PATTUMALAI - MURUGAN SHRINE

This hill-temple is a much-frequented popular Murugan temple that lured the aliens into its fold and in a way converted them to the all-adorable Hindu way of fife. Among the visiting devotees Malasiyans form a considerable percentage and their adoption is quite appreciable. It was a cave temple in the beginning, and only 'Vel' the potent weapon of Muruga was installed and prayers were offered to it with due devotional fervour. As the Omni compassion of the Lord was realised through getting relief to mani-fold problems of daily life and particularly from the diseases, the number of devotees mounted higher. Their devotion too assumed new shape. Construction of a beautiful temple with installation of his icon became the craze of the devotees. Donations poured in and selfless Bhaktas entering the field built an excellent temple in the Dravidian style of architecture, like making provision for garbha griha, courtyards, mini-shrines, dwajasthamba etc. The icon of Moolavar - Muruga is a specimen of ace sculptural art that bends heads at first Darshan itself. Devotees standing before it drink in the glory of Muruga with their eyes. The idol is in standing posture of commendable height; donned in dazzling diamond jewels and colourful garlands it lifts the souls and confers blessings out of proportion, if only the flower of genuine devotion is placed at his feet. People are placing their hearts as flowers and are getting benedictions to their contentment. Daily worship is offered with due devotion and periodical festivals are conducted with great pomp and splendour.

It lies 20 km off Kolalumpur, accessible by four wheelers.
