GATIKACHALAM - KADIKACHALA MURUGA TEMPLE

This is a hill temple renowned for the curing of snake bite. Atop the hill, in the garbhagriha, a charming archamurti is installed, and at a little lower to the sannidhi there are two sannidhis for Valli and Devasena. The icons are specimens of fine artistry, and are quite attractive. On the way up hill, there is a small but well-built sannidhi enshrining the image of Subbarayar, another popular name for Murugan. It acquired a very great fame and is seen always crowded, due to the fact that the victims of snake bite are cured with the abundant compassion of this Lord. Wailing victims return home smiling, cured of the poison effects. Moreover, it is preferred for the celebration of weddings by certain castes in the locality. So always crowded. There are many images of the most adorable deities, like Siva, Murugan and Idumban installed in a fine mini-shrines adjoining the temple. They are adored with equal religious fervour. Annual festivals draw lakes of devotees.

It lies 2 kms off Uthukuzhi near Tirunelveli of Tamilnadu, accessible by bus.
