The localites told me that Lord Muruga is protecting them. Even the Tsunamy waves could not reach Muruga temple's protective walls. It was a miracle for them. Tharakasura , by virtue... More

The Muruga idol is adorable and you can sit and watch it for hours ( but you will not be allowed). For persons having less time and not interested... More

One of the oldeat and biggest temples dedicated for Lord Murugan. Children will really enjoy the location. Gents including Chilean need to wear... More
