SENNIMALAI - KUMARAN TEMPLE

Over and above this lofty hill, about 420 metres high, there lies a beautiful temple dedicated to Muruga, luring streams of devotees and tourists throughout the year. There are several broad well-built mandaps around the temple in the prakara, some installed with deities, like Visalakshi, Viswanatha and others serving as rest houses for the visiting bhaktas. In the main sannidhi, the Moolavar is giving darsan in Aandikolam form, which is quite pleasant. He is endearingly called Sennimalainathar. Its inner walls are adorned with fine sculptures. There are separate sannidhis for Valli and Devasena', and although small, they are artistically built and superbly adorned.  In between these two, there is another mini-shrine housing a Swayambhu linga said to have been worshipped by Agasthya first. Below the hill, there is a shrine for Lord Siva and he is worshipped as Kailasanathar and the Mother, Perianayaki. In addition, Lord Muruga and Idumaban are enshrined in the temples adjoining the main shrine. Daily worship is offered in all the shrines in accordance with agama tenets. The hill is provided with Ghat road for vehicles, besides steps. On the way, there is a Malarvili Vinayakar temple. The hillocks seem placed one over the other, and serve a grand feast to the eyes and lift the spirits as one goes nearer and nearer to the top. The kshetra is called by several names such as Sivagiri, Sikharagiri, Pushpagiri and Senniangiri. Nityanaimithika worship is offered with great devotional fervour.

It is 31km off Erode, a famous town of Tamilnadu, accessible by four wheelers.
