Temple of Lord Murugan

We visited this most famous temple of Lord Murugan, also one of six abodes of Lord Murugan. The deity here is known as Dandayudhapani Swami, the Lord having the Staff in his Hand. We see the deity is in a standing position with a baton in his hand. He has the look of a person who has renounced all worldly pomp. He has just a loincloth besides the baton. The temple houses a big complex. A nice visit.

Heavenly place

In this temple Bala Murugan is the main deity. Check out for sandal powder (sandhana abhishekam) done on the deity which is believed to have very good medical value.

Excellent visit

I had excellent dharshan of Lord Dhandayuthapani. Best time to visit the temple is when there is no festival.
