Lord Murugan Puja

The Subramanya Temple which is located on the Vellore Road, opposite the Collectorate is only about forty years old however the statue of Lord Murugan, ensconced in the Temple's shrine room is more ancient and hails from the Siva Temple at Kadaladi.

In 2003 work was started on the enlargement of the Subramanya Temple and was finished in 2006 with abhisekham performed in 2007.

Even though Lord Murugan is a beloved God in Tamil Nadu, there are few Murugan Temples in Tiruvannamalai probably the most famous being the Pavala Kundru Temple set on a spur on the face of Arunachala.
