The first striking thing about this temple is the serenity; right on the edge of the beach in Tiruvanmiyur, the constant sound of the waves adds further magic to the divine experience; The obvious advantage of this temple is that you will have the equivalent experience of having visited each of the six Lord Murugan shrines in Tamilnadu; Aside of...

A beautiful complex having all muruga perumals in one complex. It is just beautiful and the prohits in the complex are very helpful, It is a very comfortable temple and we can come out of the temple feeling that we have visited the main temple

In the year 1984, the sage Kanchi Paramacharya was camping at Gulbarga in Karnataka State, when Dr. Alagappa Alagappan, an Ex-UN Official went to have his darshan. He mentioned to the Acharya regarding having a single temple complex for all the six Padai Veedu temples of Lord Muruga at one place and that too in granite. The sage readily agreed... More

Located at Besant Nagar,Aarupadai Veedu temple attracts a lot of people from across the globe.While lord Murugan is the famed lord in tamil nadu but you rarely find all the six avatars of Lord Murugan under one roof.This rare form can be found at Aarupadai Veedu temple.

This temple has made murugan bhakthas to have darshan of all the six holy destinations of Lord Muruga in one place. But the surroundings need care.Neither the cleanliness nor hygene is maintained near the temple.But as the Lord smiles you forget all these aspects and start reciting the vetri vel muruganukku arohara gosham.The temple is a reasonably good place to...

In Hindu convention, there is a belief that Lord Murugan, Son of Lord Shiva has six avatars and six places have been chosen by Him like Thirutani, Palani, Pazhamudir Solai near Madurai, Thiruchendur - all places within Tamilnadu, India. For busy people and for those who cannot afford to travel to all the six places to have a Darshan of... More
