THis ancient temple located at the foot hills of a lovely hillock is part of the arupadai veedu temples for Lord Murugan. This temple is close to Madurai city and can be easily reached. Lots of devotees visit this temple to offer prayers to Lord Murugan. Arrangements have been made to ensure that pilgrims visiting can walk in properly organized lines and have proper darshan and also offer poojas.

It is one of the six famous temples dedicated to Lord Murugan. The temple is carved out of a mountain somewhere in the 8th century. According to Hindu beliefs, this is one of the rare temples where Lord Shiva (Destroyer) and Lord Vishnu are facing each other. Legend says that it is at this temple that Lord Murugan married Godess Devyani.

This temple is famous for it's rock cut carvings.

Actually there are five main sannithis including that of lord Muruga..

01. Karpaga vinayagar sannithi
02. Lord Muruga sannithi
03. Goddess Durga Devi sannithi
04. Lord Shiva sannithi
05. Lord Perumal sannithi

Apart from the abive, you could have Darshan of Goddess Annapoorni, Senthilandavar sannithi and Other sannithis..

The temple complex is huge and you could have Darshan of various other sannithis- if you are not in a hurry.

Ranked as one of the six famous Murugan temples, this temple is located a little away from the main city of Madurai on a hill top.Going through the serpentine q one can get the divine darshan.
Monkey menace to be guarded against.

We visited Muruga temple in the morning. Very good organization in temple and not much crowd. We took 50 rs and had good darshan in 10 mins. The idol is carved on stone and very different from other temples. Must visit if you go to Madurai!!

Lord Muruga means beauty. Simple god followed by lakhs and lakhs of poor devotees. Famous for his service to the language of Tamil and hence known as " Tamil Kadavul" Not much of crowd. if you want to go up the hill , you must have minimum 2 hours invested for this temple. Due to paucity of time, we had a darshan at the ground level only. Exceleent pious atmosphere. after coming out of temple, never miss to taste "Paruthipall" which is a sweet drink made out of Cotton seeds, Jaggery, coconut etc very nutritious and tasty too. Plenty of shops to buy gift articles but you should be a good bargainer to get those things at reasonable price.

There are Six Abodes of Lord Muruga in Tamil Nadu which are consdered divine. Rock Cut Temple in Thirupparangundram is one of those Six Temples.The Crowds are usually mor on Tuesdays and Fridays.thirupparankundram, is 8 km south of Madurai, . It is a surrender sanctuary, where Lord Murugan was married to Devayana Devasena, little girl of Indra, in the wake of destroying Surapadman. In the sanctuary there are separate holy places devoted to Shiva, Ganapathy, Durga, Vishnu and different gods. At the passageway to the sanctuary there are 48 columns with masterful carvings. The stone cut sanctuary of Subramaniya here is thronged with pioneers on all days of unique love. Its deepest place of worship is removed of a strong shake. Explore and experience this place more.and get divine blessings.
