Trip Planner: Asia / India / Tamil Nadu / Tiruvallur District / Thiruthani / Thiruthani Murugan Temple
Thiruthani Murugan temple is a Hindu temple, on the hill of Thiruttani, Tamil Nadu, India, dedicated to Lord Muruga. The hill has 365 steps indicating 365 days of the year. It is one of the Arupadaiveedu, the six holy abodes of Lord Muruga. The other five are Palani Murugan Temple, Swamimalai Murugan Temple, Tirupparangunram Murugan Temple, Pazhamudircholai and Thiruchendur Murugan Temple. Thiruthani is 87km from Chennai.HistoryThe origins of this temple, like most Hindu temples, are buried in antiquity. This temple has been mentioned in the Sangam period work Tirumurugaatruppadai composed by Nakkeerar. It has been patronized by the Vijayanagar rulers and local chieftains and zamindars. The original animal mount of Murugan is believed to have been an elephant, compared to the peacock which is considered to be the most common mount. The white elephant, is considered a powerful, terror striking animal. The iconography is maintained only in two places, namely, this temple and Tiruttani Murugan Temple. thumbLegendLegend also has it that Indra the king of the Gods gave his daughter Deivayanai in marriage to Skanda, and along with her presented his elephant Airavatam as part of his dowry offering. Upon Airavatam's departure Indra found his wealth waning. Subramanyar is said to have offered to return the white elephant, however Indra bound by protocol refused to accept a gift that he had made, and insisted that the elephant face his direction, hence the image of the elephant in this temple also faces the east.Plan my Tiruvallur District trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Special time for my birthday, climbing the foot steps without an hiatus was manageable, but it depends on individuals and there are many places to recess on the pathway. There is an good driveway for the vehicles to pass through the mountain and Temple Board bus facility can be availed near foothills. After you reach the temple there are separate queues for different costs in order to have quick darshan or on average timings. The temple does comply with most of the facilities. There are some other temples and attractions to visit nearby in an hour or so journey and it's worth the time.
ஆறுபடை வீடுகளில் ஒன்று. பழமை வாய்ந்த கோவிலுக்கு புதுமை சேர்க்கும் வகையில் ராஜ கோபுரம் அமைக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. One among six great temples of Lord Muruga. To add beauty to the old temple a great tower is build in this place. Must visit this temple, if you are visiting this place.
One of my favourite deities temple, Lord Subramaniam ( Murugan ). Very popular with South Indians of all Hindu community. Again a very peaceful place, where you feel the positive vibes around.
People must visit this place. Hindu Devotional place. Lord muruga temple. Car parking available. Regular Bus services for the temple.
My favorite place. If you get special entry ticket its very easy to get dharisanam. You can see a better scenic view during early morning. Also best time to visit is early morning to have real spiritual feeling.
