ANDAVARKUPPAM - MURUGAN TEMPLE

This is a unique Muruga kshetra with a fantastic and rare traditions. And was visited by renowned Saivate pravaktas in addition to inspiring poets and composers, who eulogized the glory of this kshetra in their immortal poetry. According to sthalapurana, the archamurti was Swayamvyakta and hidden among the creepers surrounded by rocks and impenetrable shurbs. When found out its location by accident, devout theists came forward to install it in a befitting shrine. Soon pious bhaktas entered the arena and caused a beautiful temple built with public donations in several forms. After installation, some three hundred years back, the archamurti revealed his glory through miracles occurred in the live, of ardent devotees. The temple emerged as a pilgrim centre, and Muruga as Pratyaksha daivam in a matter of few decades. Moreover it is steadily and gradually rising in spiritual importance to the jealousy of many such hill temples. Among the odd and awe-some traditions introduced here is-the darsan of Murugan made available in three different and distinct forms on three auspicious occasions of the day. The consummate art of decorating the image of archamurti as child - Bala Muruga in the mornings, youthful charming Kumara in the noon time, and aged Muruga during evenings indeed merits highest veneration. And in this aspect it is comparable to Lord Maheswar at Vaikom in Kerala It is indeed a grand feast which the devotees enjoy and cherish for ever. And lo! it beckons frequent visits for soulful adoration and eyeful darsan. This uniqueness is drawing an unending streams of devotees throughout the year. Agamic worship is offered and annual festival are celebrated with due pomp.
