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.

  • nice.. even drive bike can directly uphill. good place to get married on a day

  • This location is Peaceful, dust free, silent, windy free from city crowd. there is two way to access the temple the staircase by walk and road by vehicles. we can spend more time in this temple peacefully. But the price of Prasadam in temple stall is very expansive.

  • One of the oldest temple near Chennai. Best time to visit temple is at evening. There are many small Temples near this location. So plan accordingly using Google Map

  • Very nice Lord Murugan temple in a small mount. We can drive car to top of the mountain. We have steps.
