Prominence of the Shrine : It is the first of the Arupadai Veedu – the six sacred abodes of Lord Muruga. The deity is in the temple, atop a hillock. The Lord presents Himself in the sitting posture – the only such shrine among the Arupadai Veedu. Another importance is that here the ‘Vel’ (spear shaped weapon of Muruga) is offered abishekam

Temple History : It is believed that Muruga married Devasena here, after his successful war with the demon Surapadma and his army; for which He incarnated. After annihilating Surapadma, Muruga converted his remains into(a) the sacred Pea-cock, which formed His mount (vehicle), and (b) the chanticleer (rooster), which he kept on His flag. Pleased by this, Indra (the chief of devas) offered his daughter, Devasana, to the Lord in marriage, which is believed to have taken place here.The marriage arrangements were made by Brahma while Sun & Moon hoisted jewel studded lights. The event was witnessed by His parents, Goddess Parvathy- Lord Shiva with pleasure.
