ABOUT Palani TEMPLE

Subhramanya swamy or Lord Muruga, the divine son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathy has six holy houses one of them being the temple of Palani. 'Thiruaavinankudi' is a place located in Dindigul District, on the bottom of the Palani hill bottom where Murugar is known as 'Kuzhanthai Velayuthaswami' and was worshipped by Goddess Lakshmi. There is the main Murugan temple on the top of the Palani hill top where he is known by the name 'Dhandayuthapani'. The Lord is in a meditative state and carries a staff as weapon in his hands. This is the place where Lord karthikeya resided after a small incident within his family over a divine fruit. Here, the main deity is made out of a combination of nine poisonous substances, very smartly constructed by the great Saint Bhogar. The story goes like this, the celestial sage Naradha, once brought a divine fruit, popularly believed to be a mango to Lord Shiva and Parvathy with a condition that it must be eaten as a whole. Lord Shiva, who shared everything with Devi Shakthi , decided to give the fruit to his sons and kept a test that whoever circled around the world twice and came first will receive the prized fruit. Lord Muruga, immediately set about the journey in his vahana – the peacock. Lord Ganesh, saying that his parents are the world to him circled them thrice. Lord Shiva was proud and satisfied with the answer and gave the fruit to Lord Vignesh. Lord Muruga who now came back after circling around the world thrice became angry knowing that Lord Ganesh had outsmarted him and decided to leave Mount Kailash for good and came and stood at what is today’s Palani renouncing everything. There is also another story associated with Palani Muruga – that of Idumban, the monster. The monster had been sent with two hills up his shoulders by a sage and he rested temporarily at palani as he was tired. Lord Murugar whose power made it tough for the monster to lift up the hill once again and resume his journey , fought and killed the monster only to bring him back to life by giving him two boons. The temple at Palani is hugely famous for the Prasad – panchamirdham which is a sweet made by mixing banana and jaggery. One can experience so much divine energy when they get to visit this temple.
