SURILIMALAI - MURUGAN TEMPLE

When they sought Siva Peruman's refuge, he directed them to go and worship Muruga at this place. Listening to their pathetic plight, Lord Muruga forthwith ordained Saneswar to release them from his clutch. He did. Then the released gods prayed that Saneswar should not harass anyone, if he visits and worships Murugan and Saneswar here. Pleased with their humanism, both agreed. And since then the star-crossed humanity is rushing to be under the all-protective umbrella of Muruga.

According to another legend, Manmatha at the behest of Devendra went to Kailas to disturb Siva's penance, but Nandi at the gate barred his entry. He went to another portal, where Bringi was keeping guard, but fortunately he was in deep slumber. So Manmatha entered and tried to accomplish his work commissioned. Lord Siva knowing the intrusion due to Bringi's slackness, cursed Bringi to be born as man and worship Muruga at Suralimali. And then burnt Manmatha for his folly. So one sees here the Bringi image in the act of worship.

Thus this place has immense spiritual powers and relieves the adorers from evil effects. Nityanaimithika worship is offered .with utmost devotional fervor.

It is 112 km off Madurai and very nearer to Cumbum, accessible by bus at all hours.
