We went here around 11 AM and bought special entry ticket for darshan. Parking is tricky near temple - so plan accordingly. Had a good darshan !!

Thiruparankunram has Deity sculptured on the rock directly. Traffic arrangement near the temple is confusing for want of directions. Theppakkulam is refreshing

Just about 15 mins drive from Madurai central bus stand lies this wonderful temple - the first house of Lord Murugan. when you enter the main temple, don't miss the replica of the temple, hill and the surroundings on the right side. Good one. A hassle free darshan of the Lord.

One of the six abodes of Lord Murugan. The temple has Vishnu with Shiva family, a rare thing. Temple is very beautiful with intricate carvings, easily accessible. Not much space available for parking close to the 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.
