Kundrathur Murugan Temple - Review

Perched picturesquely atop a hill, the Kundrathur Murugan Temple or South Thanigai, is said to be that place where Lord Subramaniar or Murugan stayed, as and when he travelled to Tiruttanigai. It derives its second reference as South Thanigai from the fact that the statue of Lord Murugan is erected facing the northward direction. Further, the temple’s significance lies in its being “the only Murugan temple in Tamil Nadu where the God is standing in a north facing direction”. The temple is another brilliant construction from the reign of the Cholas.

Kundrathur Murugan Temple, Chennai Reviews

  • One of the good ancient temple near Tambaram. Steps are less so easy to climb even for elders atleast who are around 50-60age It also has the facility to reach the hill by car Too crowded during festival seasons. It also has a great view point Tonsure, toilet, bathroom facility also available in this temple

  • Good worshipping place. Located on hill top. Better not to go there during hot summer. Floors are so hot to burn hell Outta ur skin.

  • Divine place. But, Government should improve the roads in Kundrathur way. Temple management can put some shelter/Covering for the steps/footpaths. It's very hot in daytime.

  • Pleasant temple.. Far from kundrathur bus stand... Better to go by car or bike..

  • Very nice experience and purely divine power. Folks going with Uber or ola, watch out. Its not easy to find return cab and the location of the temple is bit isolated. I recommend to put a package trip and enjoy the temple. Nearby there is thiruneermalai perumal temple. Best to visit both at a stretch.
