PALANI

It may not be exaggeration to say that atleast five out of ten in Tamil Nadu, particularly feel highly honoured in bearing his name in a wide variety of its ramifications, like Gnanapanditha, Guhane Saravanan, Alagar, Kadirvel, Kumaran, Velan, Vadivelan, Dandayadapani, Subramanya, Skanda, Karthikeya, Shanmuga, Muruga, Palani, Arumuoa, Sivakumara etc.  He is indescribably glorified to the extent, that there is no village or town without his temple; no street without his icon fixed in some corner or the other; no house without his protrait; no auspicious occasion begins without mentioning his name; no public institution that does not declare a holiday on any one of the days dear to him like Krithikai, Kandasasti etc. no Kalakshepam that does not make a reference to his exploits overtly: or covertly and no venture or business becomes complete without mentioning his name at one stage or together.

Thus grown in fame and sanctity, he adorned and has been adorning literature in every genre that no singer or saint, writer or reporter ever earns a living or fame; if he does not claim his adoration to that Muruga; for it is this deity that is deemed Gnanapanditha; the custodian of Tamil Culture; the indomitable warlord; the enchanting prince charming that enkindles devotion and assures abhaya to everyone, regardless of caste, religion, creed, region etc., it is this Muruga that established his sway over people to the astonishment of his own father and proved more popular than that great Lord, known for infinite compassion; it is to this Lord Parvathi, Lakshmi, Agni and Surya worshipped at this abode; it is this temple that has a winch service enabling the aged and infirm to reach his feet; it is this deity considered as the infant aspect of Lord Siva; and it is this abode - Palani deemed the best among his arupadiveedus six favorite abodes, in terms of the number of visiting devotees, hundi collections, performance of a wide range of Prayer Services etc.
