Are there English translations of Arunachala Puranam and Arunachala Mahatmiyam and where can I get them?

Arunachala Maahatmyam, Tamil version is available in the Asramam.
I am not sure about the English version.  Regarding Arunachala Puranam, this original Tamil work is again available in the Asramam.
You may kindly write to Asramam, Tiruvannamalai 606 603, India
and find out. 

Arunachala Siva.

The Arunachala Mahatmyam was serialised in The Mountain Path in English in the 60s and 70s. A bound copy of all the installments is in the ashram library. Motilal Banarsidass also brought out a translation in their Purana translation series. It is part of the Skanda Purana, but the portion that contains Arunachala Mahatmyam is in a separate book.

The Arunachala Puranam has never been published in English, but  a translation of the chapter about King Vallalan's quest for a son was published in The Mountain Path about twenty years ago.
