MARUDAMALAI - SUBRAHMANYA TEMPLE

This seat of Muruga set against the back drop of high hills, overgrown with bounteous flourish of colourful verdure is elaborately described in the Perur Puranam, treating the three hills - Vellingiri, Nilli and Marudamalai as the manifestations of Lord Siva, Parvathi and Muruga. Taking seat in the Marudamalai buffeted by Vellingiri and Nilli, this Lord enjoying the eternal care of his Omni compassionate parents, seems holding an all protective carefree umbrella over his adorers perpetually. Does this not illustrate the truth of the adage - "As is the father so is the son". Here the visitors have the advantage of getting blessings of Siva and Uma though they worship the holy Murugan's icon only. Perhaps, due to its ineffable glory, it is praised as one of the famous six hill abodes of Lord Muruga by some authorities.

According to sthalapurana, it is from this abode of his, he marched against Surapadma at the heart-rending appeals of gods, when directed by Lord Maheswar. In proof of this, we observe on the way to sannidhi, a beautiful mandap enshrining the hoof marks of his horse - Kudirai Kulambu.

The temple enshrining the Lord is of modest dimensions and unostentatious in adornments. The Moolavar is in standing posture, holding his potent Vel in his hand and facing east. It is a masterly sculptured icon that bends heads at the first sight itself. He is over benevolent and grants boons out of proportion to the demand made, if he is contented with genuine devotion.' There is another sannidhi called Moolasthan, where the Lord is giving darsan with his spouses Valli and Devasena. On the way to the hill top, along with stair, there is Thanthonria Vinayakar koil and devotees offer prayers here first.
