Temples And Legends Of Tamilnadu Introduction

There are 33 temples in Tamilnad, dedicated to the worship of Muruga. Tirupporur temple is one of them. Tirupporur is situated 16 miles northeast to Chingleput. It is connected by bus service with Madras and the distance is 36 miles.

In ancient times, Lord Vishnu and his consort Lakshmi were subjected to the curse of Kanva Rishi. Lord Siva came to this place and liberated them from its effects. Therefore, Tirupporur temple is a very significant shrine dedicated to the worship of Lord Siva as well as his son Muruga. The sthalapurana discloses that at this place Muruga with his consorts Valli and Devayanai granted protection to Devas and Agastya Muni expounded the meaning of Pranava.
