KUMARAKOIL - KUMARAN TEMPLE

The legend of Murugan meeting Valli for the first, and the rebuffs he received from that haughty-headed, virtuous hunter girl is said to have taken place here and that self-same 'form of Vengai tree assumed by Muruga is adored with great devotional fervour since then. It is recorded in the kanda Purana that Murugan developed hopeless passion for this chubby, ravishing young hunting girl during his hunting expedition once. He tried to win her affection by conversation in which that forest girl outwitted him out and out. He then transformed himself into a Vengai tree, when his efforts eluded his grasp. With the invaluable assistance of Vinayaka his elder brother, he was united with her in wedlock. That episode took place here. Hence immense sanctity and indescribable attraction. The archamurti is giving darsan with his lovely spouse Valli. This Vengai tree is receiving reverent worship on the last Fridays of every Tamil month, besides the regular and annual festivals. Thousands worship with utmost devotion on that auspicious day.

It is on the Nagarkoil - Tiruvananthapuram bus route, but one has to walk a distance of one km to reach it. It is accessible by bus.
