TIRUPPORUR

There are inscriptions in the temple to show that it was built during the days of the Pallavas. It faded into insignificance for some time. But during the middle of the seventeenth century Chidambara Swamigal renovated it. This place was then a forest of palmyra trees. Lord Muruga as Swayambhu Murti lay covered up by an anthill. Chidambara Swamigal removed the anthill and built the sanctum sanctorum for Muruga. The descendants of Chidambara Swamigal followed up the religious service and brought it to the present day fame. The sanctum sanctorum of this temple is situated on the eastern side wherein one can see the palmyra tree and the anthill kinder it wherein is Kanda Perumal with Valli and Devayanai on a small Peetham. Chidambara Swamigal used to perform
abhishekam to these images. The Murti in the anthill is covered with Kavacham and other jewels but no abhishekam is performed for this deity.

On the southern side of the temple, there is Saravana Poigai and Valliyar Odai, the two sacred Teertham. On the eastern side of the teerthas, there is a mandaparn of four pillars. There is also another Teertha by name Pranavamritam.
