lying in the south west
corridor. Every pilgrim visits this and pays homage to him as he is responsible
for making the Navapashana image and installation for salvation of mankind.
priest narrates that maharshi Bhoga lived some five thousand years before and
his realisation of Murugan glory was quiet tremendous that he embarked upon
