Long search bore an insignificant tiny fruit lit for inclusion. Regarding A as unpalatable, I added those in dilapidated condition, whose gigantic proportions and enormous popularity added colour and light to temple history. And regaled, rather emancipated the visitors and adorers.

Coming to Murugan temples, the picture is not altogether pleasant and praise-worthy. Why? For, shocks and surprises juxtaposing bewildered me, during the search for material. Mainly due to whimsicality of human nature, rather thoughtless craze for sectarianism that denied the sect its due recognition and fitting adoration; for, in some states of North India, temples for Muruga are not built proportionate to the exalted position he is occupying, and the role he played as the Field-Marshall of celestial army. Of course, in some Saivate temples, there lie his images installed only for name sake. In contravention, there greets in Tamilnadu profusion that ends in contusion; for, the efforts of the devotees to the diffusion of this sect, by building temples, or propagation of devotional activities went to such an extent, his father, Lord Maheswar, alas) is relegated to back ground, to speak the truth. There is no human settlement without Murugan temple and hence the justification of the statement that Tamil Nadu is Muruga Nadu as boasted by some vested interests. There are some states having his mandirs. but not as many as they should be. The major ones are included.
