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.

Thriuparamkundram is one of the famous Aupadai veedu temple. I have visited this temple with family. Lord Muruga's idol was so lovely.

This is one of the popular temples in town. It is quite far from the main city. Hire a auto or taxi to reach here. The back side of the temple is a small hill. At the entrance you would find several shops selling pooja items. We din't had much time, so we opted for Speical darshan (Rs. 50). We... More

Unless you have strong belief in this temple and deity, it need not be on must visit list for Madurai. Core of the temple is carved out from rock and though the temple is beautiful, it's not an exceptional sight. And from that perspective, it's an average temple and therefore not a must visit. It's around 7 km from Periyar... More

Would have been happy if I could have gone to the top of the hill. Could not as I was escorting not so strong or physically capable and was advised not to try the steep climb. Otherwise it was good and the special darshan made things really easy.

This Tiruparankundram is the first house of lord muruga it is located in Madurai (South Madurai) near by Thiagarajar College of Engineering. Avoid visiting this temple on Tuesday/Karthikai will be flooded with devotees. Don't miss to go to Pazhamudhircholai (Sixth house of lord muruga) just located 25 km far from Tiruparamkundram. You will really like Pazhamudhircholai located at Azhagar kovil... More
