 Greatness Of Temple:

Sri Navaladi Karuppuswami is in the form of a Peeta or a platform in a small pit.  The temple is built among the stones placed by traders in early days.  This peeta is drawn with eyes, nose and tilak with sandal and dressed (Alankara) as a deity.  A turban is also placed on the peeta.  Devotees write their prayers in paper and tie it in the naval tree.  They are not removed but are placed in the temple complex.  As these are considered a petition submitted to Lord, no body has the courage to touch them.  The Karuppuswami Peetam is just a little away from the temple where people sacrifice Kida-animal and cocks as their prayer commitments after realizing their wishes.  There is also a custom of offering chappal Kanikka in the peepal tree-Arasa Maram.


Three Vels – a weapon with a long handle with a sharp base at the end as in the hands of Lord Muruga with two horses nearby re installed in the temple.  Those who had committed wrongs knowingly, punch a lime fruit on these vels and pledge that they would not repeat the sin.  The horses nearby are the witnesses to the pledge. These vels are known as Sakthi Vel or Satya Vel.  Those cheated by others also pray to the Vels for remedy.

  Temple History:

Traders in olden days were using this path for their travels.  When they reached this place, it was night.  They placed a stone they brought with them under the Naaval tree and slept.  Next day, when the continued their journey, they could not lift the stone they placed there.  Sri Karuppusami appeared through a devotee and said that He had stayed there and advised them to build a temple.  Devotees followed the order and built the temple.


As the deity had chosen the place under the Naaval tree, He is praised as Naavaladi Karuppuswami.
