CHINNAALAPATTI - NANGUMUKHA MURUGAN TEMPLE

This temple has a fantastic legend revealing the inimitable boyhood sports of Muruga and their aftermath. According to the version of temple priest, once Bala Muruga had the rare occasion of playing a practical joke on Brahma, the Lord of Creation. During a casual meeting, he asked Brahma to explain the meaning of Pranava. When Brahma fumbled to give its connotation extempore, Murugan imprisoned Brahma at once. In addition, he took over the charge of creation assuming four faces as that of the Creator. That unearthly inexplicable charm of the episode is represented in the temple here. It is a big temple with spacious courtyards and grand tower with many mini-shrines. It is in the garbhagriha, a superbly sculptured image of Subrahmanya with four faces and twelve hands in sitting posture is installed and it is extremely enchanting and lifts the souls at first sight itself. Above all, the Lord has a passion of genuine bhakti and fulfills their desires instantly to their contentment. Hence claims numerous bhaktas. Regular and periodical festivals are celebrated with great pomp and splendour. The weaving community and the merchant families spend huge amount during festivals luring huge crowds.

It is 10 km off Dindugul on. Madras-Madurai highway, accessible by bus and train.
