PASANG - MURUGAN SHRINE

The origin of this much-hallowed place of worship is fantastic and its powers are magnetic. Though, the worshipful object is 'Vet' - the potent weapon of Muruga, its ardent followers are large in number. According to local version, once, during the widening of road, there was a holy Rudraksha tree found obstructing the broadening operations. With a view to remove it, they applied axe, but to the stupefaction of the workers and authorities, there gushed out blood from the point where the axe hit. At once the proposal was dropped fearing evil consequences and they started worshipping it as a holy object and a divine manifestation of Lord Muruga, installing a 'Vet' the potent weapon of Muruga. This came into existence in the early twentieth century. The adorers were relieved of their worries and prospered beyond their expectation. Soon it grew into a much-sought after holy place and the tree was equated with Kalpa Vriksha - the divine wish-yielding tree. The beneficiaries are many and from all races too. That is the glory of Muruga and that accounts for his immense popularity. People irrespective of their religion, caste, creed, age, sex, language are pouring in throughout the year and are offering prayers. And going back with cheerful countenances lighted up by smiles due to fulfilment of desires. Ironical it seems, there is no idol of any type, and it is akin to worshipping Aswartha Vriksha here in India. Hasn't this phenomenon purely a Hindu India's contribution? And the inexplicable myriad splendour of the All-Powerful, Omnipotent God?

It is in Pasang, accessible by four wheelers.
