This is one of the Muruga temples in tamilnadu with the temple dedicated to Murugan perched on a small hillock. With temples of Meenakshi and Sundereswarar downhill.Very near Kumbakonam in Thanjavur district.and on the banks of a tributary of river CAUVERY. This temple is supposed to be dated to the 2 nd century BC. The temple is said to have been badly damaged in the Anglo French war between Hyder Ali and British, which was renovated and maintained by the Govt of Tamilnadu

This is one of the most important of the 6 temples in the Aarupadaiveedu trip. We reached the temple at around 7 in the evening from Tiruttani. There is no hill as such but we have to climb 60 steep steps (each representing the Tamil year) to reach the sanctum. The names of the Tamil years are written on the wall for each step and it is said that sitting on the corresponding step of the birth year brings luck. Taking a special darshan ticket brings you closer to the inner sanctum. We were very fortunate to have a good Darshan, sitting close to his feet. Being a Thursday, we could also see the diamond vel of the Lord. The Lord is called Swaminatha here as he was a teacher to his father in explaining the Pranavamanthra. The temple is a very old and beautiful one, close to Kumbakonam.
