Tiruttani Murugan Temple Seva

Tiruttani Murugan Temple

Tiruttani Temple History and Pooja details

Lord Murugan was the main deity in this temple. The Inscriptions drawn on the temple walls says that temple was built by Pallava Kings during 9th-10th Century AD, Later this temple was renovated by Chola Kings.

As per the Folklore, Once Narada visited Kailasa and gifted a Divya Phalam (powerful Mango fruit) to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi. Narada set the condition that fruit can’t be halved. It can only be offered to one person whom they love most. Lord Siva called his two sons Lord Murugan and Lord Ganesha then said like this who round this Universe thrice faster will be gifted with the Divya Phalam. Lord Murugan started the journey on his Vahanam Peacock but Lord Ganesh was thinking about his Vahanam Rat. Lord Murugan was surprised to find Divya Phalam with Lord Ganesh. Narada then explained that Ganesh went around his parents thrice who are his universe by this he was eligible for getting that Divya Phalam. Lord Murugan got upset and left Kailasa and started residing on Earth at Palani hills and then moved to Tiruttani hills for Peace.

One day Lord Murugan see King Nambirajan’s daughter Srivalli and wish to marry her. For that, he requested Ganesh to take the form of a wild elephant and frightened her. Murugan saved her and expressed his wish to marry, Srivalli also started loving Murugan and expressed her willingness then they get married here.

In the event of Lord Murugan’s wedding, Indra (God of Heaven) gifted a Sandalwood stone. Even today, sandalwood paste applied to the deity is gathered from this stone only.

An interesting story attached to this temple, i.e., Indra Deva (God of heaven) gifted Murugan with Airavat after marrying his daughter, Devasena. Murugan observed that Indra’s wealth started decreasing as Airavat started moving away from Heaven. Murugan thought of returning Airavat but Indra did not accept. Indra requested Murugan to face Airavat towards him to retain his wealth. That is the reason in this temple elephant image faces towards East.

During the war with Tarakasura, Murugan got injured from the discus thrown by him. Even now also we can see that cleft at the main Idol’s chest.  After the war, Murugan gifted that Chakra to Lord Vishnu.
