Subramaniya Swamy Temple

Kumarakottam, Kanchipuram



Moolavar : Sri Subramaniya swamy.

Ambal : Sri Valli, Deivanai (Urchavar).

Temple History :  Brahma, who was returning from Kailash after worshipping the Lord there, passed by Lord Muruga on the way and ignored him as if he had not seen him. This enraged Lord Muruga who enquired Brahma his name, whereabouts and his occupation and his knowledge of books. Brahman introduced himself and said that His (Lord Muruga’s) father had taught him all arts an ordained Him to create the world and that he was doing that living in Sathyaloga. Lord Muruga accepted it and asked Brahma the ‘Word’ that precedes all there and the meaning of that word. Brahma pleaded ignorance and craved for mercy. Lord Muruga ordered that Brahma be imprisoned for not knowing the meaning of ‘OM’. Lord Subramaniyar adorned Himself with a garland of Rudhratcha Seeds and with a Kamandala carried on with the work of creation. In this temple the moolavar holds in His hand a garland of Rudhratcha Seeds and Kamandala.Kandapuranam was staged here in a Mandapam which is in good condition even today (It belongs to the 11th century). It is said Lord Muruga appeared on the stage and cleared the doubts. Lord Muruga of this shrine appeared as a lad and brought Pamban Swamigal here for worship when the latter was roaming in search of this shrine.
