about vayalur murugan temple

Dedicated to Lord Murugan also known as Thamiz Kadavul meaning God of Tamils, Vayalur Murugan temple was built by Cholas in the 9th century. Surrounded by paddy fields and coconut groves, Vayalur Murugan temple is a highly revered, living narrative of Tamil mythological lore. 

As you walk into the temple's complex passing the holy, majestic threshold of the temple's rajagopuram, you can spot a beautiful tree almost entwined with the temple's structure marked by a white noticeboard. Called Vanni tree, it holds immense religious, scientific and mythological significance and is considered to be the sacred tree or sthala vriksha of Lord Shiva. Right in front of the temple is a holy tank believed to have been built by Lord Murugan himself.

While the temple's presiding deities are Lord Athinathar (Shiva lingam) and Lord Murugan along with Sri Valli and Goddess Deivayanai, you will also come across shrines of Lord Ganesha, Balipeedam and Dwajasthambam. For a mythological junkie the temple is a treasure trove of rare finds with its ancient epigraphs and unique sculptures such as the rare idol of Lord Nataraja (dancing Shiva) in the Chathura tandava form with Muyalagan, the dwarf demon, underfoot.
