 General Information:

Lord Vinayaka welcomes the devotees with His blessings in the name of Arasa Vinayaka.  Mother Durga graces the devotees as Mahishasuramardini with 8 hands from the goshta.  All the 9 planets the Navagrahas are on their Vahans in a standing posture.  There are shrines for Lord Viswanatha, Mother Visalakshi, Veerabagu the commander of Muruga’s army, Sun, Sani Bhagwan and Lord Chandikeswara.


Praying to Lord Muruga blesses the devotee with wise children capable of doing any job with self-confidence, it is believed.

Thanks giving:
  Devotees perform special abishek to Lord Muruga with pujas offering vastras. 
 Greatness Of Temple:
  As in Palani, Lord Muruga is facing west here too holding the Danda in right hand standing on a stage called Avudayar.  Those facing adverse Mars aspect (Sevvai Dosha) causing delay in marriage pray to Lord Muruga on Tuesdays offering yellow vastras and Sevvarali – red flowers – garlands.  There are 39 steps to reach the temple representing 27 stars and 12 zodiac signs.  Those with unfavourable stars pray here for relief.  Step puja is conducted on Chitra Poornima-full moon day in April-May and special pujas on monthly Kruthika and Sashti days.
There is a small hill outside the temple with a shrine for Idumban.  He appears with a Kavadi on the shoulders facing south.  Lord Vallaba Vinayaka graces with 10 hands.  There is a shrine for Saint Arunagiriar.  His Jayanthi festival is very grandly celebrated on the Moola star day in Aani month-June-July.  There is also a shrine for Lord Kala Bhairava.  108 conch abishek is offered to Kala Bhairava on Ashtami-8th day of the new moon fortnight.  As the place belongs to Son (Mahan) of Lord Shiva, it was named Mahanoor which later changed as Mohanur.
  Temple History:
  The story that Lord Muruga left His parents as they did not give him the Mango brought by Narada is popular among the devotees.  Despite all efforts to console Him, He told His parents-Lord Shiva and Mother Parvathi-that He would like to be alone and came to Palani.  It is said Mother Parvathi called Him to stop when he left them and responding to Mother’s call He stood for a moment in this place, according to sthala purana.   The temple is built here based on this event.
