TIRUMURUGAN POONDI - MURUGAN TEMPLE

The legends of this kshetra envisage the glory of Lord Maheswar and the power of devotion through the life of Sundaramurti Nayanar. And it is here Muruga worshipped Siva, his father before undertaking hazardous military campaign against the powerful demons. The Muruga sannidhi faces west and it enshrining an exquisite image of twelve armed Muruga with his vehicle peacock. The garbha griha contains the very same linga adored by Muruga. So on entering, the devotees avail the darsan of father and son at one place and worship them soulfully. The temple Pushkarini is called Shanmuga thirtha, materialized by Muruga with his powerful weapon for offering abhishek to his father. So held very holy. There are two more - Gnana thirtha and Agni thirtha in the same compound used for sacred bath There is a separate Vinayaka sannidhi and just opposite this, there is a big hole with a bizzare legend. It is said that water flows from it once in twelve years, and then visit huge crowds worship Ganesha and sip that sacred thirtha. There is another awe-some legend about this Lord. There are three statues Sundarar depicting his loss of money and obtaining it later with the infinite mercy of Siva Peruman. Nityanaimithika worship offered with great devotional fervour. It is a unique holy kshetra for the three highest deities. Hence unending streams of devotee. round the year.

It is 8 km off Tirupur and accessible by bus.
