjothi became a divine person and our king is loyal to the kingdom and his wife and his love. i like the innocent love of mangayakarasi. Like 'manimegalai' in "ponniyan selvan" sivagami would won the readers heart. sivagami was still sivagami(with tears).

    19. Ramesh Manickavel on said:

      Longest fiction I ever read 1100+ pages and I can't believe I finished it and longing for more. This is something beyond to be reviewed. Kalki is an era and thanks to my friend who recommended to read this. Though it's a fiction, there are several historical facts which give preview of beautiful era of Tamilnadu. Love, revenge, patriotism, humour, affectionl in one. I am glad I read this book and I certainly will read all other Kalki's writings.

    20. Shailesh Subramanian on said:

      I have read all four volumes of this masterpiece and they are excellent reads. I would like to thank and congratulate Nandini for the outstanding work she has done in translating this novel and at the same time, maintaining the tamil flavour. Very strongly recommended for people who are interedted in Tamil history and literature.

    21. Meera Srikant on said:

      Very lively and good characterisation. But thought it ended abruptly And realised that I had read only 2 parts! On 3d part right now. Finished the 3d part in Oct 2012, and now the heat begins Eager to grab part 4.

    22. Krishna on said:

      One of the best book i ever red. According to my personal opinion It would be the second best of kalki after ponniyin selvan.

    23. Jayachandar Kumar on said:

      One of the best novel to start reading about pallavas and cholas :-)

    24. Sow Baranya on said:

      A must read book for all Tamil ppl as it shows art skills,love n more importantly the life of our ancient kings which s full of sacrifices. Kalki s master piece

    25. Tamil Isai on said:

      It's about narasima(he also known as maamallar). Mamalapuram is a very famous tourist place In tamilnadu. His name only named for that place. Then sivagami is a very marvelous bharathanatyam dancer. Sivagami and narasima was lovedcause of some reasons it was failed. This book has 1247. Very interesting book. Other important characters paranjothi,mahenthra varmar(father of narasima varma).My first and best book ever

      I cannot do justice to this masterpiece with my review.ch exceptional and extraordinary plot.Kalki takes you to the pallava and chalukya dynasty, the era of espionage and strategic excellencevagamiyin sapadham starts off as a historical fiction but takes you through an emotional ride and an unexpected end. I have always wondered how kalki excelled at weaving fictional characters with historykalki's modus operandi is brillianthe takes us through various characters and happenings,everything lookin [...]

    27. Kamesh Kumar N on said:

      Magnificent literary work by Kalki. The story is set in the time frame of 600 AD at Kanchipuram, the ancient city of Tamilnadu which was then ruled by Mahendra Varma Pallava, one of the greatest kings. Under his rule, Kanchi was a peaceful city known for its great patronage for arts like sculpting, dancing, painting and also home for highly educated scholars. Mahendra Varmar's crown prince Narasimha Varma (also called as Mamallar due to his unmatched wrestling skills, the current town - Mamallap [...]
