KILLON - MURUGAN SHRINE

This infinitely famous Murugan temple is the peerless contribution of the Nagartha communities of Nattukoti Chettiars who established themselves in Malaysia firmly by their commercial activities and daring enterprises of all types. They are devout Muruga Bhaktas first and last and undertake temple constructional activities wherever they settle down. This temple at Killon built in the Dravidian architectural design on the bank of river Killon is a standing monument of their devotional zeal and patronage of arts and crafts. Its superb architectural pattern vies with its ace sculptural adornments and it is drawing large number of devotees regardless of their race, religion, caste, creed etc. It won aliens' appreciation and their participation in the devotional activities is also appreciable. Here in this temple, one observes both Saivate and Vaishnavate deities, such as the icons of Vishnu and Muruga in well-built shrines, thereby proving that there exists not any difference between the sects. It is another colourful feather added to the builders - Nattukoti Chettiars, whose religious zeal took the shape of temples built both atop the hill and at other places. Regular daily prayers are offered with great religious fervour and the special periodical festivals on a grand scale and pomp enviable, displaying their immense wealth and superior status in all.

It lies in killon, one of the famous towns of Malaysia.
