One of the six abodes of Muruga, the most crowded and bussiest temple. Cleanliness is desired manifold. The place is holy and godly.

This is a great temple. One of the Six Houses ("Aru Padai veedu") of Lord Muruga. It is carved out of the rocks. You have to climb some stairs to reach the mail deity.

This is a great temple. It is our third visit and this occassion, we had enough time to go around. The idols are carved out of rock. Great place. Take time to go around and there are carvings which calls out for your attention.

The temple is present on the outskirts of madurai and takes around 45 mts to 1 hour to reach here. But the temple is worth the visit as you have lord muruga at the backdrop of a hill.

As any other temple of Tamilnadu, the architecture of the temple is marvellous. Like any other Lord Murugan temple, this temple is also located close to a hill. As per legend, Lord devendra had his daughter married to Lord Murugan at this place as a gift for winning the battle against the demon God of Soorapadhman. Located about 6 kms... More

Many of the idols here carved out of rocks of the hill here. The temple has an interesting history as well. This is where Lord Muruga is supposed to have married Deyvanai.
