Thirupparamkundram is the first and foremost temple of Lord Muruga (Subramania) in India. Lord Muruga is well known as Karthick in North India.


  • Tamil Saint poet 'Nakkeerar', who composed the great literary work Thirumurugaattrupadai, the songs in praise of Lord Muruga, 2000 years back, in this divine place.

  • History says that Lord Muruga has battled to win over evils in six places and this is the FIRST place he won the evil 'Surapadhman'. So this place becomes the first Aru Padai Veedu (in Tamil 'Aru' means 'Six' and 'Padai Veedu' means 'a place where warriors camp during a battle')

  • Muruga married Deivayanai, daughter of Indra, after the victory over Surapadman, in this holy place.
