Muruga 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

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
