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.

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.

The temple depicts the marriage of Karthikeya(beautiful) as witnessed by Sun, Moon and Narada.There are idols of Ganesh(stunning!),Durga,Shiva and Balaji,who perhaps aslo were witness to the occasion. There is a mystic vibration to this temple which can be felt by the devotee. Must see.
