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.
