first be made to Subrahmanya SwamyTemple, situated on the other part
of indrakiladri, accessibie from Kothapet, in the ONE Town

decades. Its history and divinity are quie odd and highly
fascinating it happened - a pious devotee by name Iddhipalii
Guruvula Das, a great devotee of Subrahmanya used to offer
Suryanamaskars to Sun-god everyday, after ablutions. One day to his
good fortune Subrahmanya appeared to him in his serpent for exhilarated.
On the sixth day of this rare fortune, he ordered to build a temple
here, and he could solicit help from the local devotees. He was
advised by them when consulted to visit the Muruqan Temples in Tamil
Nadu and select one as model for the prospective shriner visiting
Palani, Tiruchendur Swamymalai, Palamulai, Tiruparakundram and
firuttani, the renowned Arupadi Veedus of Subrahmanya, and luring
throuqhout, he selected Tiruttani temple and dieties - Sri Valli
Devasana sameta Subrahmanya as the model and started construction.
Luckily he hit upon an invaluable hidden treasure - the icon of
Balasubrahmany and some earthern lamps, while digging operations
were carried on. His cup of happiness overflowed.
