Tiruttani with the famous temple dedicated to Lord Subrahmanya is situated 51
miles away from Madras, on the way to Tirupati, on the railway line to Bombay. The temple
is situated on a small hill, which is reached over a flight of 365 masonry steps. It is
one of the six famous abodes of Lord Subrahmanya. It is considered to be the second place
of importance by some, while others give it the first place as Lord Subrahmanya resides in
blissful repose here, after his marriage with Valli.
