Just about 15 mins drive from Madurai central bus stand lies this wonderful temple - the first house of Lord Murugan. when you enter the main temple, don't miss the replica of the temple, hill and the surroundings on the right side. Good one. A hassle free darshan of the Lord.

Part of Murugan's Aaru padai veedu... Must visit if you make a trip to Madurai... It's in a beautiful hill/reserved forest

One of the six abodes of Lord Murugan. The temple has Vishnu with Shiva family, a rare thing. Temple is very beautiful with intricate carvings, easily accessible. Not much space available for parking close to the temple.

The first of six veedu's of Lord Muruga, neatly maintaned temple premises. It is a cave temple, few steps to climb but a good experience at the end.

This temple is very ugly and very boring inside. You are hearded along metal cages to circumnavigate the temple and there's no way out. It's over 40 degrees inside. There's nothing to look at except other people queuing, and you can't even get a good look outside because the shops start metres from the entrance. You can't walk freely and... More

This Murugan temple is located at a distance of 8kms from the Meenakshi Amman Temple and is on the outskirts of Madurai city. The temple is a cave, having been cut into a massive rock. The entrance to the cave leads through a number of columns acting as pillars, but part of the original rock, having inscriptions of the temple... More

Tiruparam kundram is situated 5 kms from Madurai town. Regular bus services are available. The kalyana utsavam- the marriage ceremony of the Lord is a must watch. The Shanmuga Archanai is where you will see the religious and spiritual activity of this temple at its best. The Lord sits on a hill and the poojascare done so systematically. A peaceful... More
