 Greatness Of Temple:

There are 84 steps to reach this hill temple.  The design of the sanctum sanctorum is noteworthy.  The devotee can see Lord alone if he/she is just in front of the shrine.  If the devotee looks at the shrine either from the left or right of the shrine, he/she can have darshan of the Lord either with Mother Valli or Mother Deivanai.  The Dwarapalakas (securities) at the entrance hold the weapons Vajram and trident.


The abishek Vibhuti (sacred ash) is offered as Prasad.  During the eight day Skanda Sashti festival, the event of destroying demon Surapanma takes place on the sixth day while Valli wedding festival takes place on the seventh day and that with Deivanai is celebrated on the eight day.  This is also the birth place of Sekkizhar, the author of Peria Puranam.  There is a temple for the saint at the foot hills.  As the place has a hill (Kundru in Tamil), it is named Kundrathur.  Lord Valanchuzhi Vinayaka graces in a shrine on the hill route.

  Temple History:

After conquering the demons in Tiruporur, Lord Muruga proceeded to Tiruthani in a happy mood.  He installed a Shiva Linga and performed Shiva Puja on His way with deep meditation.  This temple was later built by Kulothunga Chozha.  Lord Shiva, worshipped by Muruga graces in the name of Kandleeswarar in a separate shrine.
