Arulmigu Kuzhandhai Velayutha Swami Temple, Kurunthamalai

Date: 30th April 2017

Visitors: Arun, Shilpi and Harsh

Timing: 7:00 AM to 12 Noon, 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Fee: Parking Rs 20

Main Deity: Lord Murugan

After confirming the pooja timings in Madeswara temple kuttayiur we reached Kurunthamalai at 6:30 PM. We were not aware the temple will be closed very soon. During festivals the temple will be open for longer time. The person at the parking asked us to rush as the temple will be closed at 7. There were some 50+ steps to climb up. There are small shrines for lord ganesha and karupanna swamy on the way up. There were only couple of people only before us and they too were leaving. The temple is located on the small hillock and the evening views from the top is amazing. The idol of lord murugan was decorated beautifully and we had a nice darshan in temple. We were there till the closing time and climbed down. The temple gets lot of visitors from the nearby and faraway places during the festivals like thaipoosam and tamil new year. There is also a shrine for Lord hanuman on a smaller hillock opposite.
