  Temple History:
  Tamilians living in Modhibag Railway colony in Nagpur installed a Vel, the weapon of Lord Muruga and built a small temple. Due to land problem, the temple was built in a higher level place called Seminary hills. Local saits helped in the project. The idols of Lord Muruga, Valli and Deivanai were brought from Tamilnadu and installed in the temple.
The saits of the place wanted to build a temple for Lord Balaji and as requested by them, it was decided to have Lord Balaji in the ground floor and Lord Muruga in the upper floor. Some engineers offered free service in drawing out the plan for the temple.
The temple was built according to Sastras with Vimanas and other deities installed as per Agama rules. The consecration was performed in the year 1975. A Rajagopuram (Main tower) was built in the year 2005 installing more deities.
