ABOUT Tiruchendur TEMPLE

Tiruchendhur is one of those Murugan temples that holds significance in various aspects. Firstly, this temple is one of those arupadai veedu or six divine houses of Lord Muruga and the only one among them to be situated beside the sea shore. Lord Muruga is worshipped by the name of Shri Subramanya swamy here. The temple has a eleven storeyed rajagopuram or in other words the main gopuram, the gateway tower facing the East. The temple’s architecture is something to be mentioned here. The temple has a South facing entrance and the inner sanctum sanctorium is preceded by a series of pillared halls. The first hall from the entrance is called the Shanmugha Vilasa Mandapam, where Shanmugham is one of the names of Lord Muruga. There are separate shrines of Valli and Devayani, the wives of Muruga in other enclosures within the temple. On the western side of the temple there are shrines of Viswanatha and Visalakshi and a shrine dedicated to one of Muruga’s wives – Valli on the northern side. The image of the main deity, Subramanian Swamy stands tall with four hands while the image of the uthsava moorthy or the deity that is taken out in processions is found with six faces and twelve hands. Like in the majority of the Murugan temples, the main deity blesses the devotees in standing posture. There are eight lingams or phallic structures of Lord Shiva in the temple, which is believed to have been worshipped by Muruga before waging a war with the asura Surapadman. The destruction of Surapadman is celebrated as Soora Samaharam. The Lord is believed to have created a well named Skanda Pushkarni with his spear after the war, the water of which is believed to potent with healing properties. In the famous festival months of Masi , panguni among others , one can find a significant increase in the number of people visiting the temple and offering their prayers. The Lord Karthikeya’s heroics will be re-enacted through plays, sermons, sloka recitations and the whole place boasts of a divine energy with the names of Muruga in the lips of people. The skandha sashti festival is one of the biggest highlights when thousands of people throng the temple premises to witness the Soora Samharam event. This temple is recognized on spiritual and architectural grounds and one should definitely pay a visit to this temple in their lifetime.
