RATNAGIRI - MURUGAN TEMPLE

This hallowed Murugan shrine came into existence by the indefatigable efforts of one Muruga bhakta called Ratnagiri Swamigal. He is the founder builder-propagator of Murugan cult in this area in such an exemplary way that his word was taken as Vedavak. And people readily succoured help in several forms to make his bhakti take the form of temple and to standing as a beacon light for the star-crossed people in the material world.

It is an imposing temple adorned with a fall Rajagopuram, seen for miles afar, beckoning devotees to Murugan sannidhi for emancipation. Being a hill temple, flight of stairs is not only indispensable, but adds to the joy of frequent visits for adoration. So the founder with public donation and the cooperation of willing devotees caused the flight of stairs numbering exactly 178 built, and it is accelerating ascent and drawing huge crowds. The superbly sculptured image of Murugan flanked by Valli and Devasena is giving darsan and casts such an enchantment that the bhaktas join their palms at first sight itself. The temple is facing east and has all parts built in vast dimensions. This was visited by Arunagiri Swamigal, who offered worship with his flowery verses. Regular and annual functions are carried on with due devotion.

    It is on the Vellore - Arcot bus route, accessible by bus.
