TIRUTTANI -  SUBRAHMANYASWAMY TEMPLE

This is one of the six reputed hill temples of Lord Muruga, occupying much coveted place in legends and devotional literature. It has at least fourteen names such as Neeladri, Senkalvagiri,Neelotpalagiri, Kavimalai, Kallaragiri, Thanikachalam etc., the last referees to a place of solitude, where Muruga settled down for peace and relaxation after vanquishing Surapadma. It was called Thanigai, meaning thereby, aloofness the Lord's special preference for solitude to leading a peaceful, graceful, useful life on hill tops. Hence Nakkirar sings of HIM as the Lord of Mountains. It is here he reveals, one of the unique facets of his multidimensional personality - the sublime artist displaying his proficiency in playing on many musical instruments.

The famous Gandamadana Hill near Kailas, his boyhood home is found inferior to this,' says the priest. He narrates the glories of this kshetra to Valli, his lovely spouse. Devendra caused three ponds, blessed with the growth of different kinds of flowers, Eke Neelotpala etc. that blossom in three ponds for three periods of the day for the worship of Muruga. The thirtha of these ponds are so sacred that anyone dipping in them and sipping it after soulful worship gets liberated and attains sayujya mukti. Above all - man or deva, if he does not worship here will be deemed inert and worse than vegetable kingdom.
