KADIRKAMAM - MURUGAN SHRINE

This much-hallowed and highly venerated Muruga kshetra appears, rather is passing for a joint property of Indian and Simhaleese devotees. The island Ceylon has been having cultural finks with the main land India since the Tretayuga, to be precise, from the coronation of Vibhishana, the unforgettable and inimitable ally of (3hagawan Sri Rama. Later many favourable conditions constrained the migration of Indians and they settled down there permanently sharing their lot with the native Simhaleese. In consequence, Tamil culture spread to the nooks and corners of Ceylon, and as an aftermath perhaps, splendid monuments sprouted distributing the divine ambrosia to one and all. Although the natives drank to their bellies full, they exercised their power by their shere numerical strength. The Kadirkamam temple administration is a standing example to the point in question.

This famous hill temple dedicated to Muruga, the most choicest worshipful god of Tamilians was built by Tamilians, but strangely enough its administration is vested in the hands of Simhaleese, who are Buddhists from time immemorial. Hence there is an admixture of two cultures, but they are blended harmoniously. According to Sthalapurana, Murugan, the Devasenaadhyaksha, came to further South to destroy Suran, the lokakantaka and after dushtasamhara he has been abiding atop a hill on the bank of Manikya Ganga lured by the spectacular beauty and ineffable charms of the primor al forest. After creating Navaganga, the present temple Pushkarini he is staying with his lovely spouses Valli and Devasena. This famous kshetra is situated on the hill top and down below lies a small village housing a small temple and is inhabited by Simhaleese mostly. Among them a particular sect is looking after the temple administration providing facilities for pilgrims visiting the hill temple regularly.
