After visiting the huge Sri Meenakshi temple in Madurai, this was a more intimate experience with the added bonus that we were allowed to take photographs. About 8k from Madurai, the temple is built into the side of a huge rock (our driver had already taken us to see a tiny and much older temple built into the other side... More

This is again one among the six abodes of Lord Muruga and is located just 8 km from Madurai city. Its inner most shrines is cut of a single rock. It served as a hospital during British period during wars. The temple has some good sculptures inside. There is another small temple located on top of the hill.

Located in the foothills of Thirupparakundram, the temple is one of the 6 houses of Lord Muruga. Buses in the series of 5, 22 & 48 from periya bus stand frequent to this place. Saravana poihai is a must visit, its very near to the temple. Special darshan is available, free darshan takes a long and narrow route. As the... More

Good place and it's worth to visit this place. Plan to have your own transport arrangement like call taxi or tourist vechicle.

Thiripparankudram Murugan temple is in town but a 20 minute ride from my hotel. I had received darshan when I visited this temple in 2002. The day had been a special festival and the pressure and smell of the bodies, the thick incense cloud, the heat, the laughing priests, one after another, all painting my forehead, had made that occasion...

This is a must visit for a spiritual traveller. It is ancient temple cut into the mountain. Very powerful, there are many small temples within, with rare idols of sages Patanjali, Ved Vyasa and Parasara. Photography is allowed upto a point and it is worth the ticket as there is a lot to photograph. There is also a gurukul school... More

I went with family on 14th Jan 2015 to have darsan of Sri Subramanya Swamy. Too much rush was there. We went through special darsan queue and we could see the Lord within 30 minutes.Really it was worth visiting because of its sacredness. It is one of the 6 padaivedus of Sri Subramanya in Tamilnadu. This is one of the... More

A good temple to visit. Not like Meenakshi temple, but we can visit the place. Very peaceful place. Duration you should devote there is around 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours.
