  Temple History:

While Lord Muruga was going around the world in his Peacock vehicle, a pearl from his crown fell down.  The Lord placed his feet on this place to pick up the gem, hence the name Muthumalai.


Lord Muruga appeared in the dream of a girl and told her that there were three Karai plants in a row and that He was under the plant in an idol form.  The girl informed the villagers but there were no takers.  Lord Muruga appeared repeatedly in the dream of the girl on three Kruthika star and Bharani star days and reminded her.  The curious girl herself went to the place and was excited to see the plants.  The villagers began to believe her.  They planted the Vel weapon and began the worships on Kruthika days.  A committee was then formed and the temple was built with Mandaps and the idol installed in the sanctum sanctorum.
