It is a famous murugan temple located on the top of a hill. It is near to Thindivanam and Pondicherry. Very neat and clean. Parking facility available. When going by bus you can get down in kooteripattu and take mini bus or share auto to reach Mailam temple. It is crowded during season time and wedding day.

Mailam Murugan is our family diety And its tradition to seek his blessing on any special days or before or after any important function in the family. Mailam village near Tindivanam off GST Road .It is well connected by road from.Chennai , Pondicherry or Trichy and it is famous not just for this Murugan Temple but also for its musuem of petrified wood due to volcanic action. This temple is unique for the fact that the shiva sannidhi, is actually a jeeva Samadhi of Bala yogi Siddhar,whose life story is sketchy but he was closely involved with the formation of this famous temple on a hillock on which one can drive through a couple of hill road well laid out from.GST Road. Mayilam is located fifteen kilometres from Tindivanam and thirty from Pondicherry has historical and mythical story . The temple, situated on a small hill, is connected with a village on the Coromandel coast, Bomayapalaiyam, very near Pondicherry, where a Vera Saiva mutt is found. According to the name, bomma or bomme, derived from brāhmana. This was a village donated to Brahmans, as is confirmed by the sthala purāna.in which Bomayapalaiyam is also named Brahmapuram. The legend of this kshetra begins with the end of Surapadma’s atrocious rule and his tearful appeal to Lord to accept him as his mount. According to sthalapurana, Surapadma, though fought against Muruga with all his might combining the tactile of asuramayopaya, was routed in the end. When he was about be slain, he appealed to the Lord to accept him as his vehicle, and he would serve him with loyalty. Moved by the tearful appeals, the Lord ordered him to do meditation with great steadfastness taking the shape of peacock (Mayil in Tamil) on the bank of Varaha near Mayilamalai. Nodding, he continued his appeal to the Lord to dwell for ever on the same hill. It was granted. Thus came into existence this Mayilamalai and the place called Mayilam, for short. The temple atop the hill was built by Pommayapuram, Mathadhipathi and is very well maintained. One can drive right upto the main entrance up the small hill with adequate parking space. View from above is Very panoramic.
