 General Information:
     
 

The temple is facing east.  In Tamil Murugu means beauty.  So Lord Muruga is all handsome beyond the imagination of even a learned poet.  He appears smiling.   One day, people heard a thunder like noise in the south side of the sanctum sanctorum.   When people visited the place, they saw a deep pit in the shape of an eye with full of water.  Probably, Lord Muruga created a holy spring for Himself.  The pit is 8 feet deep.  The water is very sweet and perennial throughout the year.

 Greatness Of Temple:
     
 

The village lies around the temple with broad streets in a square shape facilitating easy car procession.  It is well planned four hundred years ago.  It is an exciting experience to see the car of the Lord accompanied by His consorts Valli and Deivanai being drawn by devotees and the temple managers.  Vattamalai Lord Muruga is the Kula Devatha-family deity of many of the villagers.

 
     
  Temple History:
     
 

It is noteworthy that the cleanliness and maintenance of the temple is a model for other temples to follow.  Every part of the temple is mopped with cow dung water.  It is said that about 300 years ago, Lord Muruga appeared in the dream of a trader and told him that He was lying as a swayambu in a particular place.  The trader went to the place along with other villagers and got the swayambu.  They made an idol of Muruga with His staff and installed HIM and the Swayambu and began daily pujas before building a temple with a sanctum sanctorum, Mahamandap and other parts.  Yet, the construction could not go continuously due to paucity of funds.  The financial situations depend of the farm earnings.  The people of the village decided to take up the cause themselves.  They brought sand, bricks and other materials in the bullock carts and employed sculptures and completed the construction before the schedule.  As Lord Muruga is always in a higher level, with due regard to the tradition, He is placed on a round (Vattam in Tamil) tall rock in the temple.  Hence, the name Vattamalai Andavar.
