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

Also known as Thirupparankundram Murugan Temple. Just below foothills of a hill. Its a big temple and there are lots of small small steps (easier to climb and travel) to reach the deity. Nice temple.

Beautifully rcarved Rock sculptures of all gods in one place. Neatly maintained. Must be attentive to look for the details of the deities that assembled to witness the celestial marriage of Lord Muruga. Better visit this place in the morning or evening as the city is known for hotted climate.

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.

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...
