 Greatness Of Temple:
  The temple is on the banks of River Varaha considered as sacred as the holy Ganga.   There are two Marudha trees-one male and the other female on the river bank.   It is also called Brahmma theertha.  Lord Muruga graces the devotees with His six merciful faces accompanied by His consorts Valli and Deivanai.  Lord Rajendra Chozheeswarar and Mother Aram Valartha Nayaki bless the devotees from their respective shrines with separate flag posts-Kodimaram each.  As the temple was built by Rajendra Chozha, in popular terms, this is called Big Temple.  The signs of the 27 stars and the 12 zodiac signs are shown on the roof of the Peacock Mandap opposite Lord Muruga shrine.  As the shrine of Lord Mrutyunjaya also is in the temple, many celebrate their 60th and 80th birthdays here.
  Temple History:
  During his rule of this region, Rajendra Chozha went for hunting on a day.  He saw a swine feeding its cubs.  The king shot an arrow on the Mother pig leaving the cubs in distress.  Lord Muruga appeared before the little ones, fed them with milk and quenched their hunger.  To repent for the sin committed by leaving the cubs in hunger and to make the mercy of Lord Muruga known to all, the king built this temple.
Special Features:
  Miracle Based: This is a very big temple in Theni district. Though Lord Shiva is the presiding deity in the temple, it is more popularly known as Balasubramaniar temple.
