Sri Muthumalai Murugan

Introduction

Muthumalai Murugan Temple is dedicated to Lord Murugan, located in the Kinathukadavu, Coimbatore district, Tamilnadu.  The temple is located on the top of a hill. The temple is said to be more than 1000 years old.

Puranic Significance 

While Lord Muruga was going around the world in his Peacock vehicle, a pearl from his crown fell down. The Lord placed his feet on this place to pick up the gem, hence the name Muthumalai. Lord Muruga appeared in the dream of a girl and told her that there were three Karai plants in a row and that He was under the plant in an idol form. The girl informed the villagers but there were no takers. Lord Muruga appeared repeatedly in the dream of the girl on three Kruthika star and Bharani star days and reminded her. The curious girl herself went to the place and was excited to see the plants. The villagers began to believe her. They planted the Vel weapon and began the worships on Kruthika days. A committee was then formed and the temple was built with Mandaps and the idol installed in the sanctum sanctorum.

Special Features

The devotee gets relieved of all adverse aspects on him if he worships Muruga in this temple on Thaipoosam day, the Lord holding His Vel weapon. Devotees say a ray of light emanates from an ant-hill near the temple.

Besides the six places celebrated as army camp centres (Aaru Padai Veedu) of Lord Muruga, all the hills are considered Home of Lord Muruga. He is also on the Muthumalai in Muthukavundanur situated on the border of Kerala in Coimbatore district.
