Religious Site · Tourist Spot
Nestled on a hillside, Tirupparankunram is famous as one of the six sacred abodes of the Hindu god of war Lord Murugan. This colorful and ornate temple with intricate stone carvings was probably built in the place of an ancient Jain cave. The main altar with the statues of Shiva and Vishnu facing each other is a rarely found feature in ancient Hindu sanctuaries. The surrounding shops offer plenty of souvenirs. The temple receives a large number of devotees each day, but Tuesdays and Fridays are the most crowded.
