Thanks giving:
  This is a two tier temple in the midst of dense forests. The idol of the presiding deity was damaged in days of yore and the temple too became dilapidated. Regular pujas came to an end. Sri Kripanandavariar took up the renovation of the temple in the year 1979. A new idol was made for the presiding deity. But the old idol could not be removed. Therefore, a Mandap was built where the old idol was installed while a temple above this was built installing the new idol. Thus, it became a two tier temple with deities installed in each. The two temples are constructed with high engineering skill that the water used for the abhishek of the Lord in the upper level will fall on the Lord in the Ground too through a hole specially made for the purpose. 
 Greatness Of Temple:
  Dressed as a king: Lord Balamuruga in the upper temple always appears in His royal attire known as Raja Alankaram. It is the faith of the devotees that seeing the Lord in the Royal form would ensure high position and leadership in life. The consorts of Muruga, Valli and Deivanai are not by the side of the Lord but grace in the form of the holy springs. Valli Theertham is in the middle of the hill in the form of a well, hence the place is known as Malaikeni- a spring the hill. Kil Palani: Generally, devotees go up on the steps to have the darshan of the Lord in hill temples. Here, people step down to reach the Lord. Devotees call this temple Kilpalani (Palani downward). During the 7 day Skanda Sashti festival, Surasamharam (killing the demon Surapadma) takes place on the sixth day followed by Valli-Deivanai wedding festival on the seventh day.  
  Temple History:
  A king belonging to the Pandya dynasty had the desire of building a temple for Lord Muruga. While he was here on hunting and resting after drinking the water from a spring , he fell asleep. Lord Muruga appeared in his dream and directed him to build the temple here. Accordingly, the old aaand first temple came into being.
