PALANI

THE MULAVAR

The presiding deity is called Dandayudhapani.  The image about four feet in height is made of Navapashana.  And is supposed to have been made by sage Bhoga. Hence any substance that comes into contact with it acquires miraculous powers. 

To availing that rare benefit, devotees offer many types of abhishekam - bathe the icon with paneer, paal, sandal paste coconut water, panchamritam and take them home as prasad Every visitor takes home invariably panchamirtham, a speciality here. There are several types of Prayer Services to the deity There are many minishrines and mandapams adorned with several gods, like Eswara, Parvathi etc
